Acer Iconia Tab A110: another sub-£200 Android tablet contender

Acer Iconia Tab A110: another sub-£200 Android tablet contender£200 will get you a fair bit of 7in tablet action these days – and we're not just talking about the Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire here either.

Take Acer's Iconia Tab A110, for example: it comes packing a near-HD resolution screen, a quad-core processor and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, all for a tempting pre-order price of just £180.

The A110 first came to our attention a few months ago, but Acer has now brought the speculation to an end and fully revealed its budget-friendly Android mini-slab.

We like Acer's approach too: it says the Iconia A110 is “a tablet that you can easily hold in one hand and still lets you enjoy web browsing, multimedia, or even work if you need to”. Yes, but only if we absolutely need to.

So to the vital statistics: there's an Nvidia Tegra 3 on board running at 1.2GHz, backed up by 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage (plus microSD slot), and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera (though no rear cam).

The display falls short of the 720p mark at 1024 x 600, but that shouldn't be too much of a setback given the screen size.

All in all, it's a capable-sounding piece of kit, though whether it offers enough to turn you away from its better-known direct competitors is another matter. Acer hasn't supplied specifics on pricing and availability, but eBuyer says it'll be shipping on October 1, and has dished up that £180 pre-order price.

Interesting, first time that I have seen the price of this and considering if has micro-sd! You also didnt mention it has HDMI out so its a pretty solid competitor to the Nexus 7

Certainly beats the Samsung Tab 2 for power but I think the screen res more relevant than Martin and would pass on it.
