Gateway to Release Rebranded Acer Iconia Tab A500

Just as Packard-Bell got a rebranded version of the Acer Iconia Tab A500, so too will Gateway by the looks of a few new images showcasing a tablet sporting their name. Gateway has been a subsidiary of Acer since 2007, so seeing the US-based computer manufacturer’s tag on a black variant of the Iconia isn’t farfetched in the slightest. Gateway’s version carries two model numbers, TP-A60W and PT-A60G, which could refer to two versions of the device with slightly different storage or WiFi/3G configurations. Otherwise, we expect the specs to remain the same with a 10.1-inch display, 1GHz Tegra 2 processor, and dual cameras on the front and rear.

No word on when Gateway might be unleashing this bad boy or at what price, but with the Iconia Tab A500 already available that shouldn’t matter much. When the Gateway version does drop we expect it to be priced around the same $450 level.

    I work with someone who used to work at Gateway. Most everyone knows they don’t really exist anymore so I’m not sure why Acer is wasting their time. Seems like it’s just a drain of cash flow hoping somehow people will buy them with another branding that is essentially extinct.

    As long as the specs are a bit different, it may not be a bad idea. It’s like GM selling buicks (they still do right?)
