Acer’s latest low-cost Android tablet, the Iconia B1, was first seen in December. Now it looks like the device is ready to be launched as the Iconia B – at least in India, where it should debut before the end of January.
According to NDTV, the Acer Iconia B will cost 7,999 INR in India. That’s about $147 – hence $50 less than the price of Google’s Nexus 7 (which is manufactured by Asus).
As previously reported, the Iconia B runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, and features: a 7 inch display with 1024 x 600 pixels, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, 1.2GHz dual-core MediaTek processor, just 512MB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support. The tablet weighs 320 grams.
The Iconia B has appeared for a brief moment over at Acer’s official website, but now it’s no longer there, so we can only see it via Google Cache.
India aside, Acer will probably release the Iconia B in other markets pretty soon. We’ll bring more details as soon as we get them.
