Now that was fast. Acer unveiled the Iconia B1 tablet a few weeks ago at CES and said it’ll go on sale “soon,” which usually means anything but that, but the 7-incher is in fact up for grabs already.

Well, it’s only available in the UK for now, but you know what they say – today in England, tomorrow all around the world. As expected, the tab’s number one selling point is the pricing. Tech-savvy blokes in GB looking to save up a buck before Valentine’s are therefore only asked to shell out £99 ($156).

That’ll get you a surprisingly snappy slate with a dual-core 1.2 GHz CPU and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, although the display, RAM and battery are not very hot. The 7-inch panel boasts a run-of-the-mill 1,024 x 600 pixels resolution, the 512 MB of RAM makes for a mediocre multitasking experience at best, while the 2,710 mAh “ticker” might let you down after only three or four hours of running time.

If all that’s not enough to make you want to keep your dough for something better, you can find the B1 at ASDA, Sainsbury’s and a couple of other UK retailers.
