Acer stormed New York earlier today by announcing a slew of notebooks and tablets. The 7-inch Acer Iconia B1 Android tablet, however, is heading for Europe, Middle East, and Africa.
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.
