Quite cheap Acer Iconia A3 is a 10" Android tablet for 7" money
Thrilling stuff

Completing Acer's pre-IFA product announcement deluge is the Iconia A3, a 10-inch Android Jelly Bean slate.

It hasn't exactly set the TechRadar office aflame with passion, being as it is a pretty standard looking Android tablet with a quad-core 1.2GHz A7 processor, IPS display, Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth 4.0 and so on and so forth.

Money talks

The biggest news is the tablet's price tag: the A3 will only set you back from €249, that's about £211 and basically makes it a 10-inch tablet for 7-inch money.

Obviously, you'll pay more for 3G (€299 and up) and the 32GB version will cost more than the 16GB.

There's no word of the tablet making its way over to the US but it will be coming to the UK, Europe, the Middle East and Africa in early October.

It's a perpetual challenge among the TechRadar staff to send Kate (Twitter, Google+) a link to something interesting on the internet that she hasn't already seen. As TechRadar's News Editor (UK), she's constantly on the hunt for top news and intriguing stories to feed your gadget lust. And having been immersed in the world of tech and tech rumours for more than six years, she can spot a photoshopped iPhone 8 image from 20 paces.
