Google’s Nexus 7 and Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD are probably some of the more cheaper Android tablets available, at least as far as big brands are concerned (there are a ton of cheap Android tablets from smaller manufacturers as well), and it looks like Acer wants to join in the party with their own offering, the B1-A71 Android tablet which they have priced at a very affordable $150. We first heard about the B1 last month when it was speculated that Acer could be pricing it at $99, but hey, $150 isn’t too bad either! So what will customers be getting for their money? For starters customers can look forward to a 7” WSVGA (1024×600) display powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core MediaTek processor, 8GB of internal storage, 512MB of RAM a microSD card slot, a 0.3MP front-facing camera with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on board. Not the best specs we’ve seen to date, but for $150 it will be more than capable of getting the job done. No word on availability just yet, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled anyway.
