Acer has announced a new tablet dubbed the Iconia One 8 at the CES 2016 which is sure to catch your kid's fancy. This all new tablet from Acer comes with Kid-Centric features and that too at a budget price.
The 8 inch tablet touting a HD (1280x800p) screen is part of Acer's Iconia series of slates. However this one runs on Android Lollipop 5.1 which comes with a simplified interface and pre-screened content solely targeted at children. The Taiwanese OEM has also bundled in a number of parental control features.
The Acer Iconia One 8 is powered by a quad core Mediatek SoC and 1GB of RAM. This is strapped to 16GB of on-board storage and a slot for memory expansion via MicroSD card (up to 128GB). While it's a known fact that users generally don't use cameras on their tablets, Acer has been quite generous in this regard by packing in a 5MP (rear) and 2MP (front) in the tablet.
As of now the specifications of the Acer Iconia One 8 tablet is quite sketchy. In fact Acer hasn't detailed regarding the battery, the exact SoC on the inside etc. However the Taiwanese OEM has quoted a launch price of $99, which vaguely translates to Rs 6,435 in Indian currency.
Prices are however expected to rise slightly when the tablet lands up in the country. Acer has also added that the tablet will retail in two colour variants - blue and white finish.
