Acer plans to launch 7-inch $99 Tablet

It has been reported that the Taiwan-based Company, Acer, is going to make a $99 tablet PC. Perhaps this new tablet PC will be named Iconia B1. It is supposed to come in early 2013. According to The Wall Street Journal, this cheaper tablet PC will be based on Android operating system.
It will come with a 7-inch screen that will be supported by 1,024-by-600 resolution, and a 1.2-GHz dual-core processor. Users may find its specifications similar to the Kindle Fire or Nook Color.
This low-priced tablet PC is obviously going to be a big threat for other tablet PCs. It seems that Internet giant Google is also joining in this low-priced tablet segment by introducing a $99 version of its Android-based Nexus 7 tablet PC next year. Google’s plan to introduce a cheap rated tablet PC came to an attention after a report out of Taiwan last week.
Acer debuted pocket-sized Iconia A110 tablet PC in fall this year. It runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and priced $230.
