Running Android OS, with access to the vast catalogue of games and apps from the Google Play store, the Iconia A1 utilises high resolution IPS technology to give you a crisper clearer screen with a wider viewing angle. We know gamers value their graphics and the Iconia shouldn't disappoint. The beauty of Android also allows the more discerning tablet owner freedom to mod their device any way they want with flash-based games that can be played within the browser, a feature unavailable on Apple devices.
More interestingly, Acer are offering a service called Acer Cloud. This allows you to sync your music across multiple devices and offers you the chance to escape other more restrictive eco-systems that own your music. This is a nice idea as long as Acer allow you to use music you already own (DRM or not) and would work really well with streaming devices like Chromecast. The option to share user-created content easily will also satisfy the social networking addicts among you too.
Other impressive features such as the robust build quality, small bezel and brushed aluminium rear means the Acer could be a great device for gaming on the go as well as home use. A longer lasting battery also means more gaming, music-listening and film-watching on long-haul flights (as well as preventing any problems when boarding with uncharged devices!).
Acer have a renowned history of making great laptops and PCs and the Acer Iconia A1 tablet could be a fantastic proposition to the new gamer who is entering the mobile device market for the first time.
