    With all the new tech launches that have been coming down the pipe lately it's easy to forget that there are still quite a few other manufacturers out there that can get competitive when they want to. Today we have a perfect example of this with the Acer Iconia A110 Tablet that just launched online for just $229.99. Here's a spec breakdown to help you make an informed decision:
    • 7-inch display with 1024x 600 and a 170ppi pixel density (both are less than the Nexus 7)
    • Quad-core 1.2GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and 416MHz ULP GeForce GPU
    • 1GB of RAM
    • A microSD slot for expandable storage (missing from the Google Nexus 7)
    • HDMI out slot, (also missing from the Google Nexus 7)
    • Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich (of course the Nexus 7 has Jelly Bean)
    It looks like the main reasons to consider the Iconia A110 over the Nexus 7 is if you really need that microSD port and/or HDMI port (or if you are just a huge Acer fan, of course!). Regardless. it's nice to see that there are more high quality tablets hitting the market at a competitive price to help put pressure across the board. Here's a link to Amazon below where you can grab yours.

    Well as much as the Nexus 10 screen resolution was climbing toward overkill, this is leaning towards underwhelming. Seriously, I don't think that resolution is going to cut it, at least for us enthusiasts. Well Joe public won't know the difference and it will jut be confirmation to them that Android tablets are junk that don't look good compared to iPads *sigh*
