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 […]

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...

Acer's Iconia A1-830 is an affordable Android tablet that packs an 8-inch screen in an attractive design, but don't expect blazing performance.

Affordable for 8-inch tablet; Sleek design; Handy Acer Cloud software

Dim display; Underwhelming speakers; Below-average battery life; Older version of Android

For $179, the Iconia A1-830 is an affordable tablet that offers a fairly big screen for a low price. We also like the metal back, which gives this slate a sturdier feel than some other low-cost slates. Unfortunately, the somewhat dim screen and...

Acer Iconia A1-830 review

 

The iPad Mini is a popular tablet for plenty of reasons, including its 7.9-inch, 4:3 display (which is great for reading books and magazines), and its attractive aluminum and glass shell.

Attractive, iPad-aping design ; IPS screen ; MicroSD card slot

Short battery life ; Loaded with bloatware ; Less stable than other budget tablets ; Low-resolution screen

Acer’s latest budget tablet is attractive if you crave that iPad look, but underneath, it’s underpowered and overloaded with pre-installed apps.

Functional budget slab with a surprising amount on offer

Acer Iconia A1-830 Android tablet review

 

Acer has made a great 7.9in tablet, but it lingers behind its established rivals.

Sub-$250 price ; Aluminum rear casing ; 2MP front cam with face detection

Low resolution screen

Acer has made a decent tablet with the A1-830. It looks like an Apple iPad Mini — which is a good looking tablet — and it will easily perform most tasks without any trouble. Furthermore, the $249 price is attractive.

Hands-on at CES 2014: A budget Android tablet with the same screen size as an iPad mini

People expecting the Acer Iconia A1-830 to be a cheap iPad mini will likely be disappointed. It looks like an iPad mini, but the Android OS means it's nothing like an Apple tablet. It's also not particularly remarkable in terms of the specs it offers,...

Acer Iconia A1-830 Android tablet review

 

Acer's Iconia tablet is looking to take on Google's Nexus 7 and Apple's iPad Mini for its stake of the low-end tablet market. The 7.9in tablet packs an Intel CPU, a 5MP camera and a sub-$250 price that should pique people's interest.

Good for Acer

 

Get an Apple, Samsung, Pipo, or whatever. But this fills my needs inexpensively.

Exsquid choice of what to include in a pad in this price range. Using the iPad Mini form factor... no problem finding a case but I think there was more to it than that. Acer has set a standard for the low cost iPad mini sorta gizmo. I haven't found a...

Can't get the sound up loud on the extenal speakers, but then again I like hard rock

My first Tablet!

 

I'm sure there is better tablets on the market at the same price, but I got this for free and it's not a gift I would just toss aside or give away. I actually use this every single day. I normally have it at my computer so I can multitask.

Android OS - Lot's of free software on the market ; Great display and sound ; Included for FREE with many devices on Newegg.com ; Plays all of my games

Came with a lot of bloatware. Oh my lord ; Call quality isn't the best but it's a tablet, not a phone
