Excerpt: The 7-8″ tablet market is a rather competitive one, with Apple and Asus at the top of the pile. The iPad Mini and the Google Nexus 7 are undoubtedly the market leaders and there are many other manufacturers trying to […]
Conclusion: It’s hard to think of a single way in which the Iconia A1-810 could be called outstanding. The screen is fine, performance adequate and battery life perfectly acceptable.
