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.
