Acer is prepping a 7.9-inch Android tablet to take on Apple iPad Mini, which shares the same screen size. Dubbed as the Iconia A1-810, the new tablet has been spotted on an online French retailer site - RueduCommerce. Earlier this year, the company has announced its budget friendly Android tablet - the Iconia B1-A71.
According to RueduCommerce, Acer Iconia A1-810 will flaunt a 7.9-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1024 X 768 pixels. The device is equipped with a 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek MT8125 processor paired with 1GB of RAM and runs on Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) OS. It has an internal storage of 16GB that can be further expanded up to 32GB via MicroSD card.
Beside these, there's also a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 0.3MP VGA front-facing camera. In terms of wireless connectivity, the tablet supports Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n), Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. Weighing 460 grams at 10.5 mm thickness, it packs a 3250 mAh battery that has enough juice to offer up to 7 hours of video.
