Acer Iconia B1 Launched In India For Just Rs.7,999

Acer was already rumored to unveil an entry-level Android tablet in 2013. Last week, Acer finally announced the ultra-cheap Iconia B1 tablet at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013 in Las Vegas. With one week of its announcement, Acer went ahead and launched this affordable 7 inch tablet exclusively for the folks living in India.

Indian mobile phone manufacturers such as Micromax, HCL, Lava and Spice are already selling cheap Android tablets in India. However, Acer Iconia B1 is the first tablet from an international brand to be available in India at a price of sub-10,000. This device runs on the Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) Operating System out-of-the-box. You can find the complete specs below.

Acer Iconia B1 features a 7 inch display, sporting a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels, 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 0.3 megapixel front-facing camera for video calls, 512 MB DDR3 RAM, 8 GB internal memory, MicroSD card slot, 32 GB expandable memory, Google Play Store, WiFi 801.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0 and 2710 mAh battery. This device measures 196 x 126.5 x 11.4 mm and weighs 370 grams.

Acer Iconia B1 comes with a price-tag of just Rs.7,999 (approx. $150) in India. Yes, you heard it right! If you are looking for an entry-level Android tablet from an international brand, then your search should end at this device. However, the 0.3 megapixel front camera and pathetic battery are major disappointment.

Acer Unveils A $150 7-Inch Jelly Bean Tablet; Once Again Proves The Nexus 7 Is A Steal At $199

ASUS and Google are not the only one releasing ultra-cheap Android tablets. Today, Acer is also taking its shot at the ultra-cheap Android tablet market with its new Iconia tablet – the B1-A71 (Seriously, Acer? You could not come up with a better name?).

The Iconia B1 sports a 7-inch display with 1024 x 600 display, and is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Mediatek processor along with 8GB of internal memory and only 512MB of RAM. The 0.3MP camera in the front should be barely sufficient for video chatting. While the Mediatek processor is not really impressive, Jelly Bean should help in at least providing lag-free experience to users.  The killer feature of this 7-inch tablet, however, is its extremely cheap price of $150.

Acer is looking to hurt the sales of the ultra-cheap Android tablets from various Chinese OEMs with its new $150 tablet. However, if you can, spend the extra $50 and get the Nexus 7 from Google. For just $50 extra, the overall usability and experience jump from this Iconia B1 tablet to the Nexus 7 will be worth it.
