Sources close to the retailer unveiled that ACER Iconia Tab A100 will launch in the U.S earlier than expected.

With a cost of only $300 compared to the $450 10-inch A500, this seven-inch tablet still features the same Android 3.2 system and Tegra 2 processor, but will be sporting a much smaller screen and memory storage of 8GB and 512MB RAM.

JT Wang also said that he expects a profit in the summer and an improvement in the fall — the combination of which would put ACER back in the top of the market.
