Acer has been showing off a 7 inch tablet with a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor for a few months. Now the company has confirmed that the Acer Iconia Tab A110 is on the way, and it will ship with Google Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as its operating system.
There’s still no word on the exact price or release date, but earlier this year we’d heard that the tablet could sell for around $200 — and that was before Google introduced the Asus Nexus 7 tablet which sells for $199 and up.
If Acer officials want this 7 inch table to be competitive, it may have to offer an even better price. While Acer’s tablet has the same operating system and processor as the Asus/Google tablet, plus microSD and micro HDMI ports, it also has a lower resolution display.
The Nexus 7 has a 1280 x 800 pixel screen, while the Iconia Tab A110 has a 1024 x 600 pixel display.

hopefully they will have improved the screen since it was on display in june.. it had terrible viewing angles and not hd… Thats the only thing stopping me from snapping this up instantly!
At a guess, $199 at launch. They’re not going to sell it for $149 (the 8GB Acer A100 is still selling at $144 refurbished) and I suspect they think that selling it for $189 or $179 isn’t going to win them enough extra sales over a $199. Better to put 16GB in the device (double the Nexus) and pray…
Today has been launched also in Italy. Will be available from October for 249€. There are not full specs list, but i hope this price is for the 16Gb SKU.
