Move over rumored Nexus tablet, Acer wants to beat you at your own game. The company unveiled a new 7-inch tablet at Computex this week and the details are enticing enough to pique the interest of even the most lukewarm tablet enthusiast. It isn’t that the slate does particularly impressive or inventive aside from its Tegra 3 quad-core CPU and Android 4.0 operating system. Rather, it’s the price you might be able to pick one up for.
Word is that Acer plans to market the Iconia Tab A110 for less than $200, pitting it directly against the Kindle Fire but offering a more robust and traditional Android experience. The low cost plus high-end specs might be attributable to NVIDIA’s recently announced Kai program, but there has been no official confirmation.
Additionally, Acer showed off the Iconia Tab A210, which will feature similar specs to the A110 in a 10.1-inch form factor.
