Acer's latest tablet takes aim at the Apple iPad mini
The Acer A1-810 takes aim at a particular tablet from a competitor and it is not terribly hard to know which one it is. With a 7.9 inch IPS LCD display showing resolution of 1024 x 768, this new Acer tablet has a screen that matches up perfectly with the one on the Apple iPad mini. We're not sure though, that Acer should be bragging about this considering that the screen is the number one complaint about Apple's 'byte sized' tablet. With a pixel density of 162ppi on the current model, Apple is rumored to be looking at releasing a Retina display version of the device.

The rest of the specs for the Acer A1-810 include the quad-core 1.2GHz MediaTek MT8125 ARM Cortex-A9 quad-core processor residing under the hood. 1GB of RAM is on board while 16GB of storage is inside. The cameras on back and in front weigh in at 5MP and .3MP respectively while a 3250mAh battery keeps the lights on. Android 4.2 is installed right out of the box.

While the tablet isn't expected to launch until June 3rd, French retailer Rue Du Commerce is taking pre-orders of the device priced at €199 ($258.56 USD). Other countries and retailers should start to reveal their prices as we get closer to the launch date. It should be interesting to see if Apple has a Retina display version of the Apple iPad mini ready to go by June.
