Acer is adding a new Android tablet to its lineup. The Acer Iconia A3 is a 10 inch model which the company says is designed for entertainment. It has a Dolby Digital Plus audio with with virtualized 5.1 channel audio over headphones, an IPS display, and HDMI output.
But there’s not really a lot which makes the Acer Iconia A3 stand out from other low-cost 10 inch tablets.
The tablet has a 1280 x 800 pixel display, a 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex-A7 quad-core processor (probably a MediaTek MT8125), a 5MP rear camera, up to 32GB of storage, a microSD card slot, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean software.
Acer says the tablet should run for up to 9 hours on a charge. It features WiFi and Bluetooth, and there’s an optional 3G model available.
The Acer Iconia A3 measures 0.4″ thick and weighs 1.3 pounds. It’ll be available in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa in October for €249 and up. That’s about $329 US. A 3G version will be available in the same regions in November for €299 and up.
Acer hasn’t yet announced if or when the tablet will be available in the US, but that’s not surprising, since the company is introducing the tablet during the week of Europe’s biggest consumer electronics show, IFA.
