Acer continues quad core price war with £234 Iconia A210 tablet

Saveonlaptops and a number of other UK retailers have put the Acer Iconia A210 tablet on sale for a mere £234, by far the cheapest quad core large screen tablet on the market.

The tablet, which was unveiled in June 2012, comes with a 10in 1,280 x 800 pixels capacitive display, 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, a 2-megapixel front facing sensor, Bluetooth and that quad core system on chip from Nvidia, the Tegra 3, clocked at 1.2GHz.

The device weighs 710g – heavier than comparable Android tablets - and comes with GPS plus a 3,260mAh battery. As expected the Iconia A210 runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The quad core rival Google Nexus 7 tablet comes with almost the same specification, but with a couple of key differences. It has a smaller screen (7in vs 10in), costs less (£199 vs £234), has vanilla Jelly Bean OS and doesn’t come with a microSD card slot or a full HD webcam.
