Acer did not stop with the Iconia A1. Apparently there's a B-side to the tablet as well. The Iconia B1, according to Acer, is designed and made for first time tablet users. The next generation tablet now comes with Wi-Fi and 3G, and its performance has been improved as well. There's even an optional protection case and film that offers additional protection.
Sporting a 7-inch display, the Iconia B1 is powered by either a 1.2GHz dual-core or quad-core processor. That's because Acer is planning to launch different versions of the tablet soon. There's also a 1GB RAM, a front-facing camera, and 8GB or 16GB storage options. Of course, users can opt to extend that space by using the tablet's microSD slot.
Acer says that the Wi-Fi only model will be available in Europe, Middle East and Africa sometime in June at a starting price of €129. The 3G model, on the other hand, will be available in Europe, Middle East and Africa by the end of July at a starting price of €179.

If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
