While we’re testing the Iconia Tab A200, its sister is preparing to make its way to the USA. I’m talking about the Acer Iconia Tab A210, that just hit the FCC, after being showcased at Computex 2012 last month with a Q3 availability. This 10 inch Android slate is now one step closer to release, having passed the FCC step.

The A210 is meant as a low to midrange tablet model, without a rear camera, just like the A200. Also, most of the specs are pretty much the same, including a 10.1 inch 1280 x 800 pixel screen, a USB 2.0 port and microSD slot just like the predecessor, a 3,620 mAh battery and 8/16GB of storage. I’m totally unimpressed by the battery knowing that Motorola has a phone with a 3300 mAh battery and most 7 inch tablets have 4000 mAh batteries or so…

Anyway, there’s a quad core chip here to drain that battery and I’m extremely curios to learn about battery life of this product, considering the specs. If they price it anywhere above $250, it’s a very big mistake, but anywhere lower than that we may have an interesting product…

    Ok, this is quad-core “for the masses”, I guess. If it’s a cheap product, this is direct competition to Nexus 7. It figures, since Acer and Asus are rivals….
