However, now a good news has come up for the Acer fans here in India.


    According to NDTVGadgets latest reports, Acer Iconia B1 will be officially released in the country around the end of January 2013 at a price of as low as Rs 7,999.

    Going by the past rumors, the tablet is expected to sport a 7-inch screen with a 1,024 x 600 display, Android 4.1.2 Jellybean, 1.2GHz dual-core processor and PowerVR SGX 531 GPU. The device has Wi-Fi connectivity but no cellular to cut the cost. But none of these specs are final till any word is heard from Acer.

    While the US release date of Acer Iconia B1 is not confirmed and is expected to be unveiled at CES 2013 which is scheduled from January 8 to 11, 2013, hence, it would be logical to preassume that the tablet will reach India around January end or February first week.
