The A110 comes equipped with the NVIDIA(R)
 Tegra(TM) 3 quad-core
processor, delivering industry-leading performance and responsiveness
for running multiple apps, smooth HD video, fast web browsing and
console-like gaming. The tablet's NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor features a
unique Super 4-PLUS-1(TM) Quad Core CPU design with a fifth Battery
Saver Core, which handles less demanding activities, ultimately using
less power and improving battery life. The A110 supports long battery
life with smart power management providing up to 7.5 hours of battery
life(1). 
Offering superior expansion and connectivity, the Iconia Tab A110 has
a micro-USB 2.0 port for hooking up other devices, and a MicroSD slot
providing additional storage up to 32GB and easy file transfers. For
showcasing entertainment in a larger format, users can easily connect
