Acer Iconia A1: 7.9-inch Android tablet (hands-on)- Review, Images and Price in dollars

The earliest thing you Have to note that when picking up the Acer Iconia A1 its aspect ratio is 4:3 , which gives it a thick feel, as compared to the 16:9 screen of the Nexus. Returning to 4:3 gives it a a little dated and exciting look, and we're not sure of the benefit, as it may be less favorable for movie watching and web browsing.

As of frontage, you'd be pushed identifying the Acer from any other small-form budget tablet, and there's not anything here to distinguish it from the horde of challenging tablets. It's visually plain, bordering on white label. The white rear clearly goes behind The Acer's present fashion – including a plasticky end that borders on feeling contemptible.
The budget 7-inch Android tablet landscape's success really crowded, but that's not finishes The Acer. The Latest announcement of Acer Iconia A1 on $169, by highlighting this category's role as the "Netbook-of-the-moment," but that's no longer a inimitable selling point: a lot of other same kind of tablets have cheap prices such as, the HP Slate 7, Lenovo IdeaTab A6000, and even the Kindle Fire.
The Iconia A1 has a solid-feeling and logically attractive if broad plastic design (0.44 inch, weighing 0.9 pound), with a white back. It's suggestive of the Nexus 7, other than the dissimilarity here is a 7.9-inch, 4:3 IPS display (1,024x 768 pixels), exactly same size and resolution as the display on the iPad Mini. This should be a big help with PDFs and e-reading, as it's extra like the dimensions of a piece of paper.
A quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, and a little amount of either 8GB or 16GB onboard storage fits the bill for "budget," except there are some respectable features. The Iconia A1 runs Android Jelly Bean 4.2, and has a in-built 3G choice in addition to b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. Front- and rear-facing cameras shoot at 0.3 megapixel (640x480, 30 frames-per-second video) and 5 megapixels (1080p 30fps video), respectively. An expandable microSD slot maintain up to an extra 32GB of memory. There are Micro-USB and HDMI ports. Gyroscope and GPS are included.
Acer has opted for a stock Android UI, and has resist the enticement to interfere with the OS. The corporation has a erratic track record with its own interfaces, and the Acer Iconia A1 is supremely free from breathless overlays and customizations.
There's nothing ground breaking with the cameras either, and Acer has opted for a 5 megapixel rear-facing snapper which can capture 1080p video at 30fps.
Acer's boasting a 7-hour battery life, which would be extraordinary for such a budget device, which we will fully test when the tablet comes out in the ending of May.

The Acer Iconia A1-810 with 16GB of memory will be available in June for $199, or $169 for the 8GB version. Based on its violent feature set and fuller screen, it could value some thought in a crowded field.
Price : $169
