Acer unveiled the Acer Iconia A1, the company’s first full-featured 20.1 cm (7.9”) tablet targeted at modern day explorers, adventurers, digital freaks and busy mobile executives requiring an all-day mobile companion. Thanks to a sleek and light-weight design that is comfortable to hold in one hand, it also easily fits into a purse. The new Acer Iconia A1 keeps people entertained and connected with smooth and speedy navigation, browsing and media playback powered by a fast quad-core processor.
