The great price of the Nexus 7 is largely due to the Platform nVidia Kai that, saving on some components and assembling a version slightly lower clocked Tegra 3, able to contain production costs.
But we know that in addition to the Google tablet Asus-there’s another one in the pipeline that has one: the Iconia Tab A110.
Acer’s tablet, presented last June, will be available at timelesstablets.com in late September to 179£, about €227.
This is always a 7 inch tablet with Tegra 3, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB memory expandable via microSD, however. Needless to say, this possibility alone is worth the cost greater than the Nexus 7 from 8 GB, because the solution of Acer could easily get 40 GB of memory with a microSD 32 GB.
On the other hand the Iconia Tab A100 will be marketed with Ice Cream Sandwich and then upgraded to Jelly Bean, and is needless to reiterate how in terms of updates is unable to compete with a Nexus.
At the end of the day, so the choice is between higher storage or be sure to always have the latest version of Android: users will judge.
