Acer Iconia Tab A110 set to go on sale in US and Canada on October 30 for $230
The 7-inch Acer Iconia Tab A110 powered by Android Jelly Bean is set make its debut in the US and Canada on October 30. The tablet has been priced at $230 for the 8GB model
The Acer Iconia Tab A110 was introduced back at the Computex as a budget Android tablet. The 7-inch tablet is now headed to the US and Canada. According to Engadget, the Iconia Tab A110 is set to go on sale on October 30 in the US and Canada for a price of $229.99 for the 8GB model, which is a bit cheaper than its price in Europe. Apparently, only the 8GB model is set to hit the shelves in US.
Just to refresh, the Acer Iconia Tab A110 runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on a 7-inch screen that offers a resolution of 1024 x 600p. It comes powered by an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad core processor clocked at 1.2GHz. For memory, the tablet offers 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage which is expandable by a microSD card slot.
Other features include a 2MP front camera, GPS, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, micro USB 2.0, micro HDMI and a 3.5mm audio jack.
The tablet measures 0.45-inch in depth and weighs around 13.05 ounces, while it also packs a 3420mAh battery for the necessary power backups.
Now the Acer Iconia Tab A110 would have it easier being a nice alternative for a budget 7-inch tablet powered by Android Jelly Bean only if there were no Nexus 7 tablets. Compared to the $230 price tag of the Iconia Tab A110, consumers will also look at the Nexus 7 which is priced at $199 for the 8GB model and its $249 for the 16GB model, and that could be a real deal breaker.
However, it would be interesting to see how the Iconia Tab A110 fares with the advantage of a microSD and HDMI out but it’s going to be tough to beat any Nexus 7 tablets.
