Acer Iconia A3 tablet takes on Nexus 7 Video Transcript
Hello. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET here at the IFA tech trade show in Berlin. We're taking a look at this. It's the Acer Iconia A3 tablet. So, let's go over the basics. This tablet looks like a lot that we've seen before. It's got a 10.1-inch display. It's running Android version 4.2, and it has a quad-core 1.2 gigahertz processor on the inside. Around the sides, you get a few bonuses including an HDMI connector for hooking the tablet up to your TV and a microSD port for bumping up the built-in storage. Another quite cool feature is something Acer calls Intelispin. Now, what this basically does, it uses sensors inside the tablets to rotate the display when you pop it down on a flat surface. That's quite useful. One downside is the screen resolution. This is a 1280x800-pixel display, and that's not as many pixels as you will find on rival tablets like the new Nexus 7 or the Nexus 10. One way the tablet could make up for that deficiency, however, is with its low price. The Wi-Fi version is going to steal us at 249 Euros, which is pretty affordable. So, all these considered, we've got a fairly ordinary 10-inch tablet here. He is hoping the low price can redeem it. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET. Please check out CNET.com/IFA for more IFA coverage.
