With the ever growing number of manufacturers who have entered the 7 inch tablet league, Acer doesn’t want to be catching up in that segment. And now it doesn’t have to worry about it, because its yesterday-announced Iconia A110 may become a serious threat to the leaders in the 7 inch class, the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD.
The Acer Iconia A110, as we stated before, is a 7 inch tablet, featuring the latest Android version, dubbed Android 4.1 Jellybean. Under the hood lies a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, accompanied with 1GB RAM. It comes with 8GB on-board storage, and a microSD card slot that supports cards of up to 32GB. That’s a plus for the Acer A110, because not so many tablets in its class have support for external memory. The other specs include a 2MP front-facing camera, USB 2.0 slot, microHDMI output, and the usual connectivity features, like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS, etc.
The tablet is expected to hit US and Canadian markets on October 30th, and it will be sold for a price of $230 (USD and CAD). We expect the tablet to hit more markets in the coming months.
So what do you think? Will this tablet become a serious threat to the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD? For some reason, we like to place our bets on this one, as it fills the gaps that its two rivals have, such as the microSD card slot, USB 2.0 and microHDMI output, which make this device a perfect multimedia center. We would like to hear your opinion down in the comments section.
