TAIWANESE COMPUTER MAKER Acer has revealed today that its next tablet device, the 7in Iconia A110, will retail for £180 when it hits the UK market this Autumn.
The Iconia A110 tablet is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor and runs Google's latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system. Weighing 390g, it has a 2MP front-facing camera and features an HDMI port and a MicroSD slot that can handle up to 32GB of storage.
The device is yet another 7in tablet to compete with the Google Nexus tablet and the Amazon Kindle Fire HD, as manufacturers target those seeking a tablet smaller than Apple's 10in Ipad.
The low price will also see it compete head-to-head with these devices as firms appeal to those wanting a tablet device but are unwilling to pay the upwards of £300 that Apple charges.
Though it is yet to be confirmed by the Taiwanese firm, we expect that the Iconia A110 will have access to the Acer Cloud service that backs up all devices made by the firm free of charge for customers. µ
