Iconia Tab A210
Your first clue that the A210 is destined to be a low-to-mid range tablet? It's missing a rear-facing camera, just like the A200. Indeed, most of the other specs appear to remain the same: this has a 10.1-inch (1280 x 800), which we've been led to believe is not IPS (that's fine, though, since we've generally been pleased with the viewing angles on Acer's 10-inch tablets). There's still a USB 2.0 port and microSD slot, just like on the previous model. The battery capacity has held steady at 3,620mAh. As for storage, the on-site spec sheet listed 8GB and 16GB models. The big difference between this and the last-gen model, it seems, is that this packs a quad-core, not dual-core chip.
All told, this feels like a seasonal spec bump to us, though Acer also took the opportunity to tweak the design, trading in that soft-touch finish for a harder plastic back with a fine dot pattern. The model we saw was white -- it's unclear if you'll have more choices beyond that.
Iconia Tab A110
Acer must've caught a lot of flack for the A100's soft design, because the aesthetic here is a lot more gender-neutral. Which is to say, it's pretty plain-Jane, with a matte, scratch- and finger-print resistant gray back. We can only guess the A110 is going to be as aggressively priced as its predecessor, because anyone who buys this will have to make a few compromises on design: the chassis is fairly chunky, at 11.4mm thick, and the bezel is wide. The 7-inch, 1024 x 600 display also doesn't offer great viewing angles.
Inside, you'll find that Tegra 3 processor, of course, coupled with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of built-in storage (expandable via microSD). If you peek our hands-on video you can see the performance in this early build is on par with what you'd expect from a mid-tier device, which we expect this is. Naturally, there's no full-size USB port on this smaller model, though you will find run-of-the-mill micro-HDMI and micro-USB connectors.
That's all we know for the time being, but we'll be sure to keep you posted with more details as we learn them. For now, enjoy our hands-on photos and if you have a few minutes, two walk-through videos.
