According to some press shots of the upcoming Acer Iconia Tab A110 that appeared on UK retailer Ebuyer’s website, the tablet could be launching with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean instead of 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. When initially announced, Asus said that tablet would launch with ICS.
If this is the case, this would make the Iconia Tab A110 the first tablet from a major manufacturer (outside of the Nexus 7) to launch with Jelly Bean. Although the Iconia Tab A110 will cost slightly more than the Nexus 7 (£179.99 vs. £159.99), it will feature a microSD card slot and HDMI out, two features that the Nexus 7 is currently lacking.
So, would you be willing to spend a few more bucks to get a 7-inch tablet with Jelly Bean, microSD card slot, and HDMI out? Or would you rather spend less, get the Nexus 7 with no microSD card slot, no HDMI out, but with faster updates?
Tough choice. Let us know what you would do!
