Good news for those who were enticed by the rock-bottom price of the Nexus 7 but didn’t want to have to go through life without an expandable memory slot. The Acer Iconia Tab A110 is now officially available online, and it gives you all the specs you crave — including an SD card slot — while keeping a wallet-friendly $229 price tag.
Similar to the Nexus 7, the Iconia A110 features a more than capable Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 7-inch display, 1GB of RAM, and all running on the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The real difference comes at a loss in display resolution — of which the A110 features a 1024×600 display vs. the Nexus 7’s 1280×800 — and lack of NFC. The A110 also features micro HDMI out, another feature absent from the Nexus 7. Everything in life is a trade off, I suppose.
Still, with Acer’s solid build quality, just the right specs, and reasonable pricing, there’s no denying the Acer Iconia Tab A110 is a great tablet for just about anyone on a budget.
