South African retailers are continuing the trend of weekly specials on various technologies, offering a range of gadgets at discounted prices.

Incredible Connection, Dion Wired and Hi-Fi Corporation are offering specials on TVs, tablet PCs, cameras and more. Below are some of this week’s standout deals:

Acer Iconia A500 32GB Wi-Fi

Incredible Connection has dropped the price of the Acer Iconia A500 to R2,999.95.

The Android based tablet PC’s noteworthy features include a 10.1-inch screen with a 1280 x 800 resolution, 32GB of internal storage, a dual core Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM and an HDMI out port.

The Iconia A500 runs the older Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system, however Acer does plan on releasing the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the A500 in April, so you won’t be stuck on Honeycomb for too long.

Japanese entrepreneurs are building businesses based on 3D printing, showing the sort of pioneering spirit Prime Minister Shinzo Abe hopes can revitalise a calcified economy.
