TAIPEI--Taiwanese computer vendor Acer Inc. announced yesterday that it will showcase a new tablet with a 7.9-inch display and in-plane switching (IPS) technology at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week.
“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 company said in a statement.
Powered by Intel's Atom Z2560 1.6GHz processor, the 0.84-pound 0.32-inch tablet features 1GB of onboard LPDDR2 SDRAM, which Acer said can deliver fluid and fast navigation through applications and websites, smooth video playback and better mobile gaming.
“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 finish and great performance and sound,” he added.
The IPS display offers crisp and accurate colors from viewing angles up to 178 degrees for an enhanced visual experience, the company said.
The Taiwanese brand also unveiled many new devices on Friday, including all-in-one computers, touch-enabled Chromebooks and smartphones, in the hope of reviving its struggling business.
