Acer has officially announced its budget-ranged, seven-inch addition to its [URL=http://macnn.com/rd/276747==http://www.electronista.com/articles/11/06/23/long.awaited.upgrade.may.be.limited.to.europe/]Iconia[/URL] tablet range, though not as cheap as previously thought. The Iconia B1-A71 running Jelly Bean, [URL=http://macnn.com/rd/276748==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/12/24/iconia.b1.to.have.similar.specifications.to.kindle.fire/]as leaked[/URL] late last month, will be a low-priced offering that will compete with the Google Nexus 7 and the Amazon Kindle Fire, though it will not be priced at the speculated $100 barrier.

The 1.2GHz dual-core processor is supported by 512MB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage expandable via microSD up to 32GB, and the seven-inch capacitive multitouch screen has a resolution of 1024x600. Connectivity is offered through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a combined headphone and microphone jack, and a microUSB port. Despite being a budget-ranged tablet, it still manages to weigh just over 11 ounces, and has a 2710mAh battery. While an expected release date is currently unknown, the Iconia B1-A71 has an expected retail price of under $150.
