Acer to launch the Quad-Core Iconia Tab A110 tablet in the United States and Canada on October 30th
Acer is adding another tablet to its Iconia Tab family. The company has announced in a press release that it will be launching the A110 model on October 30th of this year. Based on an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, the portable device will apparently be available to customers in the United States and Canada for $229.99 USD/CAD.
According to the manufacturer, the Iconia Tab A110 is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 3 system on a chip that houses four processing cores (4-PLUS-1 architecture) clocked at 1.2GHz. In addition, users are provided with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal flash memory and a 7-inch LCD touchscreen display of 1024-by-600 pixels native resolution.
In terms of connectivity features, the tablet offers one USB 2.0 port complemented by Wireless LAN 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0 radios. Other specs include a 2MP front-facing web camera for video conferencing, 3.5mm audio jack and a built-in 3250mAh battery that reportedly lasts for around 7.5 hours on a single charge.
Compared with the Google Nexus 7 slate PC, which carries a $199 price-tag, the A110 is more expensive, but comes with an integrated HDMI interface and a microSD card reader slot for expanding storage space.
Acer’s new Iconia Tab is already available in the United Kingdom, priced at £179.98.
