The iPad Mini, which seemed like a device that could not overshadow tablets like the original iPad, or any other 10-inch tablet, has managed to surprise locals and strangers. And now there are others who want to imitate the model to achieve the same sales success. Acer in particular would have in mind to launch the Acer Iconia A1, a tablet with a 7.9-inch screen, and that would arrive with a price lower than 150 euros.
That is the information we have about the new tablet. Although it was considered that it could cost 250 or 200 dollars, it seems that some say that Acer would finally opt for a price of 150 dollars. The objective of the company would be clear, to attract customers with this tablet, although the money earned from each sale was not too much, thus expanding the brand among users. However, the question that remains is whether you can really build a tablet with the characteristics of the Acer Iconia A1 for just $ 150.
And, the new tablet would arrive with a 7.9-inch screen with IPS technology and a resolution of 1024 by 768 pixels. Among the multimedia features we would also have to include the five-megapixel main camera, and the 0.3-megapixel front camera. In addition, the memory would be 16 GB, expandable using a microSD card.
Its processor, on the other hand, would be a MediaTek MT8125 with ARM Cortex-A9 architecture, with four cores, with a clock frequency of 1.2 GHz, and which would be accompanied by a 1 GB RAM memory. It is remarkable that as an operating system it has Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, so it would be fully updated. In addition, its battery would be 3,250 mAh, the basics for a device with these characteristics.
We do not know the date on which the new tablet would be launched, but a price of $ 150 would mean a price of about 115 euros at the current exchange rate. We can assume that the change will not be this way, but that they will sell it for the same price in euros and dollars. Even so, it would still be a very economical price for a tablet with these characteristics.
