This year’s MWC is underway for a couple of days already, and, to be quite frank, we’re pretty disappointed with the lack of action in Barcelona. There have only been a handful of exciting new gadgets introduced to the world and even those were more or less known to the public before the show.
Acer, for instance has jumped the gun last week with the mid-range Liquid E1 and Z2 smartphones and has earlier today taken the wraps off a new version of the Iconia B1. Besides the boosting of the on-board storage from 8 to 16 GB, there’s nothing new here, meaning you get the same old 7-inch 1,024 x 600 pix res display, dual-core 1.2 GHz MediaTek CPU, 512 MB of RAM, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and 2,710 mAh battery.
Pretty lame spec sheet, we know, but at least the pricing is right – €139 ($180) for the 16 GB model in Europe. Middle Asia and Africa are to get the slate besides the old continent any day now, while US is on standby.
