Acer is reported to start manufacturing a tablet that will fit individuals in developing countries who desire a Windows 8 experience. It has been stated that this tablet will be released in the new year and feature a 7-inch 1024 x 600 screen, and a 1.2Ghz dual-core processor.

Some analysts are claiming that this will compete with the Amazon Kindle Fire HD in which the two really do not fathom one another. Keep in mind this Acer tablet will retail for $99 while the Kindle Fire goes for $199.

Asus has released to the public that they will not be releasing a $99 tablet as their current tablet running Android 4.1 retails for $199. Also, the Nexus 7, made by ASUS, is a huge competitor is the current tablet market as it’s size and performance are not like any other.

It is seeming that 2013 will be the year of providing users more options when buying electronics. Could too many options ruin profit of companies trying to expand into more regions?
