The A110, which will go on sale at the end of this month on October 30, will ship with Android 4.1 OS (Jelly Bean) and will be powered by a quad-core, NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor. Its build is relatively lightweight, with the unit weighing in at only 0.86 pounds and measuring less than half an inch thick.
Other features include a 1024 x 600 resolution, micro USB and micro HDMI ports, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera for video chatting. The A110 comes with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage, but the unit also has a microSD card slot for expandable memory up to 32 GB. As for the battery, Acer claims that it can last for up to 7.5 hours.
The Iconia A110 seems poised to compete with the Google Nexus 7, another 7-inch, quad-core tablet that ships with Jelly Bean. It’s fitting, then, that the A110 is priced at $229.99, putting its cost right between that of the two Nexus 7 models ($200 for 8 GB and $250 for 16 GB).
