Acer is showing off two new tablets with NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processors. They’re both expected to launch in the third quarter of 2012, but they’re on display at the Computex trade show in Taiwan this week.

Acer Iconia Tab A110

The successor to the Acer Iconia Tab A100 features a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage.

It also has a microSD card slot, and micro USB and micro HDMI ports. The tablet measures about 0.45 inches thick.

According to The Verge, the 7 inch tablet could cost less than $200 when it hits the market, suggesting that it’s based on NVIDIA’s new Kai reference design for inexpensive Tegra 3 tablets.

Acer’s new 10.1 inch tablet has a 1280 x 800 pixel display, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB to 16GB of storage. It has a USB 2.0 port, microSD card slot, and a front-facing camera, but no rear camera.

This appears to be a mid-range tablet, much like the current Acer Iconia Tab A200. But it the A210 will be a bit faster thanks to the quad-core Tegra 3 processor.

There’s no word on how much the A210 will cost when it launches, but I think it’s fair to assume it will be a bit more expensive than the A110, but cheaper than the upcoming Acer Iconia Tab A700 which is expected to have a similar processor but a high-definition 1920 x 1200 pixel display.

Acer’s new Android tablets will also probably be cheaper than the new Windows 8 tablets the company introduced this week. Those are expected to start at $799.

  1. The Fire and Nook were good tablets for the price when they came out — they might have limited features, but they are quality builds and were priced competitively when they were first released.

    But the tablet marketplace is moving fast. If the A110 sells for $199 (and it may have to compete with more established brands like Samsung) then, of course, the current Nook and Fire will seem overpriced. Unless the next gen tablets from Amazon and B&N have cameras, mics, HDMI, bluetooth, SD card slots, they’re not going to be able to price them at much more then $150. Alternatively, you might see them offering some kind of subscription model, where you commit to buying so many books/movies over the next two years.

  2. The A110 will definitely help convincing the ones (with limited budget) who were still on the fence regarding the purchase of a tablet.

    This is a real (unlike the Fire or Nook), good tablet for a very competetive price.
