Costco Has The Acer Iconia 32GB Version And Acer Case For $480

Costco seems to be pumping out the deals on tablets lately. Earlier this week we showed them having the Motorola XOOM for only $500. They’re now dropping prices for the Acer Iconia tablet, and throwing in a $40 Acer tablet case for free. Not too shabby considering the MSRP for the 32GB version is $500 with no case. If you’re thinking about picking one up, you might want to start hitting yourself though, because you missed an amazing deal on eBay where they were just $380.

With all these crazy deals on Honeycomb tablets, who here is picking one up? And if so, which one? Is everyone still thinking all these tablets are overpriced and lacking features to warrant the hefty price tags? Let us know.

Cheers Bryan!

    I must show my appreciation to this writer for rescuing me from this type of setting. Just after exploring throughout the the web and meeting tricks which were not pleasant, I figured my entire life was over. Being alive without the solutions to the difficulties you’ve solved by means of your good guide is a crucial case, as well as the ones which may have in a negative way damaged my career if I had not discovered your blog. Your good skills and kindness in touching all things was valuable. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not come across such a subject like this. I am able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks so much for this professional and amazing help. I will not be reluctant to suggest your site to anybody who needs and wants guidelines on this subject matter.

    got one from costco. amazing! and the case that comes with it is like the ipad smart cover except it doesnt turn the screen off. the case has that creased design of the smart cover and folds up and becomes a stand. the only problem i’ve had so far is that there is a stuck red/blue pixel in the middle and it came with a large piece of dust stuck under the screen. i will exchange it but other than that it’s amazing. and i love the full sized usb port

  • Robsbot The Robot

    If I can get netflix on a Galaxy Tab 10.1 I’ll be picking one up shortly.

    Xoom all the way baby. Wait, no I’m taking mine back for a galaxy 10.1 if moto doesnt figure out the LTE thing soon.

    • FortitudineVincimus

      and the SD card

    Saving up for the Kal-El tablets that will come out later this year.  You can’t show me video of that sweet FPS game on that then try to tempt me to buy a dual-core table.

    • Anonymous

      Also, is it just me or does that green background on the tablet make it look cheap?  I must not like green.

      • Anonymous

        then change the background. i bought one yesterday from costco and it has amazing build. it has a brushed metal back and if you put the camera on daylight white balance, the camera is really nice. it has 8x zoom and 720p video stock and people have mods to make it record 1080p. not even your phone can do that. also the usb host (full sized usb) is amazing. you CAN actually use this as a small computer instead of a large smartphone like the xoom. it’s a huge difference, the usb. it makes it really useful. go check it out at costco or best buy they have working models.

  • Hawk777th

    Whats the difference between this and the transformer?

    • http://twitter.com/Adiliyo Adil

      the transformer has the cool dock, an ips screen, and arguably better build quality.

  • Woodylee

    I originally got the acer from costco at this price but returned it for the xoom for $20 more.

    • Anonymous

      why did you switch it. i am in the same position right now. bought it from costco and i’m contemplating returning it for the xoom

  • Anonymous

    I’m finding it hard to resist. Which android tablet would you get, the Xoom or the Iconia?

    • Hoser

      Transformer.

      Sent from my Transformer.

      I bought the Iconia because of the full size usb and NTFS mount! Very cool app to have installed once you are rooted. I hook up my 1.5TB portable drive with all my dvd’s ripped to it. SO AWESOME!!!

      • hkklife

        Iconia Pros:-microSD slot functions out of the box
        -Fullsize USB port
        -A few full version games (if you care about such things)
        -16Gb version available for the price-conscious
        Xoom Pros:
        -Screen possibly a tiny bit better (but both Acer & Moto fall short of Transformers & iPad2)
        -Better build quality
        -Thinner & smaller overall bezel
        -No bloatware at all
        -Better camera quality

        I’d take a Zoom for $50 more than an Iconia but it’s definitely not worth $100 or $150 more, especially with the lack of a functional microSD card slot.

          How could either screen be considered worse than the iPad 2′s? Both are 1280X800 while the iPad is measly 1024X768. 

          • hkklife

            iPad2 has an IPS screen that is phenomenally clear & bright.  The Xoom & Acer both have TFT screens that are a bit dim (even at max brightness) and washed out looking.  Plus, their colors are not nearly as rich as the iPad or Transformer.   I still think that the Apple products have the most accurate touch sensitivity too. 

            If you could get the Acer’s SD slot & fullsize USB port with the Transformer’s screen and the Xoom’s formfactor you’d have a nearly-perfect Android tablet.

          • Anonymous

            I use both an iPad and Asus A500. I like both screens, but I would liken the iPad to a “sport” setting on a TV, with the Asus a “movie” setting. The iPad is very bright but seems cartoonish and does not support HD because of its 4:3 form factor. The Asus is better for videos and movies and seems more natural. Its also surprisingly good with Kindle in portrait mode. While the Asus does not have an IPS screen, its viewing angle and colors are better than any laptop I have used and I consider it to be excellent.

  • The Man

    hard to say they cost too much when u look at how much the full price of some of these smartphones cost. tabs are just giant smartphones running honeycomb anyway…

      Minus the calling feature. :P
      But I’m making calls just fine from my xoom wifi thanks to GooVe IP! Hah

        Nice!

        Much good that’s gonna do when you’re outside a WiFi zone…

        do you think the xoom wifi is better or the iconia. im still contemplating which one to keep

    Its heavy. I was messing with it the other day at Costco.  I think they’re too much still.

    • Anonymous

      I hope you’re kidding. After hauling around my laptop, then lifting groceries out of the car, and setting out dishes, I lifted my A500 and almost vaulted it up to the ceiling. It may be heavy compared to a piece of paper, but for what it does – a small PC;  its incredibly light.

      You seriously need some exercise if you think its heavy.

    Yesterday’s eBay deal : $475 for 32gb Transformer + Klipsch Headphones + 8GB micro SD

  • RonsterWVU

    Tim,
    I do appreciate your hard work to find these deals.
    However, I feel they should be titled differently.

    I am not running the site, but it might help with something like:

    Droid-Life-Deals(Findings): Costco blah blah…
    Something to make it not look like a news article, and more of a helpful deal or people looking to buy this.
    I mainly come to Droid-Life for the news articles, not so much for tablet specials…

    • Scott

      And using the actual name of the product would help, too. It’s Iconia, not Inconia.

  • Joe Beau

    I got the Iconia deal on EBay the other day.  I came in 2 days later.  It works GREAT!

    • caseyisajim

      Me too!  Only, mine’s coming in on Monday.  Didn’t see any reason to spend more and get the 32GB one when I’ll be storing everything in the cloud.
