Acer America today unveiled the new Acer Iconia A1-830, a 7.9-inch Android tablet with a premium and stylish design, vibrant IPS display(1), responsive performance and rich sound, starting at just $149. The Acer Iconia A1-830 is ideal for consumers who want a superior tablet for enjoying web browsing, casual gaming, sharing and staying connected.

The new Acer Iconia A1-830 debuts at this year's 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. It will be shown for the first time at Pepcom's Digital Experience! media event on Monday, Jan. 6, which highlights some of the hottest gadgets and technologies debuting this week.

"Our fundamental goal when creating the Acer Iconia A1-830 was to provide our customers with an optimized Android tablet that stands out from other devices," said Jerry Kao, associate vice president of Acer Mobile Consumer Business Unit. "Consumers expect more than ever from value-oriented products, and the Acer Iconia A1-830 tablet delivers much more than tablets in this class with its vibrant IPS display, premium aluminum metal finish and great performance and sound."

Stylish Design with IPS Display
The tablet features a premium design with an aluminum rear cover and a metal mid-frame to add strength and rigidity to the device. This durable design provides additional protection for the 7.9-inch display (1024 x 768 resolution) with IPS technology. The IPS display offers crisp and accurate colors from viewing angles up to 178 degrees for an enhanced visual experience. The 4:3 aspect ratio provides a large viewing area for browsing websites and reading.

The premium chassis features an elegant silver design that is comfortable to hold thanks to its smooth finish and rounded edges. The tablet is stylish and portable at only 0.84 pounds. Also, the 7.9-inch display is surrounded by a sleek bezel and measures only 0.32 inches (8.15mm) thin, so it's easy to hold in just one hand for convenient multi-touch.

Performance and Long Battery Life for Web-Browsing and Entertainment
The Acer Iconia A1-830 is powered by an Intel® Atom™ (Clover Trail+) Z2560 1.6GHz processor and 1GB of onboard LPDDR2 SDRAM, so it delivers fluid and fast navigation through apps and websites, smooth video playback and better mobile gaming.

"People continue to demand more from their tablets, and we must stay ahead of what they need and want to do," said Hermann Eul, corporate vice president and general manager for Intel's Mobile and Communications Group. "Acer has designed a tablet that does just that using our multi-core multi-threaded Intel Atom processor for Android. The new Acer Iconia A1-830 provides a smooth, seamless and responsive Android-based mobile experience for multitasking, web browsing and gaming. We're excited to see another Intel-based Android tablet available for consumers."

Designed for a great portable media experience, the Iconia A1-830 plays vibrant video and movies. Customers will enjoy their media even more with dual speakers for rich stereo sound. There is plenty of room to store media and apps with the tablet's 16GB of storage, as well as via the microSD slot that supports cards up to 32GB(3). The Iconia A1-830 also features the Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean operating system and 7.5 hours of battery life.

The Acer Iconia A1-830 keeps consumers connected to Wi-Fi networks with 802.11b/g/n wireless. Its rear-facing camera captures 1080p HD audio/video recording with a 2560 x 1920 resolution. The front facing camera is great for video chats and capturing images with a 1600 x 1200 resolution for 720p audio/video recording. Plus, the tablet's integrated microUSB and Bluetooth 3.0 lets consumers quickly connect the tablet to a variety of other devices, such as headsets and speakers.

Acer PCs can be seamlessly integrated for accessing data anytime, anywhere -- through Build Your Own Cloud (BYOC™)(4). It enables users to build their own cloud on their devices, such as music, photos and other types of clouds.
