Acer announces new Android tablets: Iconia One 7 and Iconia Tab 7 (with phone functionality)
The Acer Iconia One 7 is the cheapest among the two, and you'll be able to buy it in various color options, including black, red, white, blue and pink. It offers a 7-inch LED-backlit IPS display with 800 x 1280 pixels, a dual-core 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2560 processor, 1GB of RAM, microSD card support, and a battery that can last up 7 hours. There’s also a 5MP rear camera on the back, plus a secondary camera on the front. The tablet runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean at the moment, but Acer will update it to KitKat at some point.
According to Acer, the Iconia One 7 will be first available starting mid-May in Europe, Middle East and Africa, costing €139. The slate will also be launched in North America, Central America and South America at the end of June, for $129.99.
Presented by Acer as “the marriage of the two most used consumer devices - a tablet and phone”, the Iconia Tab 7 obviously offers phone functionality, as well as 3G. It will run Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box, further featuring: a 7-inch IPS display with 800 x 1280 pixels, a quad-core processor of unknown speed and provenience, microSD card slot, and up to 6 hours of battery life. Rear and front-facing cameras are included, but Acer didn’t provide details about them.
Like the Iconia One 7, the Acer Iconia Tab 7 will be launched in mid-May across Europe, Middle East and Africa, where it's going to cost around €149. It looks like the Tab 7 won’t be released in the US, although customers in Latin America will be able to get it starting June.
