Acer has delayed their 7-inch Honeycomb tablet, the Iconia Tab A100, until the second half of 2011. The A100 was originally slated for an April 20 release date before being delayed to May 14, according to Amazon UK, and was priced at £299.99 (approximately $487).

Acer Iconia Tab A100Acer has given no reason for the delay, and only noted it after the Polish site Tabletowo noticed the product was pulled from Acer’s site and suggested Acer had scrapped the product.

The A100 debuted at Mobile World Congress last February. It was to be one of the first seven-inch Honeycomb tablets, a distinction it might now cede to the ViewSonic 7x. The Wi-Fi-only A100 will have a 1024 x 600 screen resolution, Nvidia Tegra processor, 512MB RAM, and 8GB of storage when it ships. Acer has not supplied a new release date, nor have they announced US availability.

Currently, Acer has a Honeycomb tablet on the market, the 10.1-inch Iconia A500.
