Acer Unveils Low-Cost 7in Android Tablet

Acer has taken the wraps off the Iconia Tab A110, an extremely low priced 7-inch tablet that will run Android OS 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and features an Nvidia Tegra 3 processor.

The device was spotted at the Computex Taipei trade show and, according to The Verge, will launch in the third quarter of 2012 with an aggressively cheap price of under $200. A simple currency conversion of that amount makes it just £129, though as usual with consumer electronics, things rarely end up costing as little on this side of the Atlantic.

It is also unclear at this stage if the A110 will arrive in Europe, though there are opportunities in the budget Android market here, as the Amazon Kindle Fire is still absent (and seems to be fading in popularity in the US) and a rumoured Google Nexus tablet from Asus has not come out yet.

Compared to other cheap tablets, Acer could be on to a winner, as The Verge suggests. “After using the A110 for a while, we’d say that you’d certainly get value for your money — its Ice Cream Sandwich skin is almost free of customisation, and it performed pretty well in a Quadrant benchmark with a score just short of the Asus Transformer Prime. It’s a little thick at 11.4mm, and the screen’s viewing angles aren’t so impressive, but next to a Kindle Fire at the same price point we know which one we’d choose.”

Acer also has a step-up version, the Iconia Tab A210, which is due around the same time and similarly specced except for a bigger 10.1-inch 1,280 x 800 screen. Both tablets reportedly feature 1GB of RAM, a single front-facing camera, and a microSD card slot. The A210 has a full-sized USB port and optional 3G; while the A110 has an HDMI socket with dual-display compatibility.
