The Acer Iconia Tab A110 is coming to the UK on October 1st with a whole host of online retailers now selling the tablet for around £180. This pricepoint puts it in direct competition with Google's Nexus 7 and  Amazon's Kindle Fire HD.

 

So how it compare to its two major competitors ?

 

Well, firstly the Acer Iconia Tab A110 has a 7 inch touch-screen running at a resolution of 1024*600 pixels , which is an almost identical display to both the Kindle Fire HD and Google Nexus 7.

 

The Acer Iconia Tab A110 is powered by a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor running at 1.2 GHz , which is the exact same processor as Nexus 7 and is better than the Kindle Fire's dual-core 1.2 Ghz chipset. All three of the tablets come have 1GB of RAM, so there is nothing to choose between them in that sense.

 

The on-board memory of the Iconia Tab A110 comes in at 8GB, which is the same as the lowest priced Nexus 7 model (£159) , but less than the top 16GB model (£189). Meanwhile, the Kindle Fire HD comes in either 16 or 32GB versions priced at £159 and £199 respectively. However, Acer's Iconia Tab A110 supports microSD cards up to 32GB which gives it the highest potential memory capacity of all of the 3 devices.

 

Acer's Iconia Tab A110 has a 2 mega-pixel front-facing camera for video calling, while the Nexus 7 has a 1.2 mega-pixel camera and Amazon's Kindle Fire has a 1.3 mega-pixel snapper. So it's all much of a muchness when it comes to video calling !

 

The A110 runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich like Amazon's Kindle Fire HD, while the Nexus 7 was the first device to run on Jelly Bean.

 

In our minds the newer operating system is the defining factor that makes Google's tablet the best 7 inch affordable tablet on the market. However, we'll have to reserve final judgement until we get our hands on the Amazon Kindle Fire HD and Acer's Iconia Tab A110 . As soon as we do we'll be posting reviews of tablets so keep posted !
