It looks like Google and ASUS have some competition in the sub-$200 quad-core tablet market. Acer was apparently looking to be first out of the gate when they unveiled their sub-$200 7-inch Tegra 3 Iconia Tab A110 at Computex the other day. Featuring Android 4.0, 1GB of RAM, a microSD card slot, front-facing camera, and a HDMI out port with dual-display support, the Iconia Tab A110 looks to give the Nexus tablet a run for its money.
It looks to be a nice low-cost tablet option and certainly does its best at leaving Android 4.0 alone, but once the Nexus tablet is announced, I fear the Acer Iconia Tab A110 will become nothing more than a tablet once mentioned at Computex.
We’ll just have to wait and see. For all we know, the Nexus tablet doesn’t even exist — yea, I just gave myself a slap for even thinking such a thing. One thing is for sure: good tablets are quickly becoming affordable, and we’re on our way to sub-$99 octo-core tablets. Bring ‘em on baby!
