Acer Announces Iconia B1-A71 Seven-Inch Tablet
Just a little earlier today we’ve told you about the seven-incher made by Acer, getting an early review of a prototype, and now the company has made the Iconia B1 tablet official at CES 2013. However, the price mentioned in that earlier bit doesn’t seem to reflect the reality as, according to the official press release, the slate will arrive with a starting price less than $150.
As far as specs are concerned, the Iconia B1-A71 runs Android Jelly Bean and is powered by Mediatek’s dual-core MTK 8317T 1.2GHz processor. The screen is one of seven-inches with a resolution of 1,024 x 600 and there are 8GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card). Radio offers WiFi 802.11 b/g/n capabilities alongside Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS. There is only one camera on the tablet, just like on its competitor, the Nexus 7, and it’s one of 0.3-megapixels, on the front. The battery is rated at 2,710 mAh and the slate weighs 320 grams.
