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

 

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

Acer Iconia B1 review

 

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

We originally reviewed the Acer Iconia B1 just over seven months ago, but things are moving very quickly at present for mobile devices, including budget tablets. The B1 can now be bought for as little as £90 online (from Argos) and that price drop has...

Acer Iconia B1 review

 

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

The rest of the Iconia B1 is fairly unremarkable. Unlike its big brother, the B1 uses a standard version of Android's Jelly Bean 4.1.2, not the latest 4.2.2. This leaves the B1 feeling a little dated by comparison, and we missed features such as...

Acer Iconia B1-750

 

Great value, LESS than half the price of last tablet, easy to handle and. Very light, hardly know it is in bag.

Had a nexus for last two years and find this is a bit slower to respond than the nexus. Still haven't worked out how to view or change view of emails. Possibly I'm making comparisons to nexus too much as it is just different.
