we are huge suckers for beautiful tablets and by beautiful, we meant not having clumsy looking bezels. if you are on the same page as us, then we suspect this upcoming offering from Taiwanese computer maker Acer, dubbed the Acer Iconia A1-830 Android Tablet, might be right up your alley. with a 4:3 aspect ratio and reasonably narrow bezel (complete with the chrome chamfered edges), the Iconia A1-830 does have an iPad mini-ish, which is exactly how we like our tablets to be. and with an aluminum metal back, it kind of rival the look of the iPad mini – though we can’t really vouch for the built, but that’s beside the point. the point is, it does look pretty awesome.
running the clockwork is an Intel Atom processor with 1GB of RAM, along with features like 16GB onboard memory, microSD cards lot (supports up to 32GB), a humble 1,024 x 768 screen resolution, an unspecified rear-facing shooter that captures Full HD video at 2,560 x 1,920 resolution, a front-facing camera capable of 720p videoing, Bluetooth 3.0 and a battery touting 7.5 hours of usage. the Acer Iconia A1-830 Android Tablet might be premium, but it is certainly not a high-end option and with that, it comes with an affordable price tag of $149 when it goes on sale in North America ‘early 2014’. there’s no telling when the ‘early 2014’ might be, so for now, avid Acer fans can hit up Acer’s booth at the International CES happening next week, from January 7-10.
