Acer is certainly no stranger to the tablet market, with something like 2,172 devices – both Android and Windows – on the market already.
They’re squeezing along to make room for #2,173, namely the Acer Iconia B1-A71, notable for its wallet-friendly price tag (and rubbish name).
The Acer Iconia B1-A71 was rumoured last month, and tipped to have a $99 asking price. Okay, it’s not that cheap, but “less than $150” is still pretty reasonable.
Of course, you get what you pay for, and as such Acer Iconia B1-A71 specs are suitably modest. Don’t expect a quad-core processor and 3GB of RAM here.
Instead, you’re looking at a 7in display (1024 x 600), 8GB internal storage (augmentable via microSD), 512MB of RAM, a dual-core Mediatek processor at 1.2GHz, and a front facing 0.3MP camera.
As for Acer Iconia B1-A71 pricing and availability, Acer says only that it’ll be available at under $150. No specific mention of the UK just yet. Bothered?
