Hands On Review
We attended the launch which in held in Mumbai, and we got the time to have an actual glimpse of the device. The build quality is sturdy and metal which looks stylish enough, screen was pretty good, but if it would have been an 720p display then it would have been looked more better. As its targeted at budget the device with single SIM i think that’s good. There were few bloatware apps included like acer store, acer cloud, audible still it manages to give about 11.5 GB free space in internal memory but it can’t completely relay on external storage.
Prize and Availablity
The Acer ICONIA A1 is priced at RS 12,999 and will be available today nationwide starting today at all ACER retail outlets (which includes stores like croma ).
