For the rest of the week until Saturday, June 18th, Amazon is offering a steal on the Acer Iconia One 8 Tablet. The company is making the gadget available for purchase for only $79.99, with free shipping. Without added fees, the original price of the item was more than a hundred dollars, so the savings are significant.
However, consumers need to learn about the item instead of happily clicking because of a low price tag. As BGR notes, the screen is 8.0" HD 1280 x 800 resolution, IPS LCD with LED-backlight display. It has an internal memory of 16GB, but comes with a MicroSD slot for as much as 64GB.
The Iconia One 8 has an Android KitKat Operating System, and Intel's Atom Processor Quad-Core with Intel Burst Technology up to 183GHz. Thanks to the processor, the tablet runs smoothly despite coming with a slew of pre-downloaded applications. No matter what the tablet is tasked to do, it can deliver without a glitch.
The rear camera is 5MP and the front camera is only 0.3MP. The unit, when fully charged, can last up to 7 hours of continuous use and is Bluetooth capable and comes with one Micro USB 2.0 port.
It's basic as far as tablets go, and this is why the price is not steep. As Trusted Reviews describes the gadget, "It's not glamorous; it just gets on with things."
At only 355g, the Iconia One 8 is very light and very sensible. The dimensions are 127.7 x 213.9 x 9.5mm, with a display of 8 inches. The front is very minimal, with the screen simply surrounded by a black frame, with the top and bottom a little thicker than those at the sides - this makes it easier to hold the unit in landscape mode.
The speakers oddly sit at the back and bottom of the tablet, making it difficult to hold and listen to in landscape.
The Iconia One 8 comes in a variety of 10 colors and it should be easy for interested buyers to get access to covers and cases. Visit the Amazon page here.
