Throwing its name into the pack of low priced 7 inch tablets, the Acer Iconia Tab A110 is available online for just $229.99 for the 8GB tablet with the quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 under the hood; the corners have to be cut somewhere to keep the price down and in this case it's the resolution of the screen at 1024 x 600...

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.

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.
