Acer Iconia B1 appears ready to make the trip to CES before getting shipped to India
The Acer Iconia B1 had briefly appeared on Acer's website until some wet blanket realized that it shouldn't have put up yet, and took it down. Still, the posting of the tablet did give us a chance to find out some of the specs. We are, of course, talking about a 7 inch display with resolution of 1024 x 600 and pixel density of 170ppi. Powering the device will be a dual-core 1.2GHz processor under the hood. 512MB of RAM is on board and there is 8GB of native storage that can be expanded using the microSD slot. Amid all of these uninspiring specs, Android 4.1 is pre-installed out of the box.

Sounds like you're buying stuff according to the number of cores, lol.
Usually the question is "How much?"...

Nexus 7 costs 16 GB used to cost 19000 INR (around 350 us dollars) at India so if this acer tablet is released in India for 8000 rupees it would be unfair to compare it with nexus 7. This tablet has pretty good specifications for its price atleast in India.

would it really run on 512 mb ram ? even the system jellybean itself could take a lot of memory

Good to have such low cost tab and if any variant comes with calling feature it would be a sure hit.

512 ram is a no GO for me ....JB takes a lot of RAm....at least 350-400 mb of ram will b used up by system....1GB should be the minimum requirement these days ...
