Never knowingly undersold

Product information

The sleek Acer Iconia A1-830 has been crafted from high quality materials for a deluxe look and feel. The metallic back makes this Android tablet both premium and durable, while the Intel® Atom™ processor helps to deliver smooth performance in your apps and games.

Excellent Performance
The dual-core Intel Atom processor gives the Iconia A1 the power to deliver fast web browsing and better performance in games and apps. You'll also be able to enjoy this performance for longer without recharging too, thanks to a battery life as long as 7 hours 30 minutes of continuous HD video playback.

About a screen
The 7.9-inch screen on the Iconia A1 provides 35 per cent more screen than on a 7-inch tablet, without compromising its portability. The 4:3 aspect ration is ideal for browsing the web and reading eBooks, while the narrow bezel ensures that the screen dominates your vision. It measures just 8.15mm in depth, ensuring maximum portability, whether you're carrying it in you hand or slipping it away in a bag.

Iconia A1 is running on Android 4.2, Jelly Bean and comes complete with apps like Google Maps, YouTube and Google Play, for access to more games, apps, music tracks, movies and eBooks. With Android 4.2, you can set up different user accounts, making it possible for the whole family to enjoy their own individual apps and widgets, with parental controls in place to help you protect your children. You can also update the Iconia to Android 4.4 over an internet connection, giving you access to new features and improved functionality.

Immersed in entertainment
The HD display on the Iconia A1 features advanced IPS technology to ensure vibrant colours across wide 178° viewing angles. And with integrated dual speakers, you'll be able to hear more definition from you music and videos.
