AnonD-282952, 12 Jul 2014Does anyone now if i update my tablet, i will lose root?Most likely. Didn't tried out yet. PS: My tab is not rooted.
AnonD-283057, 13 Jul 2014i updated nothing happen still on jelly beanIt is a pre-kitkat update. Kit Kat update will come after this update. Notice the change in keyboard and emojis. :)
AnonD-254108, 12 Jul 2014Received KitKat notification too! Wow Acer, what a surprise!i updated nothing happen still on jelly bean
I recently posted this on Acer Forum Community of Users for the Iconica A1-810 from Acer...
They totally erased parts of my message concerning the truth about the update on this unit
please read it...
«After Talking to Acer then Google Android's team...that shoot me right back at Acer...Saying it is to them to make all updates available ...for now they are locked by Acer team.
Even thought they want you to believe that they have not finished testing KitKat with Iconia A1-810...
They are lying...because...not only they are not doing any test...they just stopped supporting this device and locked it to Jelly Bean 4.2.2.
They will not confirm you this over the phone or on Chat .
But clearly Acer will not update this tablet like the advertisement said when we all purchased the unit.
Nothing in the hardware would prevent the unit to get KitKat...and even the new L upcoming...(asides from certains feature that won't work because of it's hardware limitations)
So...Acer is fooling us... +
Be aware that the Heartbleed fault issue for security is not protected from when on Jelly Bean 4.2.2.
Google advises all to update to the latest KitKat 4.4.3 to get protection from the Heartbleed.
So I've decided enough is enough...
I made this Facebook page to collect data info on the Iconia A1-810 users database. To inform them of this.
And perhaps gather enought attention and fallowers to sign a petition against this practice by Acer Team.
If I get enough of petitionners I'll will fileup a lawsuit against Acer with all your supported signatures.
The battle Starts here my friend and if you know any Iconia A1-810 users pass the word please
«The goal of this page...
Is to expose and gather all users of the Acer Iconia A1-810 will never get the promised updates for their Android OS.
It will be stuck with the present 4.2.2. Jelly Bean.
Not only they have no intention of updating it...
But they already support other newer models like the A1-830 that is updatable to KitKat.
So...if you want to be part of a potentiel Lawsuit against Acer this is the place to reports yourselves.
As soon as I get a desired amount of users that supports this idea of a lawsuit. I will bring the case in court with your signatures.
And hopefully if we win we all get compensations and the future updates to Google's Android OS.
Thanx a bunch»
And then visit this Fb page to gather your info...and signatures so I can fufill a legitimate lawsuit agains them for usurpation and false claim.
Because when we purchased this unit...it was said it you be updatable garanteed.
Paul, 16 Dec 2013Does anybody have a buzzing sound when using headphones on this tablet?Yes, there is a buzz in the headphone jack. I have checked two so far and both have a background buzz in the headphone jack. Otherwise a neat tablet but very weak I think that Acer is unable to design or manufacture a tablet to provide a decent audio socket. If anyone knows a viable workaround, other than bluetooth audio, please post.
z, 21 Jun 2014how or where to view the size of this model? Acer tab A1-810DISPLAY Type LED-backlit IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors
Size 768 x 1024 pixels, 7.9 inches (~162 ppi pixel density)
Hey acer a1 is a great tablet and since 2014 acer has corrected the los sensetivity screen
Very nice tablet with excellent form factor.
But, since it can not be updated to KitKat (manufactorer offers no updates and - worse! - blocks any possibility of installing a custom ROM by locking the boot loader.
I really hate to say it, but I cannot recommend this tablet and this manufacturer.
The touch screen is not very sensitive, and sometimes requires multiple tap attempts.To play Flash videos,I use Puffin free browser.

Acer tablets are not all rounders.
You might satisfy with the high end processor(quad core) or RAM for SOME games.:-S
But it's touch screens are terrible and you can't use it as a drawing tablet.:-( :-(
Also they do not care about users and they hardly fix their bugs...
You can go for other brands like micromax,zigo..(as your country)for same performance at low price.(but be careful and read opinion on them also):-/
sammie, 31 Aug 2013is this child friendly? good with games & playing videos? comparing it to asus nexus 7, wh... moreHad for 6 months. One for me and one for the kids.
Been dropped, stepped on, and generally kicked round by the kids and I can say this tablet is EXCELLENT. Just be cautious letting them charge it as it has only one charge connector, and it is fragile.
Only thing is you will NEED a screen protector. Not that this tab has a especially scratchable screen, but kids can always scratch anything :-)
shmi, 07 Nov 2013otg suport??????? yes or no ?Yes, and it comes provided with a dongle, too :-)
Tested with keyboard, wireless keyboard/mouse, USB devices, card reader, external Bluetooth, webcam etc.. All works.
Only downside is can't OTG and charge at the same time, as both use the only micro-USB connector.
