Acer Exec Hints At Low-Priced, Quad-Core 8 and 10″ Tablets Coming Soon


Acer made a bit of a splash at CES this year by announcing the Iconia B1, a $150 7″ tablet that comes equipped with Jelly Bean. Acer has their sights set squarely on the Nexus 7’s low price point and is looking to do them one better, but there might be more tablets coming down the pipe sometime soon. Linxian Lang, from Acer’s China division, said that a 8 and 10″ tablets with “aggressive pricing” should be expected from them. 

More low-cost, high-spec Android tablets are always welcomed to give the OS a better name. However, Engadget doesn’t think these tablets will be making their ways to our shores. Hopefully that tone will change once their whole lineup is announced officially.

A race to see who can produce the cheapest Android tablet isn’t necessarily a good thing, but if these devices have decent specs at a low price point what’s not to enjoy? How cheap do you think Acer can go for a 10″ quad-core Jelly Bean tablet?

    After Acer’s comment of “oh, we wont release Jelly Bean for the A100 and A500 because we can’t promise a good experience” BS, no one should even consider buying their devices.

    One of the most exciting tablets of 2013 is from Ainol Electronics and becomes available in February – the Novo 9 Spark is released, which features a Quad Core processor along with an impressive 9.7 inch 2048×1536 (Retina) screen – and a powerful 10,000 mAh battery, 4K Digital HDMI output, and a 5-Megapixel Rear Camera with AF and Flash – with a price of $269 — with features that compete directly with iPad and Nexus 10 for much less.

    It should be interesting to see how the new Novo Quad Core Series fares as this company gains more presence in the tablet market. One reseller, a site called TabletSprint offers the Novo 9 Spark as well as the new Novo 7 Venus – a 7 inch Quad Core Android 4.1 tablet for $149 that rivals the Nexus 7 – TabletSprint also includes $25 in Bonus Apps with both of these models they carry.

    Are the cutting the chinese laborer’s salaries from .80 cents an hour to .50 to produce these at a cheaper price?
