Last night at Computex, Acer unveiled a couple of low-end Ice Cream Sandwich powered tablets, the Iconia Tab A110 and A210. The Acer 110 is a plain, rugged tablet with a matte finish and packs a 7-inch screen with 1024*600 resolution in its 11.4mm thick body. The A210 packs in a bigger 10.1-inch screen with 1280*800 resolution.
Both the tablets are powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 3 SoC, 1GB of RAM, Wi-Fi and the usual bunch of sensors. Both the tablets are powered by a 3600mAh battery, and lack any sort of camera. Other features of the tablets include a microSD card slot, 8GB or 16GB of internal memory, micro-HDMI port, a USB 2.0 port, and a micro-USB port.
Both the tablets are expected to go on sale sometime in Q3 of this year, and will be running on stock Ice Cream Sandwich. While Acer did not announce the pricing of the tablets, the devices are expected to cost around $200-250. The tablets are successor’s to the Iconia Tab A200 and A100, both of which failed to gain any significant market share. Hopefully, the low pricing of the A110 and A210 will help Acer in gaining a traction in the tablet market.
