Acer unveiled the Iconia A1-830 Android tablet back in early January, but the 8 inch device still has to reach the stores. While this information is not public yet, it seems the release date is drawing near, as this slate has just been spotted at the FCC.
The Acer Iconia A1-830 uses an Intel Atom Z2560 1.6 GHz Clover Trail+ processor unlike earlier A1 models which were powered by ARM-based chips built by MediaTek. Thanks to this energy efficient processor and its 4,000 mAh battery, the A1-830 promises to offer up to 7.5 hours of autonomy.
The slate also features a 7.9-inch IPS display with a modest resolution of only 1,024X768 pixels, 1 GB of memory and 16 GB internal storage, but that can be increased with the help of the included microSD card slot.
In terms of connectivity, the A1-830 comes with micro USB, WiFi 802.11n and Bluetooth 3.0. This tablet also has two cameras - a 5 MP rear one and a 2 MP front-facing webcam.
The Acer Iconia A1-830 has been tested by the FCC with Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean and, unfortunately, nothing is known about the possible updates to be issued after its release. We will surely get back to this $149 tablet (price announced for the US market) as soon as Acer uncovers its release date.
