Acer Iconia A1 Hands On Review


Acer didn't just show two Windows 8 machines today, the Aspire R7 and the Aspire P3, but they also took a moment to give its new Android tablet, the Iconia A1, its own moment in the sun. The Acer Iconia A1 features a 7.9-inch display with IPS...

Acer will be making two versions of the Iconia A1 available: an 8GB and 16GB version, which will retail for $169 and $199, respectively. At this point, there’s no specific release date for the Android tablet, but an Acer representative says the Iconia...

Hands on: Acer Iconia A1 steps up to bat against the iPad Mini


The third star of today's global Acer press conference is the Iconia A1 Android tablet. This 8-inch slate is clearly aimed in the iPad Mini's direction and probably aspires to edge out the Nexus 7 as well. The A1 isn't as much of a standout as the...

Inexpensive ($170);Android Jelly Bean;Small and light

Somewhat cheap construction;4:3 aspect ratio may be odd for some apps;No standout features

In the end, the Acer Iconia A1 is an average Android tablet and there’s nothing wrong with that as long as the price stays commensurate with the experience. At $170 the value proposition is just right. And who knows, the A1 may surprise us when we get...

Acer Iconia A1: $169 7.9-inch Android tablet


The budget 7-inch Android tablet landscape's getting awfully crowded, but that's not stopping Acer. The newly announced Acer Iconia A1 starts at $169, underlining this category's role as the "Netbook-of-the-moment," but that's no longer a unique...

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 aggressive feature set and fuller screen, it could merit some consideration in a crowded field.

Acer Iconia A1 hands-on


Cheap Android tablets seem to be all the rage nowadays, as we've witnessed just the past recent holiday season. From the mighty Google Nexus 7, to other rival offerings such as the Amazon Kindle Fire HD and NOOK TABLET, manufacturers are ready to give...

Obviously, this isn’t trying to compete with the big boys in the Android tablet market, but rather, it’s aiming to give some of those budget tablets a good run for their money. Out of everything, we have to give some props to Acer for putting a $170...

Budget Android tablet looks solid but unexceptional

4:3 screen ; Good connectivity ; Strong battery

Better-spec tablets are cheaper ; No word on newer Android ; Screen poor

Acer Iconia A1 pictures and hands-on


Acer has added to its Iconia tablet line with the introduction of the A1, a 7.9-inch LED-backlit IPC display device, and Pocket-lint had a play with the soap-bar-shaped tablet at Acer's global product launch in New York city.

Overall this is a solid spec model for the price point - the near-7-inch tablet space continues to expand and it's good to see more options out there, although we don't feel that this Iconia has much wow factor.

The best 4:3 Android tablet for those on a budget, but the Nexus 7 is still superior

Acer Iconia A1 review


The A1 isn't what you would describe as a good-looking tablet, but it's passable. It measures in with dimensions of 208.7x145.7x11.1mm and weighs 410g, what that means in real-world terms is that it isn't the lightest or thinnest, but it's still...

The budget Android tablet market is a brilliant arms race. The Acer Iconia A1 is right in the mix as one of the best tablets in terms of value for money. If you're looking for something to surf the web, use social networks and watch videos on the A1...

Acer Iconia A1


A £150 tablet that melds the design of the iPad mini with the Nexus 7's low cost.

and we can’t see it eclipsingAsus’s budget Fonepad and Nexus 7, but it is a solid budget tablet.

Acer Iconia A1


A not so small Android Tablet that is advertised as useable in one hand. Certainly for those with smaller hands this maybe a slight problem. It is however a near 8inch screen and means normal web pages display without any problems.

It is 20x14x1cm and weights 372grams. The screen surrounds are creamy grey and the back is silver. The viewable screen is 16x12cm which gives the notional diagonal imperial measurement of 7.8inches. Unfortunately the screen itself is rather reflective,...
