Acer has just announced yet another tablet at it's New York Press Event, the Acer Iconia A1. The same Android tablet leaked by a French retailer a few weeks back. It's going on sale in the US later this month for $169 for the 8GB version. Yes you heard that right, $169! $199 for the 16GB version.

Spec-wise, it measures 11.1mm thick, runs a 1.2GHz quad-core processor from MediaTek, and is topped off by a 7.9-inch IPS display with 1,024 x 768 resolution. Pretty decent specs for a budget friendly tablet. It also has 8 or 16GB of internal storage, as well as built-in 3G.
