Taiwanese manufacturer Acer plans to sell a whopping seven million Android tablets this year, and the latest in its arsenal has been revealed.
I speak of the terribly named Acer Iconia A1-810, a 7.9in tablet with a price tag of €199 (£170) – a whole £100 less than the similarly sized iPad mini.
Somewhat strangely, the manufacturer has yet to give the Acer Iconia A1-810 an official launch.
Acer Iconia A1-810 specs include a 7.9in display (1024 x 768), quad-core MediaTek MT8125 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage (with microSD), a 5MP rear camera, and Jelly Bean (Android 4.2).
On the connectivity side of things, the Acer Iconia A1-810 offers Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and an HDMI port, while the tablet weighs 460g – a fair bit heavier than the 308g iPad mini.
There’s no word on a UK release for the Acer Iconia A1-810 just yet, but it doesn’t seem like too much of a stretch to imagine it leaping over the Channel.
