Acer Iconia A1 has been announced at the right time considering that the market was desperately in need of a budget 8 inch tablet. The tablet should get a very good consumer response since it is reasonably priced. The tablet sports a 7.9 inch (1280 x 768 pixels) IPS display. It comes out of the the box with Android 4.2 (JellyBean). It also comes with a 5 MP primary camera and a 0.3 MP front facing secondary camera. The tablet is available in both WiFi only and WiFi and 3G versions. The main attraction is the 1.2 GHz Quadcore Mediatek processor which is impressive for a budget tablet. In addition to this, 1 GB of RAM is excellent at this price.
