The company today announced the Iconia Tab A110, a lightweight pocket-size tablet with a 1,024x600-pixel-resolution 7-inch multitouch screen. This is in a way the mini version of the recently reviewed 10.1-ich Iconia Tab A700, sharing the same Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor and 1GB of system memory. The new tablet, however, will run the latest version of the Android operating system, version 4.1 aka Jelly Bean.
Acer says the new Iconia Tab A110 will offer up to 7.5 hours of battery life thanks to its Super 4-Plus-1 Quad Core CPU, which has a fifth Battery Saver Core assigned to handle less demanding activities. The tablet weighs just .86 pound and is just half an inch thick.
For connections, the new tablet has Micro-USB 2.0 port for hooking up other devices, and a microSD slot that can host storage cards of up to 32GB to expand its rather limited built-in 8GB of internal storage. On top of that it also features a Micro-HDMI output with dual display support in case you want to connect it to a large display screen, such as an HDTV.
According to Acer, the Iconia Tab A110 comes with a 2-megapixel front-facing Webcam and Bluetooth 3.0 to support wireless devices such as printers, keyboards, headsets, and speakers.
The Iconia Tab A110 is slated to be available on October 30 for $229.99. Don't forget to check back for our full review.
