Acer Iconia A1-810 7.9in tablet selling for €199

Acer Iconia A1-810 7.9in tablet selling for €199Taiwanese 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.

In the meantime, it’s been spotted by French site minimachines.net over on RueduCommerce, which is taking pre-orders for €199.

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.

"quad-core MediaTek MT8125 processor"

What the flip is this processor? How does it compare to the Tegra 3?

Following the rediculous announcement of the Note 8 price I am slightly surprised that Android/Google hasnt yet been able to step up and offer a good alternative to the 7.9" screen iPad mini (because I think several people like myself actually prefer the 7.9" to the slightly squashed 7" format), this seems slightly heavy with an odd processor?

MediaTek MT8125 = Budget ARM Cortex A9 clocked at 1.2 GHz

I wouldn't mind the additional weight compared to the iPad Mini. The Mini kind of spooked me - it felt to insubstantial; fragile. But that is personal preference.

Other than that? This will sell 5x before the price goes to £99... to never be seen again.

I wonder how popular the A110 was? I remever it was priced at £199 to compete with the Nexus 7 but then got a £50 cashback offer and flew off the shelves (now seems out of stock on ebuyer perminently).

There's definalty a strong market sub £150
