Acer iconia b1

After Acer’s budget Jelly Bean tablet was officially announced earlier in the month, it didn’t take long for the Taiwanese to bring the Iconia B1 – as it’s named – to the markets where it’ll have the potential to best no-name tabs and their often questionable after-sales service.

If you’re in Singapore, you can snag the Iconia B1 for S$199 (US$160). While the specs certainly don’t compare to the S$349 Nexus 7, the B1 makes a great and cheaper alternative for folks who don’t need all the extra horsepower. The 7-inch tablet is also up for grabs in Indonesia, where it’s currently being offered by retailer Bhinneka for US$135. Once the special promotion is over, the Iconia B1 will go for US$165.

Other countries in the region where the Iconia B1 has been launched include India. The B1 was launched there last week at Rs 7,999 (US$150). Those in Europe, Middle East, and Africa can expect to see the tab land this month for €119.

The Acer Iconia B1 boasts a 7-inch screen with a 1,024 x 600 resolution and is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz Mediatek MTK 8317T processor. It comes with 512MB of RAM, 8GB internal storage, a microSD slot (up to 32GB), 0.3MP front-facing camera, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
