Acer Iconia B1-A71, The $150 Tablet

 |  |  |  |  January 18, 2013


Don’t get me wrong, I love my iPad, but it is quite an expensive device. The iPad Mini isn’t that much cheaper, at about $150 less for the similarly-specced version. Then again, you could always get Acer’s new Android tablet, which will set you back only $150 (USD).

It was initially thought that Acer’s B1-A71 would cost less than $100, but $150 is still pretty cheap. That’s the price of a pair of good sneakers, making it very affordable. The tablet has a 7-inch WSVGA (1024×600) display, which is powered by a Mediatek 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. It will ship running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and has access to the hundreds of thousands of apps available from Google Play. It comes with 8GB of internal storage, 512MB of RAM, and a microSD card slot. The front-facing camera is 0.3MP, which isn’t great, but should suffice for video chats. Wireless connectivity is 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0, and there’s no cellular data option, though.

Acer has announced that it the B1-A71 will be available at the end of January 2013.
