Acer Files the Quad-Core Iconia Tab A110 Tablet in the Affordable Folder


Acer, you know them. You love them; you have trusted them for years. Acer is a Taiwanese based Hardware Company that has been pumping out amazing computers, monitors and everything in between since 1976. With the recent market push into mobile computing it may seem that Acer did not bit as hard as some of their competitors. However, with the likes of devices such as the Acer Liquid Metal, the Acer Stream and the WP7 ready Acer Allegro it’s pretty obvious the company can make some very nice handsets. But Acer has also been producing tablets under the Iconia Tab moniker and it looks as if the company may have broken the mold, and I don’t mean by adding a QWERTY to a slate.  

With the tablet market slowly pushing out the likes of the desktop, more and more options have been showing up. Outside of the Amazon Fire the market for the 7 inch tablet seemingly does not have a ring leader. The 10 inch space is surely dominated by the iPad and until they offer up there rumored 7 inch tab it’s an open market to do what you will with the bottom line. The Acer Iconia Tab A110 is here, to do just that…maybe. Computex 2012 has shown off some great technological goodies from laptops to desktop and of course, tablets. The Acer Iconia Tab A110 was shown off at the conference and is set to murder any slate in the under $200 price range. The A110 is a 7 inch tablet that sports a 1024×600 pixel resolution at 170 pixels per inch. Inside the Iconia Tab A110 starts with a class leading NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad core processor that clocks in at 1.2 GHz. Delving a bit deeper on the specs sheet, the Iconia Tab A110 will have 8 GB of internal flash memory and 1GB of DDR3 RAM. You can also expect details like a huge 3420 mAh battery, a 2 mega pixel front facing web camera only, micro USB 2.0, HDMI output, expandable micro SD memory up to 32 GB and connectivity like, GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0. The Acer Iconia Tab A110 should start appearing for consumption sometime in Q3 this year and be priced at less than $200 bucks; essentially trying to tame the Fire that is Amazon.  

A quad core, Android 4.0 seven inch tablet for under two hundred dollars, any takers? The Iconia Tab A110 is a bit thick at 11.4 mm and surely could be improved in a few areas, but under $200 bucks makes this a sweet deal even with all that bezel. So let us know what you think of the new Acer Iconia Tab A110 in the comments below. And remember folks, the very best in mobile accessories is right around the corner.
