Acer to slash price of its 7.9 inch slate to $149.99 to compete with Apple iPad mini?
We're not talking about a laughable $25 or $50 off. Nope. According to the speculation, the price cut being considered by Acer would take the tablet from $249.99 to $149.99 Acer's A1-810 will be manufactured by Wistron starting later in April and the number of units produced will rise each month.
Acer originally expected to ship 5 million tablets this year, but with the strong sales of its B1 line, Acer President Jim Wong says that the company has a shot at shipping 10 million units. The Acer Iconia B1 accounted for 75% of the manufacturer's Q1 tablet shipments, which rose a tremendous 260% to 300% from Q4 of 2012 to Q1 of 2013.
