Acer Iconia A110 is a 200 quadcore ICS tablet

first_imgNvidia mused about sub-$200 quad-core tablets a few months ago, and more recently said that these Kai tablets were very much real. While the as-yet-unconfirmed Nexus Tablet has been mentioned as sporting four cores at such a price point, Acer has beaten Google and Asus to the punch with the Iconia A110.The 7-inch tablet features an Nvidia Tegra 3 SoC and it’s set to go on sale some time in the next couple of months. Acer hasn’t set a price in stone yet, but they are saying that it will definitely be less than $200.Acer hasn’t offered up much in the way of specs for the Iconia A110 yet, but it’s possible that the hardware will still be tweaked slightly before launch day anyway. The device on display at Computex features 1GB of RAM, 1024 x 600 resolution, 8GB of internal storage, a front-facing camera only, HDMI output and dual-display support, and microSD expansion.The tablet is also shipping with a nearly plain-vanilla version of Android 4.0 — no TouchWiz or Sense-style UI overlays here. The Iconia A110 is also said to benchmark fairly well, and it certainly seems like a good buy. You’re getting two more cores than you would if you picked up a Kindle Fire, after all.All in all, the A110 looks like a modest but welcome update for Acer’s previous 7-incher, the Iconia Tab A100. While the A100 did offer a rear-facing camera, its disappearance isn’t a huge loss. Using a half-kilogram, 8-inch-wide device isn’t a great way to take snapshots anyway, and it’s an excellent trade for double the processing capacity.More at The Vergelast_img read more
