Acer Iconia A3 tablet takes on Nexus 7
I'm Luke Westaway for CNET here at the IFA tech trade show in Berlin.
We're taking a look at this.
It's the Acer Iconia A3 tablet.
So, let's go over the basics.
This tablet looks like a lot that we've seen before.
It's got a 10.1-inch display.
It's running Android version 4.2, and it has a quad-core 1.2 gigahertz processor on the inside.
Around the sides, you get a few
bonuses including an HDMI connector for hooking the tablet up to your TV and a microSD port for bumping up the built-in storage.
Another quite cool feature is something Acer calls Intelispin.
Now, what this basically does, it uses sensors inside the tablets to rotate the display when you pop it down on a flat surface.
That's quite useful.
One downside is the screen resolution.
This is a 1280x800-pixel display, and that's not as many pixels as you will find on rival tablets like the new Nexus 7 or the Nexus 10.
One way the tablet could make up for that deficiency, however, is with its low price.
The Wi-Fi version is going to steal us at 249 Euros, which is pretty affordable.
So, all these considered, we've got a fairly ordinary
10-inch tablet here.
He is hoping the low price can redeem it.
