The yet-to-be-announced Acer Tab 7 budget Android tablet has been listed on a Chinese online retailer, retailing for a rather affordable 600 Chinese yuan, or roughly Rs. 6,000. Since the Acer tablet has been listed only on a Chinese retail website, the Acer Tab 7 for now seems to be a China-specific product at the moment, though official global launch plans can't yet be ruled out.
Spotted on JD.com by Phonearena, the Acer Tab 7 features a 7-inch screen with a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution and runs on the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS. The device is powered by a dual-core Cortex-A9 processor clocking at 1.5GHz and is paired with 1GB RAM.
The Acer Tab 7 includes a 3-megapixel rear camera and a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera, along with 8GB of in-built storage, which can be expanded up to 32GB via external microSD card.
Connectivity options included on the Acer Tab 7 are Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Micro-USB port with OTG functionality, and a 3.5mm audio jack. The battery capacity of the 7-inch tablet is 3,000mAh, which is said to give a backup of roughly 5 hours. The tablet is fairly sleek and measures 191 x 112 x 9.9 mm with a light weight of 289g.
Acer announced two new tablets ahead of CES 2014, the Iconia A1-830 and the Iconia B1-720, with 7.9-inch and 7-inch screens respectively. Running on Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean, the Iconia A1-830 is the more premium of the two tablets, with a 7.9-inch IPS display (768x1024 pixel), and an aluminium back on offer. The Iconia B1-720 costs $129.99 (roughly Rs. 8,000) and will hit North America later in January 2014, alongside an optional protective case. The tablet will run Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean out-of the-box and features a 7-inch OGS (One Glass Solution) with no details on resolution.
