    Acer has just unveiled a couple of new entries into the tablet market during Computex. One of them could be a real breakthrough for Android tablets. First, we will share the less revolutionary product. This is one we have heard hyped in the past: the Iconia Tab A210. This one is designed to be a mid-range product, although details on pricing are scarce. Here are the specs on this one:
    • Front camera
    • Quad-core Tegra 3 processor
    • 10.1" 1280x800 display
    • USB 2.0 port
    • microSD slot
    • 3620mAh battery
    • 8GB and 16GB versions
    This next one is the more interesting of the two. It is the Iconia A110, and what makes it unique is its pricing. This one is definitely geared toward the budget-friendly crowd, but you wouldn't think so by looking at the processor in it. This little 7-inch tablet also has the Tegra 3 quad-core chip in it, yet rumors suggest they are pricing this tablet at just $199.99. Could this be one of the first of the NVIDIA Kai Tegra 3 configurations? It seems likely, and it seems like this tablet is a no brainer when you compare it to the other tablets in this price range. Here is its spec breakdown:
    • The 7" display with 1024x600 resolution
    • 1GB RAM
    • Tegra 3 processor
    • 8GB on-board storage (expandable via microSD)
    • microUSB and micro-HDMI ports
    Could this be one of the first of an onslaught of inexpensive tablet devices? Android quickly rose to the top of the heap with smartphones, but it has been a bit slower for them to get competitive with Apple in the tablet market. It seems the "little android that could" just keeps on trucking forward, and eventually just might topple the mighty fruit, even in its tablet-dominating fortress.

    I wonder how it will match up with the Asus/Google product coming out. I'm going to have to hold off on my 7" purchase until they are out.

    I have never had a lot of experience with Acer, but when I held a friends Acer tab, it literally flexed in my hand, I think it was more how he handed it to me, and also I'm used to moto build quality...

    I'd like to get some hands on with one of these. It could've been a fluke..

    DROID RAZR MAXXIMIZED!!!! PREPARE TO BE VANQUISHED!!!
