Updated budget Acer Android tablets will appear at CES 2014
Acer will be adding to its Iconia tablet range with two updated models, the company has revealed. The revised Iconia A1-830 and Iconia B1-720, upgraded from the earlier Iconia A1and B1 respectively, will be joined at CES next week by the revised C720P Chromebook, an updated model of the touchscreen noteboook the company revealed in late November, though with some slight changes.
Iconia B1 to have similar specifications to Kindle Fire
Acer is reportedly gearing up to release a sub-$100 tablet at the start of 2013, cheaper than devices made by the company already on the market. The Iconia B1 will allegedly be an Android tablet with a seven-inch, 1024x600-resolution screen, a 1.2GHz processor, and similar specifications to the Amazon Kindle Fire, with its $99 price tag aimed at penetrating emerging markets rather than the US.
