Acer revealed the first of their B1 line of tablets at CES back in January, and just months later it looks like they’re ready to give it an upgrade. The update goes by the name B1-710, and it has just hit the FCC, meaning it may not be too long now before it’s available for purchase.
The specifications for this device are pretty modest, which is to be expected for a tablet at this price point. They go a little something like this:
- 7″ display 1200 x 600
- 1GB RAM instead of the 512MB of old
- 8GB/16GB storage with Micro SD slot included
- Dual-core processor (there will be a 3G version B1-711 that will sport a quad-core processor)
- Front-facing camera likely has the same 0.3 megapixels of old
- B1-710 is Wi-Fi only
- Android 4.2
Doesn’t sound like anything special, but for a low price of £110 and £129 in Europe for the Wi-Fi and 3G models respectively, this is as good as it might get. That price equals to around $166 at the lowest. Adding 3G connectivity for such a small jump in price definitely makes this more desirable. For a small update that has happened only months after the original was revealed, this isn’t too bad at all.
