10-inch tablets were considered the s…tuff not long ago, but ever since Amazon introduced the Kindle Fire and Google and Asus came out with the Nexus 7, everything turned around for 7-inchers. And what’s not to like at a portable gadget with a more than decent spec sheet and an ultra-low price?
Naturally, more and more manufacturers are looking to get a piece of the 7-inch tablet pie, so we’re not at all surprised to see Acer prepping a so-called Iconia B1 device. This is in no way official, but after getting FCC’s stamp of approval it’s bound to be released soon, maybe even after CES 2013 in January.
The spec sheet is not what you would call special, but at least it makes us hope the B1 will go for $150 tops. There’s a dual-core Mediatek processor in there, 512 MB of RAM, 8 GB of on-board storage, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, and microSD support. On top of these modest features there’ll however be Android 4.1 Jelly Bean “butter”, while the 7-inch display is set to come boasting a 1,024 x 600 pixels resolution. Not bad, but everything depends on the price.
