The Android powered tablets were not much popular due to the high cost and poor user experience. However, Amazon completely changed the scenario with the launch of its powerful yet budget friendly Kindle Fire tablet, which retailed for just $200 in the US. This year, Google and Acer launched the first Nexus tablet, the Nexus 7 which took the sales of Android tablets to another level. If these were not enough, Amazon recently announced the successor of the original Kindle Fire to compete with the Google’s popular tablet.
In this highly competitive market, Acer is the newest player to join the bandwagon. The company recently announced a new 7 inch tablet, the Acer Iconia Tab A110. This device was earlier showcased at Computex in June. It runs on the latest Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) Operating System. The specs of this device is almost similar to the Google Nexus 7.
Acer Iconia Tab A110 features a 7 inch display, sporting a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels, Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) OS, 1.2 GHz NVIDIA quad-core processor, 2 megapixel front-facing camera for video calls, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB internal memory, MicroSD card slot, 32 GB expandable memory, Google Play Store, micro HDMI, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0 and 3420 mAh battery. This device measures 196 x 126.5 x 11.4 mm and weighs 370 grams.
Nexus 7 does not features a MicroSD card slot, while the new Kindle Fire still runs on the old Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) OS. On the other hand, Acer Iconia Tab A110 is one step ahead of these devices, thanks to the MicroSD card slot and the latest version of the Android OS. Acer has not announced the price of this device, but it is expected to be around $200.
