Acer has this morning announced a new 7-inch tablet powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Google’s latest Android release. It’s called the Iconia Tab A110, and Acer promises it’s “a tablet that you can easily hold in one hand and still lets you enjoy web browsing, multimedia, or even work if you need to.”
As you might expect, the A110 is taking aim at the Google Nexus 7. It’s powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, and 1GB of RAM. There’s a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, but no front-facing one, and 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded by up to 32GB with a microSD card.
The tablet’s 7-inch LCM (liquid crystal monitor) display boasts a 1024 x 600 resolution, which is kept alive by a 3,420 mAh battery. Acer claims the battery can last up to 240 hours in standby, or up to 7.5 hours when watching video, on a single charge. The A110 also sports a HDMI and a microUSB 2.0 port.
Acer hasn’t announced a launch day or pricing for the United States yet, but it has confirmed that the device will sell for £179.99 (approx. $292) in the United Kingdom this fall.
