If you’ve been pondering to snap a mini tablet — despite you have a number of choices, including Apple’s iPad mini, Google-bound Nexus 7 and Galaxy Note 8.0 — then you might want to wait a little longer, as Taiwan-based Acer Electronics might have a new player in the arena, in the form of Iconia A1-810.
The Android 4.2 Jelly Bean-flavored tablet has been caught listing over French’s online retailer Rue Du Commerce. Thankfully, MiniMachines caught the page before someone scrubbed it clean. The website’s listing suggested that Acer’s unannounced Iconia A1-810 will be featuring jaw-dropping specs, including a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU by MediaTek, coupled with 1GB RAM. The IPS display with 1024 x 768 pixel resolution puts the slate right in league with Apple’s iPad mini, but it also means a lower pixel density than the Google’s Nexus 7 tab. However, Iconia A1810’s biggest selling point might be its price point, at €199, or about $259, if French retailer’s listing was something to go by.
You’ll also find WiFi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS radios inside, along with a 3,250 mAh battery — which is quite a bit smaller than its competitors (despite its 10.5mm thick, 430g body being quite a bit larger). Other specs on the 7.9-inch slab include a 5MP shooter, plus a VGA front-facer. A June time-frame is expected for shipping.
What do you guys think of this upcoming Acer’s behemoth? Worth waiting?
