Acer have announced their new A1, their take on the iPad mini form factor.

Powered by a quad-core MTK processor, the A1 features a 7.9" 1024x768 IPS screen, the same as Apple's smallest tablet.

The device, which weighs 410g and is 11.1m thick, is available in both WiFi and 3G versions. WiFi is of the 802.11b/g/n variety, while Bluetooth is version 4.0. A 5 megapixel rear-facing camera captures 1080p video at 30fps while a front-facing camera is available for video chats. microHDMI is included for video playback on the big screen.

8GB and 16GB versions will be available with the option to expand storage via microSD. The Iconia A1-810 (WiFi version) will be available end of May at a starting price of £149.99, the Iconia A1-811 (3G) version will be available end of July at a starting price of £209.99.

I can't say this really excites me...? How about you?

Not sure why they would expect anyone to get excited really. I'd go for their own B1 if I was in the market for a budget tablet, the specs aren't exactly worlds apart and with the £20 cash back offer Acer are running through May its almost half the price!

So I went to the Doctors yesterday. He said, "What appears to be the problem?". I said, "I keep having this dream, night after night, beautiful girls keep rushing towards me and I keep pushing them away." He said, "How can I help?" I said: "Break my arms."

According to GSMarena, it has no GPU... Also a nexus 7 is still a bit better for the price in my opinion, if you compare it at http://www.gsmarena....9&idPhone2=4850

Hello. I have an S4 now, and I hardly ever use MoDaCo now. 

Therefore you will receive no replies to any PMs

Please post in the forum instead. You will get more help there :)

:excl:A WARNING TO ALL G300 OWNERS! Please Read! (The Flash Memory Problem!) :excl:

Tutorial: How To (Officially) Unlock Your Bootloader! (The long way, but which definitely works)

Please, Do not use the HuaweiG300.com Tutorial on how to unlock your bootloader, it is better to unlock it officially with my tutorial!


My Device:

Huawei Ascend G300 (U8815) - Sold!

Samsung Galaxy S4 (Black) - The LTE Version - GT-I9505

(Ignore the links above (if there is one). It's a skimwords (advertising) link and nothing to do with me!)

The ROMS I have used:


Download Blink, a great app that controls the status LED on the G300!

Wait for 5 seconds and then click skip ad! Do not download anything in the ad window, that is not the app!

Did I help you?

If I did, Please press the rep_up1.png button, in the bottom right hand corner of my posts.

(If not, Press it anyway!)

If I really helped you, you could also donate to me. Thanks!  :)
