Acer Iconia Tab A110 and A210 shown off with quad-core processors, Android 4.0Alex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
We've seen Windows 8 appear on several devices at Computex 2012, but the same can't be said for Android. That doesn't mean that there aren't any Android products being shown, though, as Acer has introduced a pair of new Ice Cream Sandwich-powered tablets. First up is the Iconia Tab A110, which is a 7-inch slate with a 1024x600 screen resolution and quad-core Tegra 3 processor. A front-facing camera, microSD slot and a gigabyte of RAM are also included. An Acer representative claimed that the A110 will be priced at under $200 when it launches in the third quarter.
Acer also revealed the Iconia Tab A210, the A110's bigger brother. Like the A110, the Iconia Tab A210 features a quad-core Tegra 3 chip, front camera, microSD slot, 1GB RAM and Android 4.0, but the similarities end when it comes to the display. The Iconia Tab A210 features a 10-inch 1024x800 screen, a bit of a bump from the A110's 7-inch display. A full-sized USB port is also included on the A210, which is said to be launching sometime in the third quarter.
Thanks to the inclusion of Tegra 3 and Android 4.0, both the Iconia Tab A110 and A210 look like respectable follow-ups to the Iconia Tab A100 and A200. If the Iconia Tab A110 does indeed debut with a price tag below $200, that means that it could be taking advantage of NVIDIA's Kai platform, which aims to help manufacturers bring quad-core Tegra 3 Android 4.0 tablets to market with $199 price tags. While we don't have a more concrete window on when the A110 and A210 will be coming other than the aforementioned Q3 window, we'll definitely be keeping an eye on these two devices to learn when they'll be making their arrival stateside. Have either the Iconia Tab A110 or A210 piqued your interest?
