Cyber Monday – Grab the Acer Iconia Tab W510 for $399

Posted on 26 November 2012

This is the only offer I’ve seen on a CloverTrail tablet so far but it’s quite a deal. $399 buys you the Acer Iconia Tab. You need to know up-front that you’re only getting 32GB of storage with this offer and that you should only expect around 16GB free but you do have a microSD slot available. Some of the savings could go towards a 32 or 64GB microSD card.
