At this writing, the event is still ongoing, but we haven't heard dates and availability for the Iconia in the U.S. market. Reports on the Web say Iconia is due for release in January 2011 in the United Kingdom, for 1500 GBP.

While Iconia's unique design captured the bulk of attention, Acer also introduced 7-inch and 10-inch Android tablets, a 10-inch Windows 7 tablet, and a 5-inch Android smartphone the company referred to as a "mini-tablet." Availability for those will be further into 2011. The Windows tablet will likely be by February, according to Acer CEO and President Gianfranco Lanci. "For the others, it's less under our control. It depends on when the Android tablet operating system is available," says Lanci. "We don't want to release a tablet with a phone OS."
