Review Acer Iconia B1-A71 Tablet


A real bargain. Acer launched a real bargain at CES 2013 in Las V

Low weight; Appropriate performance; Decent battery life; Unrivaled price

Unstable casing; Simple materials; Mediocre brightness; Uneven illumination

That it took so long to create an affordable tablet that is not a joke.

Acer Iconia Tab B1 Review


In the now rather vast array of tablet devices to be found in the Indian market, manufacturers need to be sure that what they've got to offer isn't identical to what's already out there. They've also got to struggle to keep the price just right for the...

The price tag on the Acer Iconia Tab B1 is Rs 7999, which makes it a little too high-priced for what it has to offer. Other than a decent audio player that will require a further investment upward of Rs 650, the tablet is quite minimal in the features...

Acer Iconia B1-A71 hands-on


For the past few months most of the tablets we've seen have been running Windows 8, but at CES this week Android tablets have seen a resurgence of sorts, starting with two from Vizio and now the Iconia B1-A71 from Acer. It's hardly a flagship tablet....

First Acer Iconia B1 previews surface


The Acer Iconia B1 is one of the most exciting devices we expect to see at CES not just for its specs which are rather mediocre but for its unmatched price tag. The 7-inch tablet is expected to hit retail shelves with a base price of around $149.

On the downside, though, the Iconia B1 is said to have a mediocre TN display with poor viewing angles. The pixel density is as much as on the iPad mini so we would not really hold it for a downside given that Acer’s tablet costs less than half Apple’s...

Acer Iconia B1 review


The Acer Iconia B1 Android tablet is expected to be announced at CES 2013 in a matter of hours and yet it already seems to have popped up, as reviewed by one site in Bulgaria.

The one detail that would be good to know for sure is the price. As it stands, benchmarks aren't all that much to go by, and the Iconia B1 might still be a tough sell against Apple and Google with a reported price of around £150. Early word from the...

Acer Iconia B1 review


This budget tablet was always part of Acer's B-team, and it's now outgunned by far superior rivals

Our biggest concern, though, is the price. At £150, the B1 is only £10 cheaper than a 16GB Google Nexus 7 (2012) and it doesn't do nearly enough to make itself stand out from the crowd. The microSD card slot is useful, but the tablet's mediocre screen...

Hands-on: A £99 Android tablet that's out to lure-in prospective Nexus 7 buyers.

Is £99 a low enough price to make you forget those screen woes? Drop us a comment with your view below.

Acer Iconia B1-A71 review - Hands on


At first glance it's fairly obvious that this is a basic device. The black glossy plastic body with its blue detail is hardly classy. On the plus side it's very light at just 320g (20g lighter than the Google Nexus 7), which is handy if you want to...

With the excellent Google Nexus 7 available for just £129, you'd have to be fairly cash-strapped to opt for the Acer Iconia B1-A71, but £30 isn't to be sniffed at, and there will be those who prefer the optional 32GB of extra storage via microSD. That...
