IconiaTab7-Thumb

Today at its "A Touch More Connected" launch event in New York, Acer pulled the curtain off a plethora of new electronics. Most of them were Windows products, but a couple are here for those who would prefer something running Android: the Iconia Tab 7 and the Iconia One 7. Neither product is particularly powerful, and the latter gives consumers another One product to keep up with.

The Iconia Tab 7 has an unspecified quad-core processor, a 1280x800 display, a microSD card slot, and up to 6 hours of battery life. It comes with 3G connectivity and a fresh serving of KitKat. It will hit Europe, Africa, and the Middle East for a starting price of €149 sometime in May. Afterwards, the gadget will come to Latin American at the end of June for at least $1,990 MX Peso.

The Iconia One 7 is powered by an Intel Atom Z2560 processor. It has a 1280x800 IPS display and a microSD card slot. Consumers will be looking at 7 hours of battery life when picking up the Android 4.2-powered product, which will be upgradeable to KitKat. It should cost a minimum of €139 when it hits Europe, Africa, and the Middle East in the middle of May, and it will go for a starting price of $129.99 when it lands in the Americas a month later.

Neither of these devices are going to be particularly pretty to look at with only a 1280x800 display, but at the price, that might just be acceptable. Unfortunately in this industry, acceptable can be quite a loaded word.

    Move along folks. This is not the tablet you are looking for.

      Unspecified quad-core processor. ;)

      LOL.

  • Deckard_Cain

    Yay, more cheap tablets that Intel is subsidizing to try to kill their competition!

  • Brad

    I wonder if it'll port to the iconia i idiotically bought a couple of years ago

    "I'm thinking about getting a One."
    "The One is old and out dated."
    "Not that One."
    "The OnePlus One?"
    "No..."
    "The One M8?"
    "No, although that's a nice One. I mean the Acer Iconia One."
    "... just get a Nexus 7."

      Go ahead and find a Nexus 7 on any retail store on Brazil.

      • Matthew Fry

        Fly me to Brazil and I'll try :)

          HAHA nice comeback, but I'm broke. If I had enough money, I'd just buy the Nexus 7 from Amazon or Ebay and find a way to ship it here.

    Yay, another pair of forgettable Acer tablets that nobody in their right mind should waste money on. I bet even Acer has already forgotten about them like they do with all of their other Android tablets.
