Everyone across the world are familiar with Acer for making PC with innovative features most of the time, Acer also known for making smartphones and tablets, today they announced its light weight, stylish and compact 7 inch(17.78 cm) tablet simultaneously in New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai, however there isn’t much whooping specs or hardware to excite about rather than getting the voice calling feature with enabled 3G.
It runs quite outdated Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 as most of the devices have started getting the Kitkat, however, at the launch event they mentioned that within few days of purchase one can update it to the latest Kitkat 4.4 which I think a positive thing for the people who are planning to get this.
Encased in a sleek, slim and premium-looking design, the Acer Iconia A1-713 tablet is light and compact as well and weights as 305 gms. In order to describe the design, I would like to say that, it is pretty comfortable to hold and use in a single hand which is not possible with all the tablet available in this category. It might be a decent choice foe those who are looking a tablet for video calling, browsing, playing games or watching movies on the go. Acer Iconia A1-713 packs 16 GB as internal storage space which can be further expandable up to 32 GB via micro SD card.
Being a 7 inch tablet also don’t have even HD display at it boasts only a display resolution of 1024×800 pixels but the viewing angle is remarkable due to the IPS screen that offers stunning visuals and sharp image and video experience. Powered by a decent Quad-Core Cortex A7 1/3 GHz processor which deliver responsive performance with fast access of processing data all day long.
Mr S. Rajendran, Cheif Marketing officer, Acer India, stated at the launch event,

It also houses variety of connectivity features such as Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi and 3G, also offers both front and rear camera so that one can easily take photos and make video calls on the go. One thing which we missed is the batter specifications and offering 1 yera international warranty, but I assure you in the next complete hands-on review I will try to list all the highlights and lacks about this device. Check out some of the images that describes this device.
One thing, I have forgot to mention is, Acer is also offering few security features such as store the backup or your data, images, contacts directly to the Acer cloud by just registering to the new launched Acer’s cloud service. Also they are allowing users to track their lost device and secure all the data from anywhere across the world.
