Along with the Acer Aspire P3 which we talked about in the last post, Acer had also announced a bunch of other devices at its New York even held earlier this week. We will talk about the rest of them in subsequent posts. Amongst them was the Acer Iconia A1 which happens to be a 7. 9 inch Android JellyBean toting tablet that Acer says is targeted at “modern day explorers, adventurers, digital freaks and mobile executives.” Whatever that means!
Let’s now quickly delve in to the features of the tablet. Or rather, watch our hands on video of the same, That’s easier, right? Anyway, here we go
If you are too bored to watch the video and prefer reading it all up, here’s what the new 7.9 inch tablet from Acer has on offer. To start with, it is powered by a MediaTek quad-core processor that is clocked at a cool 1.2GHz. It gets an IPS display panel that sports a 1024 × 768 pixel resolution. By now, you might have also noticed that it sports a 4:3 aspect ratio which Acer says is great for web browsing and reading. (I love how they omit the video watching bit here). The Iconia A1 barely weighs 0.90 pounds and measures just 0:44 inches across. And yes, there is support for a bunch of location based services and apps thanks to the onboard GPS. Connectivity wise, the A1 gets Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n) as well as Bluetooth 4.0 – and not to mention micro USB support.
The device also gets a 5MP rear-facing camera that can also capture videos in full HD at a decent 30 fps. For all you video calling freaks, there is a front facing camera on the device as well. The Acer Iconia A1 would be available in 8GB or 16GB versions and would also sport the ability to add even more memory using micro SD cards.
The Iconia A1-810 with 16GB capacity will be available in June at a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $ 199.99. Cool, eh?
