Acer outs £180 Iconia Tab A110 Android tablet

The new tablet, which has disadvantages and advantages when compared with the Google Nexus 7, is clearly priced as a reaction to that and other recent devices - the last Acer seven-incher launched at £300.

Acer has revealed its latest seven-inch Android tablet, the Jelly Bean-equipped Iconia Tab A110.

The A110 succeeds last year's A100 , which cost around £300 when it launched. However, the intervening period has seen the release of several key low-cost tablets in the same form factor, such as the Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire , and the A110 is accordingly priced at £179.99.

Internally, the A110 is similar to the Nexus 7, as it features a quad-core Tegra 3 processor. However, it has both advantages and disadvantages when compared to that device.

The Nexus 7, like the new 7-inch Kindle Fire, has a screen resolution of 1280x800 pixels. The Iconia Tab A110 has just 1024x600 pixels.

The "less-than-390g" Acer tablet wins out, though, when it comes to storage. Neither the Amazon device nor the Google tablet have a slot for a microSD card, but the A110 does, allowing the addition of 32GB at low cost.

According to the eBuyer website, where the A110 is now available for pre-order, the first units are expected on 1 October.
