Acer is going to launch a $99 Android tablet in early 2013 according to WSJ. The tablet called Iconia B1 will have a 1024 x 600 resolution screen, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and Android 4.1.2 'Jelly Bean' installed.
The specs will be somewhat similar to Amazon's Kindle Fire. But Acer plans to undercut those best-selling tablets’ $139 price tag by offering the Iconia B1 for around $99.
The company is also planning to launch a low-priced version of its Intel-based Windows 8 tablets in early 2013.
