Acer Iconia A1-810 tablet takes aim at Google Nexus 7, iPad Mini

A French online retailer, Rueducommerce, briefly put the unannounced Acer Iconia A1-810 tablet on its website before removing it after tech news outlet Android Authority linked to it.

The tablet is set to replace the Acer Iconia A200 and will be a more expensive alternative to the Acer Iconia B1. The A1-810 runs on a Mediatek SoC, the MT8125 which has four Cortex-A9 cores clocked at 1.2GHz with an I.T. PowerVR SGX544 GPU.

Other rumoured specs include a 7.9in IPS display with a 1,024 x 768 pixel resolution (the same as the iPad Mini), a 5-megapixel rear camera, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, a microHDMI port, a microSD card slot, a front facing VGA camera, a 3,250mAh battery, 1GB of RAM and 16GB onboard storage.

The tablet will cost around 199 Euros or around £169, which is slightly more expensive than the Nexus 7 but has more features.

Note that it weighs 460g and is a mere 10.5mm thick.

Some will baulk at the thickness of the bezel which adds to the width and height of the device and making it significantly larger than the competition.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
