    Acer plans to lift the lid on a brand-spanking new 10-inch tablet, the Iconia A3. Laptopmag spills the beans on a very ordinary tablet that’s thankfully priced rather well. The specs are decent for an Android tablet, so let’s see what the Iconia A3 offers us.
    The Iconia A3, which will only be legitimately revealed when IFA 2013 begins, is a 10-inch Android 4.2 tablet with a 1280×800 resolution, a quad-core 1.2Ghz CPU and “Intellispin”, a software feature from Acer that automatically detects the orientation of the A3, even when it’s on a flat surface.
    It’s also rather thin, at only 0.99cm thickness and 595 grams heavy. This weight and thickness, for this price is a decent combo of hardware and svelte design. Like most Android tablets, it comes with a bunch of smartphone-like extras that makes it not only more appealing, but easier to swallow as well. On the rear, there’s a 5-megapixel camera but on a 10-inch tablet that’s close to useless. Cameras on tablets have always been a poor idea, but to each their own. On the side, Acer has included a microSD and microHDMI port. Finally, we’ll be able to choose from a 16 or 32GB version of the Iconia A3.

    The A3 is running Jellybean 4.2 -- unskinned, as the company is careful to point out, save for a few subtle adjustments in the settings, so there's no messing with anything along the lines of TouchWiz here. Did I mention that I'm also excited to see the slate's IntelliSpin, which rotates the orientation of the screen, even when it's laid flat. Certainly a handy feature, that.
