Acer unveiled the Iconia A1-830 at CES 2014 which costs $149.99 but they plan to attack the low-end tablet market with yet another offering which is even cheaper. Acer has unveiled the Tab 7 in China which costs $99.
The Acer Tab 7 looks quite good for a $99 tablet and it measures 9.9 mm thick and weighs 289 grams. It features a 7-inch display as the name suggests and it has a resolution of 1024 x 600 which is not too good but okay considering the price. It comes with a old dual-core 1.5 GHz ARM Cortex A9 processor and 1 GB of RAM. There’s 8 GB of internal memory along with microSD expansion.
On the rear there is a 1.9 MP camera and a VGA camera graces the front. There’s WiFi 802.11 b/g/n connectivity, Bluetooth, micro HDMI and micro USB slots are also present. Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is on-board and the tablet is powered by a quite modest 3000 mAh battery.
It is already up on sale in China but we have no clue yet if Acer will bring the cheap tablet to other markets especially the emerging markets considering cheap tablets are all rage there. We hope they do that because the Tab 7 is a great device for $99 although we hope there would be a bigger battery but hey they have to keep that price intact.
