Acer Iconia B1 tablet gets an official price tag, coming this month
The Acer Iconia B1 was officially unveiled during CES yesterday, thus becoming one of the most affordable Android tablets from a company that you actually might have heard of. And today, we finally learned how much exactly the device will cost, as well as when we might expect it to launch in certain parts of the world.

Customers in Europe will be able to purchase an Acer Iconia B1 for only €119. That's about $155 by today's exchange rate, which is just a little over the "under $150" price tag quoted yesterday. The tablet is also expected to go on sale across the Middle East and Africa. If all goes as planned, the Iconia B1 should hit the shelves in mid-January.

For those who need a refresher, the Acer Iconia B1 is a 7-inch Android 4.1 tablet with a 1024 by 600 pixel display, 512MB of RAM, and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. From a technical standpoint, it is quite inferior to its close competitors, such as the Google Nexus 7, but makes up for that by being significantly cheaper.

I don't get this price, for an additional 45 dollars you get an at least two times better hardware with the Nexus 7, who would buy this instead?
