No stranger to the tablet market, Acer is here again! The company announced that it is high time for them to release a new device that will spin the heads of their fans. Moreover, it will be running on Android OS, which ensures at least twice more people who will be interested in buying such tablet.
The name of the tablet is Iconia A1 and it offers great specifications such as 7.9” display set to 1024×768 of resolution. The aspect ratio is 4:3. Don’t rush to judge the manufacturer for this, because according to the designers, thanks to this ratio the tablet can be considered as leader when it comes to reading, gaming and internet browsing. Of course we will not forget to mention a couple of words about the “more important” characteristics – the processor is from MediaTek and it is quad-core clocked at 1.2GHz. Normal features also don’t lack – there is micro-HDMI and micro-USB ports, Bluetooth, GPS, etc. The rear-facing camera is 5MP while there is no official information regarding the front-facing shooter. Reportedly, there are going to be 2 versions of Iconia A1 – 8GB and 16GB that could be additionally extended via microSD card slot.
Set to the low-range tech market and considered as straight competitor to Nexus 7, Acer Iconia A1 will definitely attract the attention of future tablet buyers. Thanks to the above mentioned aspect ratio the gadget stands out from the crowd of most Android devices. The display size is more than enough when it comes to performing the usual things a tablet is used for, while the processor ensures smooth performance. Let’s just wait a couple of months until A1 hits the shelves and see whether or not it is going to be as good as expected. The supposed launch date is somewhere in the middle of June and the price – 200$.
