Acer launches all-new Iconia tablet
Dubai, January 9, 2013
Acer, a leading hardware and electronics corporation, has launched its all-new Iconia B1-A71 tablet targeted at young or new users and families looking for an additional tablet for their children.
The Iconia B1 is also ideal for busy individuals seeking a convenient mobile companion, a statement from the company said. At 7 inches – the same size as a standard book page - the display is comfortable for e-reading, web browsing, playing games and watching videos.
The tablet is easy to hold and use in one hand, a triangular corner grip on the lower left side improves single-hand usage. It weighs 320 grams, making it one of the lightest 7-inch tablets in the market, the statement said.
It combines a 1.2GHz dual-core processor for fast and smooth gaming, web browsing and video watching with Android’s Jelly Bean operating system. For many search queries performed through VoiceSearch, users can now hear a spoken answer.
Over 500 free online magazines from hundreds of publishers and top web sites are available thanks to Google Currents, it said. The recently-updated smart mobile app allows the user to discover, read, and share favorite new outlets, blogs and online magazines on the 7-inch WSVGA (1,024 x 600) capacitive display – even when offline.
The Iconia B1 comes with a front-facing camera on the top right corner and works also when in landscape mode.
Available as 8GB version with the option to expand via microSD slot, the Iconia B1 is the ideal easy companion for tablet newbies or children while adults use their own, the statement said.
The new Iconia B1 expands the Acer tablet family now offering three 10-inch Android, two 7-inch Android, one 11” Windows 8 and one 10-inch Windows 8 Hybrid Tablets. – TradeArabia News Service
