Security for virtualized datacentres

Extreme PC Week

Acer unveiled the Iconia Tab A110 at Computex in Taipei this week - a quad-core tablet that should be available for £130. Wowzers.

The Acer Iconia Tab A110 - set to replace the Iconia Tab A100 - features a 7in display with a resolution of 1024 x 600.

A100 to get the Quad-core treatment

The slate boasts an Nvidia quad-core Tegra 3 processor running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, affirming Nvidia's earlier claims that such budget Tegra 3 slates would be available this summer.

At such a low price point, the Iconia Tab A110 can compete with Amazon's Kindle Fire, although the impact on battery life of having that quad-core CPU remains to be seen.

Other specs include 1GB of Ram, 8GB of internal storage, a front-facing camera and micro HDMI, USB and SD card slots.

The Acer Iconia Tab A110 is expected to hit shelves in Q3 2012 for roughly £130. Slabtastic. ®
