Acer's recently-outed 7-inch tablet, the Android-powered Iconia B1, is apparently priced at $99, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The site said it's spoken to a source with direct knowledge of the Iconia B1 project being developed by the PC manufacturer. In addition to revealing a $99 price tag, the source added that the tablet will feature a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and a 7-inch 1024 x 600 display.
Also rumored is 512 MB of RAM and 8 GB of storage, while Google's Nexus 7, which is priced at $199 and may reach as low as the $99-$150 range, sports a quad-core processor.
The Iconia B1 is expected to run on Google's Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean operating system, with an expected unveiling scheduled for CES.
