We’ve heard about the Acer Iconia Tab A110, a seven-inch Nexus 7 competitor, featuring a seven-inch display with 1024 x 600 resolution, Nvidia Tegra 3 SoC, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. The resolution is still lower than the one on the ASUS-made Nexus 7 but at the time of the initial report the price was rumored to be below $200.
Sadly, that is not the case. The small tablet will be available in the US and Canada starting October 30 for prices “beginning at $229.99” (US and Canada). With a smaller resolution than the Nexus 7, the Iconia Tab A110 does sport a microSD expansion slot which is missing from Google’s Nexus offering. There’s also a microHDMI port for display mirroring. Are these specs enough to make the tablet a real Nexus 7 competitor?
