7-inch Acer Iconia Tab A110 is a quad-core Ice Cream Sandwich machine for under $200

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.

    Specs other than cpu would be nice, you know the ones on the sign right next to the product… Like ram, cameras etc..

    • Jeffrey Evans

      I was wondering that too, as well as how stock the device will be.

      • Del373

        Unless Acer crams some of their own bloatware (if they have any) I’m willing to bet this tablet will be completely stock.

        Seeing as there’s no mention of 3g/4g radios it’ll probably be wifi only and sold in stores like Best Buy, Wally World, etc.

        • Jeffrey Evans

          I’m thinking stock also, it’s the cheapest way to get product out the door.

      According to Phone Arena: The Acer Iconia Tab A110 is a sequel to the Acer Iconia Tab A100 with a 7
      inch display offering resolution of 1024 x 600. The quad-core NVIDIA
      Tegra 3 processor
      is under the hood and there is 1GB of RAM on board. 8GB of native
      memory can be expanded by using microSD cards and the tablet offers
      micro HDMI and micro USB ports. Android 4.0 is running the show.

      It also looks like the CPU is running at 1.2GHz according to the picture.

      Go go gadget zoom! Looks like it says 2 or 3 MP camera and comes with a uni-body design carved from a hybrid of unicorn horn and ivory tusk.

    Sign me up. I have the A100 and it has been a good experience. Not to mention, I like a company that does what they say. When they said they were going to upgrade the A100 to ICS, they did it. (Samsung can learn a thing or two.)

      samsung has updated the sgs2 just fine, blame carriers.

      • Alex Bradley

        Because the carriers are totally to blame for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 (WiFi), Galaxy Tab 10.1 Google I/O Edition (WiFi), Galaxy Tab 7.0+ (WiFi), Galaxy Tab 7.7 (unlocked), Galaxy Tab 8.9 (WiFi) all not getting Ice Cream Sandwich? This is an article about a WiFi-only tablet, not a phone, so the Galaxy S2′s update schedule is completely irrelevant to this thread.

  • YOMAMA

    Wouldn’t it be a better idea to get the nexus tablet? Since it’ll probably get updates first…

    id never dop money on acer products, they are awful, cheap rubbish in my past experience.

    • AJA0

      I have the A500, it’s been excellent. Build quality is light years ahead of cheap plasticy samsung, and even better than Motorola IMO.

      Maybe Acer had some bad products in the past, idk, I just know that their current lineup is looking pretty sweet.

  • slsf617

    I’m glad that it has bluetooth sadly the nook tablet overlooked that
