Acer reveals 7-inch Iconia Tab A110 with Android 4.1 and MicroSD

Acer has just unveiled the Iconia Tab A110, a 7-inch Android-powered tablet that will serve as a direct competitor to Google’s Nexus 7. The device sports the same quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor as the Nexus 7, though Acer has gone a bit further and added additional features like a MicroSD slot and MicroHDMI port. The best part? The A110 will ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on board.

These enhancements may make the A110 more appealing to some customers than Google’s offering. Pricing and availability remain a mystery, though the company previously said the tablet would be aimed at the sub-$200 range. Either way, we’re told to expect a full-scale launch in the coming weeks. Catch the full presser after the break.

    Its great you can hook this up to your flatscreen to watch your movies. That sucks if you can’t do that with the Nexus 7 I just ordered today :-/

    A seven inch tablet? I thought the Galaxy S5 was already going to be seven inches for a phone price.

    The camera sounds interesting. And it is great that it will come with Jelly Bean.

    Add a good rear facing camera, charge a bit more, and I’d be buying them for fieldwork in remote areas.
