Let the CES flood begin! Acer is launching two new Android tablets today: the creatively named Iconia A1-830 and B1-720.
The A1-830 is a 7.9-inch, 4:3 budget tablet that runs Android 4.2.1. The display is a 1024×768 IPS, which at 7.9 inches puts it at only 162 PPI. The good news is that the device is made out of aluminum, and the really interesting news is the processor: a Intel Atom (Clover Trail+) Z2560 running at 1.6Ghz. This makes it one of only a handful of x86 Android devices. The rest of the specs are nothing surprising: 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a microSD slot, 802.11b/g/n, a front and rear camera, and Bluetooth 3.0.
Acer is promising 7.5 hours of battery life and availability sometime this quarter for $149.99.
