The Acer Iconia A1-830 looks surprisingly dapper (pictures)

Slight bezel

LAS VEGAS -- The 830's most striking quality is its ultrathin bezels. Sure, a 1,024x768 resolution on a 7.9-inch screen doesn't make for the sharpest images in the world, but at least the actual tablet looks pretty stylish.

Grills

Dual speaker grills indicate that the 830's sound capability will at least be decent.

Charge

The headphone jack and next to it, the Micro-USB port for charging. Also, here's a good look at just how thin the tablet is.

Expansion

The MicroSD storage expansion slot extends the somewhat piddly 16GB of storage by up to an additional 32GB.
