The Acer Iconia Tab A110 first debuted back at Computex, in June. Back then, the 7-inch device was running Android 4.0, propelled along by its Tegra 3 processor. Slated for a Q3 release, we heard following the show that the A110 would in fact be bumped up to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean before it hit the shelves. True to their word, it's Q3 -- just, the device has been bumped to Jelly Bean, and a formal release has been announced.
The A110 is already up for pre-order with at least one UK based retailer, priced at £180. For the money we get -- besides Jelly Bean and Tegra 3 of course -- 8GB on board storage, expandable via microSD card, 1GB of RAM, a 1024x600 display, a 3420mAh battery, HDMI out and a 2MP front facing camera.
The A110 will of course be going toe-to-toe with Google's own, Nexus 7. Both tablets have key features which could win over the crowds. The Nexus 7 of course will receive it's updates directly from Google, has a better screen, and is cheaper for the comparable model. The A110 has a microSD card slot, which on its own may be enough to sway some towards the Acer offering.
With this, the Nexus 7, and Amazon's new Kindle Fire HD, the 7-inch tablet space is really beginning to heat up. There is no concrete release date provided by Acer for the A110's availability, but you can catch the full press release after the break.
