Not even two weeks have passed since Nvidia announced its strategy for cheap tablets with quad core processors, and now it has already begun to introduce the first products developed after the new matrix, be it in the sample stage.
Among the hundreds, if not thousands, of new products launched at Computex 2012, without rolling out the red carpet, Acer presented at its stand two tablets called Iconia Tab A110 and Iconia Tab A210.
Iconia Tab A110 is a tablet scheduled for the third quarter of this year at the price of only $200. Running on Android 4.0, the tablet has a 7-inch screen and builds around an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core chip. The operating system comes preinstalled with almost no customization from Acer. An extremely positive detail is that in Quadrant, at the first run, the tablet almost managed to reach Transformer Prime performance levels.
Although it’s a bit thicker at 11.4 millimeters, and angles of vision of the panel are not great, considering that it attacks the same area of price as the Kindle Fire from Amazon, the price per performance ratio tends to be incredible.
Iconia Tab A210 has similar specifications with the A110, but the screen “jumps” from 7 to 10.1 inches, while the display resolution is equal to 1280 x 800. Scheduled for release around the same time, both tablets have 1GB of RAM, a front-facing camera, plus a microSD card slot. The A210 also includes a USB port and an optional 3G module, whereas the A110 is limited to HDMI.
