Quad-core 7 inch Acer Iconia Tab A110 available online for just $229.99
the features you need. If you need the option of having a microSD card, the Acer will be your choice. If you need a screen where words can be easily read, the Asus built Google Nexus 7 should be your selection. If you need NFC capabilities, the Google Nexus 7 is your, uh, man. Whichever tablet you choose, you will be working with Android 4.1. The Google Nexus 7 is available at the Google Play Store and with the new 32GB model priced at $249, the 16GB unit has been cut in price to $199. Meanwhile, the Acer Iconia Tab A110 can be purchased online from Amazon. All you need to do is to click on the sourcelink.

Something missing in one is the other's gain!
Choices are getting harder and harder!!

not really the nexus 7 should be the obvious winner.
aside from having a higher ppi which is good for reading and viewing it runs stock sndroid giving better performance and it runs 4.1.1...or shall i say 4.2?

I do think so... I like to think that Nexus is the bigger one of course!! But Acer is not that far behind!!

HDMI isn't a problem as u can use a micro SD to HDMI adapter to connect to televisions and monitors. and 32gb is more than enough for most of us.

Are you sure? Cause I find it a bit confusing how to conect a microSD slot thad is not even present in the Nexus 7 to HDMI...
And if by chance you refer to the micro USB one, you need to have it MHL enabled to do that and the Nexus 7 doesn't have that (as far as I'm aware)
I have the same issue in my Nexus S and I couldn't find a way to connect it to the TV, if someone has done it, help would be appreciated.

Sorry, its Micro USB. and yes i go the facts wrong. although its displeasing to know that a Nexus tablet doesnt have MHL enabled port whereas some midrange android phone have em.

Google is by no means perfect, and not including MHL was a move to try to sell that horrible ball (I don't remember the name) to connect it to your TV. And yes, MHL is one of the things I really miss in the Nexus 7 and a reason to go for the ACER one...
As Nathan_ingx said, choices are harder.

HDMI is a non-issue after Android 4.2 drops, with wifi mirroring. About damn time.
9. TylerGrunter (Posts: 705; Member since: 16 Feb 2012)
You are right, but last time I checked one of the Wifi display adapters cost $50 or more, while a cable cost around 10. So at least is a nice to have.

Nexus is still better.
It will get official future Google Android updates faster than Acer.
I can forego the Micro SD card and HDMI out at this cost.
