Acer's iPad mini challenger, the Iconia A1-830, is upgradeable to Android 4.4 KitKat

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.

Not as good as nexus 7 and a far cry from the iPad mini retina. Don't even mention the first gen iPad mini as ita obsolete crap running 3 year old CPU for a crazy price Real iPad mini contenders on the android space are nexus 7 , G Pad gpe , tabpro 8.4

Really nice device & ad by Acer! I see they are putting so much effort into this particular device... I love their new Acer animation at the end.. Somehow it kinda mimics Intel.. Hehe. I've tried their first gen A1 tablet & it is not bad at all for the price! Now with an Intel processor, much better design & overall better quality, Im sure this tablet would be a hit in the budget segment!
