Acer Iconia B1 is the most popular tablet of the China-based tablet manufacturer, but the Asian company has another slate in its portfolio that raised our interest. We are talking about Acer Iconia A1-810, that can be admired in the gallery below, a white budget tablet packing a 7.9-inch display.

Late February, Acer launched an Android tablet with a 7-inch display, interesting hardware configuration and affordable price, but the company thought that the popular iPad Mini should get a better rival: Iconia A1-801.

The new Acer tablet has a display with the same size and resolution of the one fitted on the iPad Mini: 7.9 inches and 1,024 x 768 pixels. Beyond the 4:3 aspect ratio the Iconia A1-801 stands out with its MediaTek MT8125 chipset, an accessible solution that brings a quad-core ARM Cortex A9 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz and a PowerVR SGX531 GPU.

The Acer Iconia A1-801 also sports 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage (expandable through microSD cards), and a 3,250 mAh battery.

The technical specifications list also include a rear-facing camera with 5 megapixel sensor and a front-facing VGA camera, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, GPS module, and HDMI out. Acer Iconia A1-801 is 208.7 mm tall, 145.7 mm wide, and 10.5 mm thin and weighs 460 grams.

Acer Iconia A1-810 is expected to hit the market sometime this summer at a price of €199. The new slate will run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.
