A couple months after the Acer Iconia B1 was introduced into the world at the CES 2013, the 16GB is now made official at the MWC 2013 event in Barcelona. The tablet device is on immediate sale for the price of €139. The Iconia B1 has got in itself a 1.2 GHz processor from Mediatek, while the internal storage is of 16GB capacity. It is a 7-inch tablet device with the 1024 x 600 pixels of screen resolution, and there is a 0.3-megapixel camera on the front side.
The display included in the 7-inch touchscreen is a WSVGA one, and the capacitive touchscreen with a 1024 x 700 pixels which is pretty good as a display for producing neat output, the tablet device has got a plethora of connectivity options, with the Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and the Bluetooth 4.0 technology, along with the GPS but there is no option to insert a SIM card for data network connectivity.
With the large screen and processor, the battery of 2710 mAh capacity does seem quite less, but we cannot know the actual battery life until we get to see a hands-on. The Iconia B1 has got a 3.5mm headset jack, and apart from the storage of 16GB internally, there is an expansion possibility to 32GB using a MicroSD card.
The Acer Iconia B1-A71 tablet device 8GB version is already available since Mid-January at thep rice of €119, while the 16GB version of the Acer Iconia B1-A71 is priced at €139 and it would be available immediately now after the launch in Europe, Middle East and the African regions.
