Acer has overnight announced two new Android tablets, the Iconia One 7 which will come in a variety of colour options and a 3G enabled Iconia Tab 7.
Iconia One 7
The Iconia One 7 will be released in ‘a wide-array of delightful color options’, including red, white, black, blue and pink, although colours available though will vary by region. The rear will be textured providing anti-slip properties which Acer hope will make it comfortable and easy to hold.
Spec wise the Iconia One 7 will come with:
- 7″ LED-backlit 1280×800 HD IPS display
- Intel® Atom™ Z2560 processor
- Front and Rear cameras
- Two speakers
- MicroSD Card slot
- Android 4.2 with update to Android 4.4
Due to be released in Europe, the Middle East and Africa around the middle of May the tablet will be priced at €139 or around AUD$206, so expect around the $200 price point.
Iconia Tab 7
It’s not the first time we’ve seen a tablet which is capable of voice calls, so the ability which is included Iconia Tab 7 should be nothing terribly overwhelming. The Iconia Tab 7 has been announced in an anodized silver.
It’s main claim to fame appears to be the 3G voice calling, although the 3G will also allow customers to surf the web using the data capacity. Acer has listed the tablet will be available in two models: the A1-713HD and A1-813. The A1-713HD will have a 1280×800 IPS anti-fingerprint display, 5 MP rear camera and run Android 4.4. The A1-713 will have a 1024×600 display, 2 MP rear camera and run Android 4.2 which is upgradable to Android 4.4.
Both tablets will have a 7″ display, just the resolution being the differentiator. The Tablets will also both have up to 6 hours of battery life. The tablets are being released in Latin America in June as well as in Europe, Middle East and Africa in the middle of May, pricing will start at €149, which is around AUD$221.
