Acer has made the first major tablet in the under Rs.10000 segment of tablets. This is a significant move by Acer to consolidate its position in the Indian tablet market considering there are no international brands which have launched an under 10000 tablet in India. This could provide substantial market traction to Acer in the tablet market in India.
Acer Iconia B1 features a dual-core 1.2GHz MediaTek processor, 8GB of internal storage, 512MB RAM, microSD card slot, Wi-Fi connectivity and a 7-inch 1024x600p display. There is also a front camera and 2,710 mAh battery on-board.
At this pricing, Iconia B1 is certainly a nice tablet if you don’t want to purchase low priced chinese options and other local brands that you have trouble trusting.
The Iconia B1 will be available across the country at all major retail stores in the coming days. “Our strong channel partner network across the country will ensure that every consumer gets a chance to enjoy this exciting new product from the house of Acer,” said S. Rajendran, Chief Marketing Officer, Acer India. So if you were really dreaming about getting a tablet soon, the Acer Iconia B1 would be a good choice considering its brand assurance and low price.
