Acer Tab 7 is a new ultra-cheap Android Jelly Bean tablet


The tablet seen above is called Acer Tab 7, and is the Taiwanese company’s latest cheap Android slate. It’s even cheaper than the Iconia A1-830, which was announced by Acer at CES 2014 and should hit shelves for only $149.99.

Unveiled in China, the Acer Tab 7 is a tad smaller than the Iconia A1-830, as its display only measures 7 inches, not 7.9 inches. The pixel resolution is also lower: 600 x 1024. The new tablet runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, weighs 289 grams, it’s 9.9m-thin, and looks decent for a budget device. The rest of its features include: a seemingly old dual-core 1.5GHz ARM Cortex A9 processor (probably made by MediaTek), 1GB of RAM, 1.9MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, Micro USB, Micro HDMI, MicroSD card slot, 8GB of internal memory, and a 3,000 mAh battery.

Chinese retailer JD is already selling the Acer Tab 7 for about $99. We don’t know if Acer is planning to release the new tablet in other markets - but it might, seeing how ultra-cheap slates from well-known companies are gaining ground (Samsung, for example, is supposed to launch a $130 Galaxy Tab 3 Lite in the near future).
