It may seem that the mini tablet arena is fast becoming crowded. Amazon was the first major success in the arena, with its Kindle Fire lineup and then Google made it big with the Nexus 7 tablet. Now, Acer has announced a 7-inch Android Jelly Bean tablet, Iconia B1-A71, which will be made available for a price fo $150.
The price point of the 7-inch slate is exceptionally low which may entice quite a few users. However, what is noticeable is the fact that it packs a mere 8 GB of storage space. Nexus 7, in comparison, costs $199 for the 16GB version.
Moreover, other specifications of the Acer mini-tablet are also quite underwhelming. It packs a 1.2GHz dual-core processor together with 512 MB of RAM and a WSVGA display. Among the very few things that are exciting about this tablet is the fact that it runs Android Jelly Bean.
Iconia B1-A71 weighs 0.71 pounds and is 0.44 inches thick, both measurements being only modest as compared to other mini tablets in the market. However, for those who are looking for a basic tablet experience at the most affordable rates, the tablet will certainly make a great choice.
For now, Acer hasn’t divulged the availability details of the Iconic tablet. We’ll keep you posted as and when the company announces these details.
