Acer Iconia A100 with Jelly Bean coming to US and Canada on Oct 30

The budget tablet market is growing quickly. People are finding ways to use the utilize the tablet even though the need is really not there. With manufacturers such as Google, Amazon, and Apple (very soon) trying to rule the budget tablet market with really affordable, promising, and tempting offering, and constantly upgrading them.

Acer was not able to control its urges to enter this market of budget tablets. So here it is with new Acer Iconia Tab A110. The tablet is aptly priced for a budget tablet, but the tablet does not feature the specs featured on those other budget friendly tablets. Tech Crunch describes the tablet as follows:

The company has priced and dated its Iconia Tab A110, And Android Jelly Bean powered-tablet with an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 8GB of internal storage and a microSD slot for up to 32GB of additional expansion.

The tablet is in line with what you’d likely expect from a budget offering, so there’s no rear-facing camera, but there is a front-facing one for web chat applications. The new Iconia also claims up to 7.5 hours of battery life thanks to a Battery Saver Core meant to tackle less demanding processor requirements, leaving the powerful Tegra 3 out of it things. Portability is also key, so the A110 is only 0.86 lbs, and under half-an-inch thick. The screen resolution on the A110 is 1024×600, and the tablet boasts 1GB of RAM. Wireless connections include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Now it is to see how the company will survive in the market. Google’s Nexus 7 is for sure slimmer and features a lot better specs than the Acer Iconia Tab A110, and the Kindle Fire is attractive for a completely different class of people. Apple is also outing its new tablet next Tuesday, and though it is not expected to be as cheap as these other tablets.
