Acer introduces Iconia One 7 and Iconia Tab 7, a pair of 7-inch Android tablets

Acer just got finished announcing two new Android tablets for those in the market for a 7-incher. First up to bat is the Iconia One 7, a newly-refreshed version of the B1-720 tablet the company introduced at CES last year.

This version is nearly the same, except it comes with a sharpter 1280 x 800 resolution to bring it out of the stone ages of sub-HD. The device will feature Intel’s ATOM Z2560 processor, and should be launching with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean (but fret not — KitKat is expected at some point after launch).

Secondly is the Iconia Tab 7, which will also be a 1280 x 800 device that brings some phone calling functionality to the slate. The market for these things haven’t been terribly large, but apparently there’s some need for them.

Under the hood will be a MediaTek quad-core processor, and it will launch with Android 4.4 KitKat. There will be cellular connectivity, but you sadly won’t be getting anything past 3G.

These tablets are no doubt positioned for emerging markets and people who don’t want to spend a fortune on connected tablets. The Acer Iconia One 7 will be available in Pan American markets by the end of June starting at $129.99 in the US. It’s also headed to Europe, Middle East and Africa by mid-May with prices starting at €139.

Meanwhile, the Iconia Tab 7 is coming to Latin American markets by the end of June with starting at $1,990 Peso, with Europe, Middle East and Africa getting it mid-May starting at €149.

    Of course they have to put “One” in the name of a product. Everyone else does.

    1280 x 800 isnt bad but I would have paid a couple of more bucks if it was 1920×1080.
    Maybe Intel performs badly at higher res?

    nice and cheap…would be a perfect navigation device if it has 1. gps 2. bluetooth
    I guess it can also work as a tablet in a pinch.

    Looks good but experience taught me Acer doesn’t support their products much after launch.
