Acer's entry into the increasingly popular (and affordable) 7-inch tablet category is the Iconia Tab A110, a lightweight and pocket-sized slate that will be available to purchase in the U.S. on October 30, 2012. The A110 is ready to rock with an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1024x600 capacitive touchscreen display, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which is the same version of Android found on Google's Nexus 7 device.
At just 0.86 pounds and less than half an inch thin, Acer claims the A110 is easy to hold in one hand for hours on end. Speaking of which, Acer rates the battery life at up to 7.5 hours, though obviously that will depend on your usage habits. Playing games, for example, will tax the Tegra 3 chip and shorten battery life, while browsing the Web or flipping through photos aren't quite as taxing.
The A110 ships with 8GB of internal storage and has a microSD card slot for additional storage up to 32GB. There's also a micro-USB 2.0 port and micro-HDMI output with dual-display support. Other features include 1GB of RAM, Bluetooth 3.0, and a 2MP front-facing camera.
MSRP for the Iconia Tab A110 has been set at $230.
