Acer guns for Nexus 7 with introduction of 7.9-inch Iconia A1
Acer is taking on the Google Nexus 7 by shipping a budget-ranged Android tablet with a marginally bigger screen. Housing a larger-than-normal 7.9-inch IPS display running at a resolution of 1024x768, the Iconia A1 follows on the design aesthetic provided with the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/284873==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/01/07/speculated.100.price.tag.in.fact.150/" rel='nofollow'>Iconia B1</a>, shown earlier this year, measures just 0.44-inches thick and weighs in at 0.90 pounds.<br />
<br />
Inside is a MediaTek quad-core processor running at 1.2GHz, and comes with options for 8GB or 16GB of storage, expandable by microSD. Connectivity is provided by Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi, with a 3G version expected in July, while the rear-facing 5-megapixel camera is capable of recording 1080p Full HD video. A front-facing webcam, micro-HDMI and microUSB 2.0 ports, and Acer's WakeApp feature to launch specific apps when the tablet is turned on is also included. <br />
<br />
Acer plans to sell the 16GB version in the US for $200 in June, while the 8GB model will sell for $170.
