Official Acer Iconia A110 pics suggest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on board

Official Acer Iconia A110 pics suggest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on boardWith a big chunk the Android faithful still waiting for their Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update, it's safe to say 4.1 Jelly Bean remains a fair way off for a lot of people.

And yet here we have unfancied Acer (well, unfancied in the mobile scheme of things anyway) flaunting its upcoming Iconia A110 tablet with what looks like for all the world like Android JB as the default OS.

We're not talking some kind of leaked blurrycam shots, either – these are bona fide press shots from Acer itself on the device's registration page on registration page on eBuyer.

It shows a plain build of Jelly Bean, which together with the 7in form factor makes this very much a bit of a Nexus 7-alike – an association Acer no doubt wouldn't mind people making.

The Iconia A110 is set to be powered by a quad-core nVidia Tegra 3 processor running at 1.2GHz, partnered by 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. That 7in screen runs at 1024 x 600 (WXSGA) resolution, you've got HD video recording abilities and an HDMI port for porting those clips to a bigger screen or another external device.

One key difference between this and the Google Nexus 7, of course, is that you can actually buy the Nexus 7, while the Acer Iconia A110 remains stuck in coming soon-land.

Last we heard it was set to launch in Q3, which we're just about halfway through now, but that was when we assumed we'd be talking about Ice Cream Sandwich. Here's hoping the move to Jelly Bean (if that's what this confirms) doesn't mean an even longer wait.
