Acer's Iconia B1 Android Tablet Outed

Acer's unannounced 7-inch Iconia B1 tablet has been leaked due to a Federal Communications Commission profile on the device.

A leaked document confirms that the device will sport a Mediatek dual-core processor, accompanied by 512 MB of RAM and 8 GB of storage. Comparatively, Google's Nexus 7 boasts a quad-core processor. The Iconia B1 itself is expected to have Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean as its OS.

Similar to the signature 'Loop' button on the Nook slate, the Iconia B1 bears a resemblance to the original Barnes & Noble Nook tablet due to the colored home button situated on the device's bottom left corner.

It's inevitable that Acer's Iconica B1 will launch at CES during January. If it doesn't appear at the event, it should make its debut at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February.

    Will THG ever do something about the joke of a picture 'zoom ?

    Two levels of zoom and still the same small picture where you can't read the details.

    Sad, so very sad.

    512MB of RAM? 8GB of storage? Are you SERIOUS? Great, another weak tablet...who wants that crap? Is it that much more costly for Acer to release an entry level tablet with reasonable entry level specs. Its about to be 2013 .

    Yeah, better cost like $50.
