Look, it's the Nexus 7
. Look closer, and you'll see that it's not. No, this is Acer
's attempt to one-up Asus' Nexus 7, and it's called the Iconia A1 Tablet. Marketed as a "one-handed tablet," this 7" Android slate offers up a 7.9" LED-backlit (IPS) display with a 1024x768 screen resolution, a 5MP camera, 7-hour battery life, MediaTek Quad Core 1.2GHz processor and access to the Google Play store.
It weighs under a pound and measures 0.44" thick, while also including GPS, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, micro-USB port, a micro-HDMI connector and your choice of 8GB/16GB internal storage. There's a microSD expansion slot as well, and the $199 starting price is sure to catch some eyes. It'll ship in June, but one has to wonder if Google will have already made it obsolete with whatever tablet is inevitably launched at Google I/O later in the month.
