Acer’s iPad Mini competitor is called Iconia A1-810, runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean

Acer is getting ready to launch a new Android tablet that can be seen as a threat to the iPad Mini.

Called Iconia A1-810, the device sports a 7.9 inch IPS display with 1024 x 768 pixels – just like Apple’s smaller tablet. That aside, the new Iconia runs the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and features: a quad-core 1.2GHz MediaTek MT8125 processor, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, HDMI port, VGA front-facing camera, 5MP rear camera, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support. The tablet weighs 460 grams, measures 208,7 x 145,7 x 10,5 mm, and has a 3,250 mAh battery.

Most likely, the Iconia A1-810 is the rumored quad-core 8 inch Acer tablet that we told you about in January. The Taiwanese company should also introduce a new 10 inch tablet later this year.

French online retailer Rue Du Commerce has priced the Acer Iconia A1-810 at €199 – €140 less than an iPad Mini 16GB. The A1-810 is expected to be in stock starting June 3. I assume it will also be available in other markets pretty soon.

Acer hopes to sell at least 7 million Android tablets throughout 2013. This new A1-810, as well as the 7 inch Iconia B1 (released earlier this year for $149.99), should help the company achieve its goal.

    As long as their profit margins stay thin, who cares how many tablets Acer sells. Let them boast about eating into Apple’s tablet market share, as usual. Eventually, maybe there will be far more collective Android tablets sold than iPads, but Apple will still be selling the greatest numbers of tablets of any single brand while making the greatest profits. As an Apple shareholder that’s what matters most to me.
