Acer seems to be planning to reduce the price of its Iconia A1-810 tablet even before the official launch. The tablet, which was spotted at a French retailer couple of days back, carried a price tag of €199 (around $258), but now company is thinking to take it down to $149.
If this is indeed true then this is certainly a very steep price-reduction from the company.
According to a report in Digitimes, Acer Iconia A1-810 tablet features display panel from AU Optronics (AUO) and is being manufactured by OEM Wistron. It will go in mass production later this month.
As per the retailer listing, Acer Iconia A1-810 features a 7.9-inch 1024x768p display. It is powered by 1.2GHz MediaTek quad-core MT8125 processor.
Among other features, Acer has included 1GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage, microSD card support and usual connectivity options. On the imaging front, the Iconia A1-810 packs a 5MP primary camera and VGA front camera.
Buoyed by sales of company’s another budget tablet Iconia B1, Acer has also recently raised its tablet shipment forecast to 10 million units from 5 million.
