Acer to Introduce $99 Tablet: The Best Android Tab?


Having second thoughts about buying an iPad? Didn’t get that tablet you wanted for Xmas? Well, Acer is on the verge of introducing its first $99 tablet. The Wall Street Journal says the device has been dubbed the Iconia B1, and will make its debut in early 2013.

PC Mag Reports:

The gadget will sport a 7-inch, 1,024-by-600 display and a 1.2-GHz dual-core processor, the Journal said. Specs will be similar to the Kindle Fire $199.00 at Amazon or Nook Color.

Acer, however, is likely eyeing Chinese consumers rather than those in the U.S. The Journal said the Taiwan-based Acer needs to go up against the no-name Android tablets that are much more popular in China than they are in the states.

Still, the device has been submitted to the Federal Communications Commission for approval.
