In the grand tradition of firing out press releases before trade shows have actually, y’know, started, Taiwanese manufacturer Acer has detailed its spanking new CES 2014 wares in black and white.
Martin scribbled about the Acer Liquid Z5 yesterday, and now it’s over to me to cover the Acer Iconia A1-830 and Iconia B1-720 tablets.
Diving straight into specs, the Acer Iconia A1-830 has a 7.9in IPS display (1024 x 768), a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Clovertrail+ processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, microSD compatibility, front and rear cameras, and Jelly Bean Android 4.2.1.
Acer Iconia A1-830 price is set at €169, with availability from this very quarter.
“People continue to demand more from their tablets, and we must stay ahead of what they need and want to do,” yells Hermann Eul, corporate VP and general manager for Intel’s Mobile and Comms Group.
“Acer has designed a tablet that does just that using our multi-core multi-threaded Intel Atom processor for Android. The new Acer Iconia A1-830 provides a smooth, seamless and responsive Android-based mobile experience for multitasking, web browsing and gaming. We’re excited to see another Intel-based Android tablet available for consumers.”
As for the Acer Iconia B1-720, specs include a 7in display, 1.3GHz dual-core processor, and 1GB of RAM. This guy is marginally more affordable, with Acer Iconia B1-720 price set at €129.
Expect more on the Acer Iconia A1-830 and Iconia B1-720 next week, including – hopefully – specific release dates for us in the UK.
