    Interesting .Nice price point and format .

      You can find the Playbook at $150 everywhere IN STOCK, which means that people are waiting for the Playbook to drop to $99.

      The Acer tablet KILLS the Playbook at $200, and even at $150.

      As someone mentioned, this tablet has the specs of mid range phones, with bigger resolution, bigger screen, HDMI out and is about $200 less, yeah!

      If Acer could downsize this they coud have a competitor for the HTC One V selling now at $175. Acer could do it at $200 with 4″ or a 3.7″ at $125 and could sell millions!

    Why are they able to release tablets with these types of specs but a comparable phone is $200 to $300 more?

      Am guessing because it’s simpler/cheaper producing a WiFi only tablet .No cell radio/licensing etc ….

      Size.
      Same reason why 40″ tv can cost the same as a smartphone.
      Or computers with higher specs with cost same as smartphones.

    Not bad, but the screen resolution is somewhat low for a future device.

    It may be just wifi but most phones these days can hotspot

      I read that a lot of android tabs don’t do ad hoc wifi connections tho unless they’ve been rooted

    2 problems with this device. First, it’s Acer. Second, it’s Android.

      First selling point for me is its not apple, so… second, its not OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive, third, I CAN DO WHAT I WANT WITH IT AND NOBODY (apple) CAN TELL ME HOW TO USE IT.

    I think that’s a really good price point for anyone who wants to pick up a tablet. A no frills tablet for $200, you can’t go wrong. If it’s a good product, it’s a good product. Fanboys, stay out.

    Just as important as price and specs is the state of the bootloader, and whether or not it’s unlockable.

    Too bad they didn’t put in real GPS. Asus can kick Garmin and Tomtom in the nuts if they did that. $200 3.5″ GPS or $200 7″ GPS…

    Smart by Google and their partners. Realize that iPad and Windows 8 are going to eat their f’n lunch in the mid to high end and that they can’t compete. Why get a Google tablet for >$500 when you can get an iPad or if you value the stuff that Android does better than the iPad get a Windows 8 device.

    Try to kill Amazon in the low end before they get too much traction. Good strategy.

    i hope this acer a110 will have a usb or microusb port

  • J

    I hope they don’t skimp too much on battery life. I have a feeling the NEXUS7 will not show up in Canada, so the A110 is just what i’ve been looking for! Thanks for the info, i can’t wait to hear more details

    i heard the 7inch a110 will be 1024×600 & a 10inch a210 will be 720p. I hope the a110 will be 720p with ips & gorilla glass
