Acer Iconia B1, the $ 99 tablet could be the next Nexus

Acer Iconia B1, the $ 99 tablet could be the next Nexus

It seems that the barrier of $ 100 is proposed various manufacturers to bring technology to the masses. A few days ago we talked about Google’s Chromebooks for $ 99 focused the education sector in the coming months will the Acer Iconia B1, the tablet will cost $ 99, and that could ally with itself.

This was made ​​known to The Wall Street Journal . plans in 2013 is getting an advantage in the market with which to establish itself as an alternative in the tablet market, which is expected to continue its growth, to be the choice for those who are interested in taking one, but not pay what they cost now, even the cheapest or best value / price, as is the case with the Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire HD . Chosen for this mission would be the Acer Iconia B1.

However, plans not end here for Acer Iconia B1. For this price, with very limited specifications, yes-it would be a very strong candidate to become the new Google tablet that Acer would debut as an ally to the range that ensures pure Android experience without the tedious layers Customization manufacturers. As early as last October, there was talk of the possibility that Google would respond to the iPad mini with a Nexus at $99 . The specifications of the Acer Iconia B1 are:

  • 7 inch
  • Resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels
  • Mediatek processor dual-core 1.2 GHz to
  • 512 MB RAM
  • Internal memory of 8 GB
  • Micro-SD Slot
  • Jelly Bean Android 4.1.2
  • Bluetooth 4.0

Clearly Google’s interests to go through to get better the more users its services centralized in Gmail. Now I do not think it’s a good brand image to potential buyers consistently win with the argument that it is very cheap, as will be the star with the Acer Iconia B1. Okay diversify and offer solutions to different needs and budgets, but sometimes I miss that Google gives sledgehammer as he found the Nexus 4 , which costing as a midrange, is a high-end all the way, with LG has improved its portfolio. To end the alliance with Acer Iconia B1, Google is lowering the bar too to get into many homes. And blurring the good work with Nexus 4 (distribution issues aside), Nexus 7 or Android 4.2.
