Acer Iconia A1-840 HD, 8" Tablet, 16GB in Silver (£44.50 with Boost) £89 at Tesco direct

Found 11th Nov 2015
Looking for an alternative to the Fire and this looked a good bet with the boost option (£44.50) 8" decent screen, 16gb memory on board, 1gb RAM, better resolution camera and not tied to the Amazon app store.

good price if you have the money on the card.

Much better buy than 8gb for £74 hot

Been looking for a kids tablet since the HUDL2 was dropped, have gone for this, hopefully it wou't disappoint!

It's 2gb ram not 1

Well if it's the same 1 as mine, mine stated 1gb ram on website but came with 2gb

Even better if that's the case although it did state 1gb in the description

HDMI port?

I think so, it's not in the Tesco description but looking at the Amazon reviews it seems it has. Delivery will be next week, will update then

The Hudl 2 does not appear to have been dropped - it's still available: tesco.com/dir…ner

So according to the Tesco website it's 1024x768 and 1GB RAM, but the Acer website has it as 1920x1200 and 2GB RAM: acer.co.uk/ac/…003 (click on 'View full datasheet').

Can anyone confirm which is correct?

EDIT: got resolution wrong

That link didn't take me anywhere. I searched for HUDL and it took me to this page, all the info is there but I can't see any link to buy tesco.com/dir…dl/

Click on the big picture of the Hudl in the middle of the page (with the camper van as the background) - should take you straight there.

Thanks, I got it. Not included in the Boost promotion though unfortunately. Spoke to customer services and no plans to add the boost to the HUDL's as there is only limited stock

I've ordered three using the boost as Xmas presents for my children (the pitfalls of having three). We were looking at getting the HUDL2 using the boost but that's gone pear shaped.

If it's 1gb it will do fine but hoping for the 2gb model tbh (like Antos received)

I noticed there are two versions of this tablet with similar names...

A1-840HD (NT.L6FEE.003) - this is one Tesco advertise.
acer.co.uk/ac/…003

A1-840FHD (NT.L4JEE.003) - this is the 2gb one with 1920 resolution

I have just placed an order for one as well.

The Tesco specifications are definitely not completely accurate, as they quote the resolution as 1024x768, which neither model has.

The title however states 'A1-840 HD', which implies that it is the FHD model.

I'm going to call them to verify which model the tablet is. If it is indeed the non-HD version, I am going to cancel my order and get a Chuwi Hi8.

TBH I don't think they will know. I'll wait for it to arrive and if it's pants I can always return it. Knowing my luck I'll get 2 of 1 and 1 of the other....

The advisor took a few minutes to investigate, then concluded that I will receive the A1-840 with 1GB of RAM.

I will wait and see what arrives (in a week's time).

Sorry everyone, I cancelled the order. Decided that 8" is too small, so I picked up the Alba 10" from Argos this weekend.

The Acer is also on KitKat with no sign of an upgrade, which shows that this product is another money grab Android tablet with no further support from Acer to be expected. Don't get me wrong, the Alba one will be just the same, but I'd rather be stuck with the latest Android iteration.

Good luck guys and gals.

Just to update everyone. It is indeed the 1gb version that arrived.

Still decent enough for my kids.

Yes, same for me, it is for a 7 year old who will be more than happy with it, first impressions are really good though, it's a nice tablet

Good to know. Anyone know what the max sd card size we can add (gb wise)
