All the talk over at Computex 2012 in Taipai has surrounded the army of new Windows 8 and Windows RT devices, and Acer is one of the OEM's showcasing their efforts. However, snuck in between the Windows devices, is the new Iconia Tab A110.
The A110 is a 7-inch Android tablet, running Android 4.0 over an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor. Nothing particularly out of the ordinary there then. An Acer representative at the show though, said that the company will be pushing the A110 as their main low-end device in Q3 this year. Price -- less than $200. If true, this is a quad-core, fully featured Android tablet for Kindle Fire money.
We've previously heard about the Nvidia Kai programme to bring low priced Tegra devices to market. While no-one would confirm this is to be one of those devices, it sure sounds possible.
Ice Cream Sandwich is barely touched on the A110, though it sounds like it suffers from the same poor viewing angles as its predecessor, the A100.
Also on display at the Acer booth, another new Ice Cream Sandwich tablet, the A210. Packing similar specs to the A110, the A210 comes with a 10.1-inch 1280x800 display. Additionally, both tablets pack 1GB of RAM, a microSD card slot and a solitary camera on the front face. The A110 will come with a HDMI out port with dual-display support, and the A210 has a full sized USB port along with the possibility of 3G data connectivity.
