Google Nexus 7 vs Acer Iconia Tab A110

Computing giants are continuing to beef up the range of technological innovations and specs for their latest range of devices, in an attempt to emerge victorious in the ongoing tablet market battle.

The Acer Iconia Tab A110 is the latest to wade into this mix, with some arguing that the tablet’s makers may have done enough to see of competition from Google’s popular Nexus 7 tablet.

With the low-end Iconia Tab due for release in the UK in September, both manufacturers are gearing up for a head-to-head in the run-up to Christmas. So how do the two compare?

With a price tag of £179 and offering a quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, a 7-inch 1024×600 display, 8GB of internal storage and a front-facing camera, the Iconia Tab A110 is an impressive piece of kit.

The tablet comes in at £20 more than the £159 8GB Nexus 7, but does have an important trump card up its sleeve.

The addition of a microSD slot allows users to add an additional 32GB of storage, offering more value for money than the £199 16GB Nexus 7.

The use of the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS may be the only stumbling block for Acer Iconia Tab A110, as the Nexus 7 comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. But a Jelly Bean update has been confirmed for later this year.

One of the defining features that sets the Google Nexus 7 apart from the Acer Iconia Tab A110 is the better quality HD IPS screen.

The inclusion of the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS comes with a number of benefits including faster orientation changes, faster responses when switching between recent apps, and smoother and more consistent rendering across the system through vsync and triple buffering.

The 7-inch Nexus 7 comes also comes packed with a quad-core Tegra 3 processor with a 12-core GPU, which will ramp up the gaming experience, and 1GB of RAM.

With the Acer Iconia Tab A110 making its market debut next month, it will come down to a choice between more storage or a better screen and improved OS.
