Rumors are rumors, and while they might be juicy, they are not necessarily going to turn out to be true, and it is a hit-or-miss affair. Of course, it is nice to populate the news pages with what’s coming from different hardware manufacturers from time to time, but it would be better if there was an accurate release, no? Well, you would have to take the following with a grain of salt again, where it seems that Asus might be launching a $99 tablet that will be known as the Iconia B1, although one would wonder whether such a tablet would cannibalize on the Google Nexus 7 tablet, which is manufactured by Asus considering the hardware specifications that one find inside the Iconia B1.

Rumored specifications of the Acer Iconia B1 7” tablet include a resolution count of 1024 x 600, which is similar to what you would find on the BlackBerry PlayBook, alongside a pixel density of 170ppi. Whispers also abound that there will be a 1.2GHz processor there alongside a SIM card slot for you to enjoy mobile data connectivity, and should it arrive with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on board, the Google Nexus 7, Amazon Kindle Fire and iPad mini might want to look back over their shoulders.
