There was a time when Acer’s Android tablet lineup included premium models with high-resolution displays, speedy processors, and other high-end features. These days it seems like Acer is taking a different approach and aiming low.
A budget Android tablet called the Acer Iconia One 7 passed through the FCC this week.
Update: It looks like there may be multiple models. In addition to the ARM-based version featured below, a second model with an Intel processor hit the FCC recently.
- 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel TFT LCD display
- 1.5 GHz VIA WonderMedia WM8880 dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU
- ARM Mali-400MP2 graphics
- 1GB RAM
- 16GB storage + microSD card slot
- Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
- 802.11n WiFi (no Bluetooth or GPS)
- 1.9MP rear camera and 0.3MP front camera
- 3000mAh battery
US pricing hasn’t been announced, but based on the specs and overseas pricing I’d expect to see the Acer Iconia One 7 sell for somewhere between $99 to $149.
