Android-powered tablets are dime a dozen in the market these days, and there should be a model to suit just about every single need and taste. The thing is, which particular model should you decide to purchase when the time comes? Acer has not exactly been a huge player in this department, but their entry level model has been a decent performer. The $130 Iconia B1-720 was in January earlier this year, and there is a new Acer Iconia One 7 model that is well on its way after passing the rigors of the FCC this week.
Apart from that, the Acer Iconia One 7 has also appeared in the FutureMark benchmark site recently, not to mention getting some coverage from the press over in Taiwan last month. As for the hardware specifications, the Acer Iconia One 7 is pretty much a “plain Jane” model, sporting a 7” 1024 x 600 pixel TFT LCD display, a dual-core 1.5GHz VIA WonderMedia WM8880 ARM Cortex-A9 CPU, ARM Mali-400MP2 graphics, 1GB RAM, 16GB of internal memory with a microSD memory card slot, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean in tow, 802.11n WiFi connectivity, a VGA camera in front and a 1.9MP rear camera, all powered by a 3,000mAh battery.
There is no word on US pricing details just yet, but it should not cost more than $150 a pop.
