Sporting a 7.9-inch display with a metal-made rear case, the Acer Iconia A1-830 can be considered an iPad mini competitor. However, since its screen resolution is of 768 x 1024 pixels, the tablet can sit only next to the first-generation iPad mini, as the newer iPad mini 2 with Retina Display is in a class of its own.
The Iconia A1-830 will cost $149.99 when it hit shelves. It’ll run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean at launch, but its promo video - embedded below - assures us that it will be updated to 4.4 KitKat at some point. Other features: dual-core Intel Atom Z2560 clocked at 1.6GHz, dual speakers, 5MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support.
