Acer unveiled the follow-up to the Iconia Tab A3. The Acer Iconia 10 adds a 1,920 x 1,200px (WUXGA) option for the screen, updates the chipset and launches with Android 4.4 KitKat.
There are two versions of the new tablet. The $250 one comes with a 10.1" WUXGA screen, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in storage and a MediaTek MT8217 chipset with a quad-core Cortex-A7 processor at 1.5GHz. The screen is laminated to the glass and has fingerprint-resistant coating.
The cheaper $200 tablet has a 1,280 x 800px screen, half the RAM and storage (1GB/16GB) and a downclocked processor (1.3GHz).
All models are Wi-Fi only and are available in Black and White. The tablets have 5,910mAh or 5,700mAh batteries (depending on the exact model), 2MP selfie cameras and Dolby audio tech.
2.5 years ago you could have such res for even cheaper (nook hd+). Nowadays you can have it for half that price (chinese tablets). So yeah, this tablet is not even close to being cheap compared to modern standards ...
Why do companies keep coming up with Android tablets? They're not worth their money. The only good tablets are iPads (for doing simple stuff) and Windows 8.1 tablets (for doing everything). Android tablets have no real purpose.
Android KitKat 4.4??? Really now...in the age of Lollipop?...*sigh*...
