Acer’s next affordable Android tablet, 7.9-inch Iconia A1-830 is set to release to the U.S. market soon wit $149 price tag, as the device has been entered to the FCC before entering to store shelves.
In early-January, Acer unveiled the device and promised to release in North America in first quarter of 2014. Now, the FCC application shows that the company is keeping promise.
However, Acer already has few 8-inch Android tablets in its lineup, but those are powered by ARM-based chipsets, while the new Acer Iconia A1-830 comes wit the 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2560 Clover Trail+ processor, which is first time in its 8-inch tablets lineup. This processor will increase the battery life of the tablet up to 7.5 hours per charge.
Regarding the other part of the specification of the tablet, it comes with a 7.9-inch LED display with 1,024 x 768 resolution, 1GB of RAM, 5-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front camera, 16GB of internal storage along with the expandable micros SD card slot, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0 and an impressive 4,000mAh battery.
When unveiling the tablet, the company also promised to release the accessories including a “Crunch Cover” which is a microfiber case that also work as a stable stand and a “Crunch Keyboard” that’s built into a faux-leather case, the same material we have seen in the Samsung Galaxy Note 3‘s back.
