Acer is targeting the lower end of the tablet space with the Iconia B1-A71. It believes that it's the perfect low-cost tablet for first time tablet buyers and the $150 price tag is low enough to justify joining the 7-inch tablet party.

Here's a look at Acer Iconia B1-A71 features and specs:

  • Android JellyBean operating system
  • Mediatek dual-core 1.2GHz processor (MTK 8317T)
  • 7-inch diagonal WSVGA capacitive multitouch screen with 1,024 x 600 resolution display
  • 8GB(1) of internal storage and 512MB DDR3 memory
  • Wireless connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n -Bluetooth® wireless technology 4.0 -GPS
  • 3.5mm headset/headphone/microphone jack
    -internal speaker
  • microSDTM expansion slot with up to 32GB support
  • Front-facing 0.3-megapixel webcam
  • Rechargeable 2,710 mAh battery
  • micro-USB (charging and PC connect) with USB 2.0
  • Dimensions: 197.4 mm x 128.5 mm x 11.3 mm
  • Weight: 320 g

As you can tell from the specs, this is definitely an entry-level tablet compared to other 7-inch tablets like Apple's iPad mini, Google's Nexus 7, and Amazon's Kindle Fire HD. Acer is not targeting those devices and is betting on that sweet and low $150 price point. Will the low price of the Iconia B1-A71 tablet be enough to sway you to choose it over other 7-inch tablets?
