Electronics maker Acer has unveiled the new Iconia A1-830, a 7.9-inch Android tablet with a stylish design, vibrant IPS display, responsive performance and rich sound.
The Iconia A1-830 debuts at this year’s 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. It will be shown for the first time at Pepcom’s Digital Experience! media event on Monday, January 6, which highlights some of the hottest gadgets and technologies debuting this week.
“Our fundamental goal when creating the Acer Iconia A1-830 was to provide our customers with an optimized Android tablet that stands out from other devices,” said Jerry Kao, associate Vice President of Acer Mobile Consumer Business Unit.
“Consumers expect more than ever from value-oriented products, and the Acer Iconia A1-830 tablet delivers much more than tablets in this class with its vibrant IPS display, premium aluminum metal finish and great performance and sound.”
The tablet features a design with an aluminum rear cover and a metal mid-frame to add strength and rigidity to the device. This design provides additional protection for the 7.9-inch display (1024 x 768 resolution) with IPS technology. The IPS display offers crisp and accurate colors from viewing angles up to 178 degrees for an enhanced visual experience. The 4:3 aspect ratio provides a large viewing area for browsing websites and reading.
The Iconia A1-830 is powered by an Intel Atom (Clover Trail+) Z2560 1.6GHz processor and 1GB of onboard LPDDR2 SDRAM, so it delivers fluid and fast navigation through apps and websites, smooth video playback and better mobile gaming. The processor also contributes to the long 7.5-hour battery life.
“People continue to demand more from their tablets, and we must stay ahead of what they need and want to do,” said Hermann Eul, Corporate Vice President and General Manager for Intel’s Mobile and Communications Group.
“Acer has designed a tablet that does just that using our multi-core multi-threaded Intel Atom processor for Android. The new Acer Iconia A1-830 provides a smooth, seamless and responsive Android-based mobile experience for multitasking, web browsing and gaming. We’re excited to see another Intel-based Android tablet available for consumers.”
