Changed to # While stocks last # on cart now, so guessing last few.. 8//12//17

Saw the 8gb version in blue on HUKD and remembered this one had the 16GB rom and was in White!

In stock, ordered one 55 mins ago.

This is the one Tesco Direct are selling:

Also think that this model has GPS as well.

* Not too sure how to answer or add to each of the comments at once, so for anyone interested...

This model is £90 in argos and was in tesco for £80 [still £49! today]
This model has in fact got GPS.
This model WILL take a 128gb/256gb microSD card [sandisk tried]
This model has the later [may 2016] MT8193 quad core cpu in it.
This model is nothing like a 2011 / 2012 tablet with 1gb ram in it.
This model has had 2 x android updates, one in dec 2016 & one
in may 2017.

This model is not an iPad 12.9" pro and is not £850!

This model is fifty quid...

Only 1gb Ram but still a good price

If this thing runs anything like the a500 they built a few years back I'd avoid it like the plague .

Can u not get a fire hd for the same money lol

It doesn't! The quad cpu is nothing like the dual core nvidia junk they churned out :-)

The 1GB ddr3 ram is also more than enough to run marshmallow / apps very fluidly. This is £79 everywhere else, hence why we got one as it is cheap but not cheap like the Lenovo's with similar spec.

​Without the android app store "lol'

This will be a very slow tablet the 10 inch acer had 2gb and it's slow!

Battery is terrible/poor camera/slow boot up and will it get any Android updates?

Will this not eat at your CPU and Memory though, these hacks are useful but usually have to run constantly to play apps and slows down the system alot!!

It's not worth 49 quid it's crap

Looks like garbage, I'd avoid this unless it was a tenner.

You can load the Google Play Store on manually. Its not hard.

Absolutely not, hacks don't run all the time it's just a way of getting it on there then it's done.

I have this and the 10 inch one that cost me £60.00 and £119 respectively. Bought these for the kids for their birthday. The 10 inch one developed a crack on the screen in a split second as my son attempted to close the tablet case. This was exactly a year and a day after purchase and the guarantee only covered for a year. The acer guys said it would take £60 to get the screen fixed
The 7 inch luckily developed a crack 3 days before the guarantee expired (also within a year)so got it fixed. Again, no pressure was applied. Don't know the reason for the crack at all.So, if you buy this be prepared for it to last only a year and no more. I would prefer a lenovo to this. Also the camera results isn't really any good either. Sad!

Still using an older Acer B1-850 8" tablet for some gaming apps which I see they are still selling this for £89. Well made and reliable device although Acer have only updated the OS once since I've had it, compared to a more recent ASUS tablet I have which they regularly update.

Not a bad price not and 16G store is certainly better than 8G on some models which it useless unless you spend extra on a memory card

Android devices with 1GB of RAM are essentially useless, and not worth buying any more. My first tablet, bought it 2011 (!), had 1GB of RAM. Time to move on.

1GB ram only, won't last long at all once you're normal apps are loaded
Might be fine if all you do is through google chrome, but keeping facebook, playing games etc this will be terrible

1GB was enough 10 years ago, it's 2017 and minmum should be 2GB

These are awful devices - am selling one now because it's so slow/laggy

Acer you say, No you're alright I say

Fine price for a child to hop off the floor around Christmas though

Cold. Old tech that was naff when it came out. I would suggest getting a fire tablet for same price.

Sadly the android tablet scean is a bit lacking at the moment.

My grandma's phone has better specs then this tablet

I'd go for a second hand Nexus 7 2013 (Black trim, no silver,) from CeX. Probably about £60 but you get a warranty and 2GB ram, FHD screen, wireless charging, Good CPU/GPU. I've bought 5 of these over the last 3 years and they are all still running without issue.

Actually....! I bought the £109 Amazon Fire 10 last week, and it was pretty quick and easy to install Google Play, so it now has the whole Android catalogue. I didn't have to root it, just download 4 files in order. It takes about three minutes and it turns a £109 Amazon fire into (effectively) a £200+ general purpose Android tablet.

Here's the instructions.

I was a bit apprehensive about other ways of doing this, that involve changing the firmware, but this just runs happily on the Amazon desktop

? This is 2017?

Had an Acer tablet...after a year it wouldn't boot up and I had to throw out. Not saying they're all the same but do a google search and seems a known issue.

Reviews Say poor performing CPU

If it could use a mobile sim card then it really would be a bargain

Lol add APKs via ES File or SDcard to Fire devices and not through installing 3rd party playstores

Dual core processor and 1GB, No thanks.
