Acer Iconia A1 appears in local store for Php9,990




Acer’s 8-inch tablet, the Iconia A1-810, appeared in local store Villman earlier this week and is priced at under Php10,000. It is the Taiwanese company’s answer to the Nexus 7 and the iPad Mini but positions itself to be more affordable.

We saw this tablet earlier this month at the Computex in Taipei and you can read more about it here in our first impressions review.


 

Acer Iconia A1-810 specs:
7.9-inch IPS LCD display @ 1024×768 pixels, 162ppi
MediaTek MT8125 1.2GHz quad-core processor
1GB RAM
16GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD support
5MP rear camera
VGA front-facing
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 4.0
GPS with aGPS support
mini-HDMI port
Li-Ion 4,960mAh battery
Android 4.2 Jellybean
Dimension: 208.7 x 145.7 x 10.5 mm
Weight: 460g

We actually saw this posted on Villman’s website just before Computex but it was quickly pulled off. It looks like this time, it will be permanent.

Acer Philippines is launching new products on June 27 so we’re guessing the Iconia A1 will also be there and it’s more likely that the Php9,990 is already the suggested retail price.

    For that specs, plus it’s a global brand, this is actually a steal. Glad that branded gadgets are starting to price down their products, especially Acer and Asus.

      The screen resolution sux. I won’t pay Php 10k (branded or not) for a crappy low ppi screen

      720p should be the norm these days

    • fcuk says:

      @abuzalzal
      So, you want to fit a 1280×720 (16:9 aspect ratio) resolution onto that 4:3 aspect ratio screen. Impossible. Where the hell did you left your rotting brain again?

    • abuzalzal says:

      But a WXGA can….generalization lang yung ginawa ko kumag, since hindi nagkakalayo ang PPi count ng 720p at WXGA

      Pulutin mo utak mo sa banyo, mukhang naiwan mo eh, ang point ko….MAHAL ang Php10k kung ganung kababang resolution lang ang makukuha mo

    • MrZekrom says:

      @abuzalzal ikaw ang maghanap ng utak mo! paano nila pataasin ung ppi kung ganyan ung price at the same time ung chipset… na di hamak na cortex a7… kung mas mataas ung pixel density… mahihirapan ung processor! ulol! at sabi nga… hindi puwede ang 1280×720 kasi 4:3 ang aspect ratio… hindi 16:9…. kaya check what you are posting!….check it!!!!!!

    • fcuk says:

      @abuzalzal
      Why don’t you tell that to Acer then?
      Seriously, a 4:3 resolution is good for reading books and browsing websites so why complain? And you should’ve cleared up you want something higher and yet the same aspect ratio on the device.

      Oh and by the way, from the way how you talk, you looked like a total techtarded jerk. Naiwan mo yata yung utak mo sa tamod mo kasi salsal ka ng salsal habang nanonood ka ng kalaswaan dyan sa 1080p phone mo. Pangalan mo pa lang halatang mahilig ka sa onanism.

    • jefferson says:

      @abuzalzal
      yan ka na namang utak tamod ka. kung gusto mo ng phone na swak sa 10k mo, edi gumawa ka. puro ka satsat eh. kung ayaw mo wag kang bumili.

      nga pala, gusto mong malaman kung paano ka makakagawa ng tablet na swak sa budget mo? eto gawin mo: makipagkantutan ka dyan sa luma mong tablet para makagawa ka ng gusto mo. gets?

    • set says:

      makikisingit lng po… hndi nmn hardcore techie pero ang galaxy tab 7.7 may super amoled plus na display na yun pero nasa 196ppi lng sya plus worth 20k to 25k pa so kumpara sa tablet na to eh magandang deal na ang 10k… suntok sa buwan yung 720ppi sa ngaun na ganung price… siguro in the year 2030 posible na…

    • Spike like Mike says:

      @abuzalzal

      Epal ka promise! Wlang maganda sayo, lahat sayo me pintas at ang comments mo pakalat kalat parang utak mo.

      Nkita mo ba mtaas ang PPI ng ipad mini then compare mo yung price nun dito.

      Di ka makaepal kasi lhat ng comments sayo dito eh soplak sayo! Unggoy!

      Shabu shabu pa pag me time!

    • moah says:

      @abuzalzal
      sa palagay ko, gusto mo ng 720p na tablet para dyan sa porn collection mo diba? kung gusto mo ng 720p dyan ka na lang manood sa may lcd tv nyo sa may sofa. dyan ka manood ng porn kasama yung pamilya mo. o kung gusto mo, mag-operate ka ng giant screens dito sa eastwood libis at i-broadcast mo yung porn collection mo dyan.

      puro ka naman satsat…feeling mo mas magaling ka pa sa mga engineers na gumawa ng tablet na yan. get real. go get some reality check. hindi ka engineer para magdictate ng specs sa tablet na yan.

      P.S. Hinay-hinay lang sa pagsalsal, baka mapunta yung utak mo sa nilalabas mong tamod.

    • Notreading says:

      @abuzalzal, di ka marunong magbasa? 768×1280 na nga screen resolution nyan oh. Mas mataas pa yun sa 720p. hindi ka ba nag iisip? haha

    • Fernando says:

      If you will read the comments of the two quarrelsome readers above, you can say bright naman pareho. Pareho na lang dapat mag-enrol sa anger management hehe. Pano na kung ganyan mga officemates natin, worse, boss pa natin. Mag-Yoga din kayo pag me time.

    • perti says:

      pass the popcorn please…

    • ROA says:

      @Notreading, definitely you’re not reading. It’s just 1024×768, not 1280.

  3. MrZekrom says:

    sige nga abuzalzalero! ikaw nga magmanufacture ng 720p tablet na may 4:3 resolution!

  4. ROA says:

    I only care about having a 720p display when we talk about gadgets having at least 10 inches of screen, so this one’s good enough. If I have a 720p or a 1080p video, I’d rather play it on our 39″ TV than on a 8″ tablet. What’s the point of playing these type of videos on a small screen when these were made to be crisp and clear on large screens.

    • gu-tom says:

      pagpasensyahan mo na lang yang si @abuzalzal. mahina lang talaga yung comprehension nya gawa ng naiwan nya yung utak nya sa nilabas nyang tamod. puro na lang satsat wala namang pambili at kung meron man, magrereklamo pa kahit ayaw nya bilhin ang device.

    hindi lang naman ung screen resolution ung 10k ah. quad core, 1gb ram, 16gb internal at almost 5000mAh ung binabayadan mo sa 10k. ayos na yan, tska branded pa.

  8. Rick says:

    ayaw ko na sa acer, tagal ng updates nila eh saka ang sama ng experience ko sa service center nila sa manila. Pinagantay ako ng 3 hours for nothing….

    I wonder kung nandito na yung HD7 ng asus? Sir yuga?

  9. SmartBrod says:
