Acer seems to be very relaxed now that the Microsoft Surface pricing reports have been touting prices beyond $500 like we reported here.
The notebook maker initially was very upset with the idea that Microsoft could subsidize the Windows 8/RT tablets and sell them for less than $300, but now everything seems fine.
Therefore, Acer is now offering the new Iconia Tab A110 7” Tegra 3 tablet
for a high $293 (£180) in England.
Everybody expected that Acer’s gadget will be priced a bit cheaper than Google’s Nexus 7
, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Tegra 3 is a quad-core ARM
CPU built on ARM’s Cortex A9 architecture and the A110 tablet
has now been upgraded to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
It comes with 8 GB of integrated flash storage and also has a microSD card slot along with an HDMI output and a micro USB port.
