Acer Iconia Tab A110 might make you second guess that Nexus 7 purchase – Maybe

A110_121

The Android space isn’t in short supply of 7 inch tablets today, but we wouldn’t go as far to say that there’s a large selection of good 7 inch tablets. There’s a small helping of 7 inchers that are actually worth forking over the cash for – the Nexus 7 being on the top of that list. Acer is looking to change that with its Iconia Tab A110, which could sway a couple of people away from the Nexus 7 with some extra feature many will like.

The Iconia Tab A110 rocks many of the specs you’d find in the in the Nexus 7, including the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 8 GB internal storage, 1GB of RAM, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Luckily, you’ll also find a micro HDMI port and a microSD card slot. The latter may indeed be the feature that could sway some away from the Nexus 7 the most, and coming in at $230, the Iconia Tab A110′s price is hard to beat.

Opting for Acer’s option isn’t all upgrades, though. Owners will more than likely have to wait longer for Android updates, and the 7 inch LCD display is a slightly lower resolution than what you’ll find on the Nexus 7 at 1024 x 600.

Oh yeah, we suppose you can also grab a Kindle Fire, but what’s the fun in that?
