Acer Iconia B

According to recent report on The Wall Street Journal it is claimed that Acer is planning to launch a new $99 Android tablet this month. We’re expecting Acer to showcase this low-cost Android tablet named Iconia B during the CES 2013, that begins Tuesday, January 8th.

The report on WSJ claims that Acer has designed the low-cost tablet to compete the off-brand tablets in developing countries. It is also said that the specs will be similar to that of the low-cost Kindle Fire, i.e., a 7-inch display with resolution of 1,024 x 600 pixels.

The Iconia B tablet is now featuring on Acer India website, where we came to know that the tablet will be powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and will run Android’s Jelly Bean version. The low-cost suggests that the tablet might have a NVIDIA’s inexpensive Tegra 3 under Kai program. It will also have a microSD slot for external storage of up to 32GB. Detailed information will be available once Acer will announce this tablet official.

WSJ also reports that Acer is also planning to launch a less expensive Windows 8 based tablet this year. Would you like you buy a low-cost Iconia B tablet from Acer? Share your opinions with us in comments below and stay tuned to know when the tablet launches.
