Acer is reportedly prepping a $99 tablet, dubbed the Iconia B1, but it remains to be seen whether it will actually show up stateside.

Citing "a person with direct knowledge of the project," the Wall Street Journal reported today that the cheaper, Android-based Acer tablet will make its debut in early 2013.
The gadget will sport a 7-inch, 1,024-by-600 display and a 1.2-GHz dual-core processor, the Journal said. Specs will be similar to the Kindle Fire $199.00 at Amazon or Nook Color.
Acer, however, is likely eyeing Chinese consumers rather than those in the U.S. The Journal said the Taiwan-based Acer needs to go up against the no-name Android tablets that are much more popular in China than they are in the states.

Still, the device has been submitted to the Federal Communications Commission for approval.
Photos of the device that showed up on a Serbian forum are apparently legitimate, according to the Journal's source.

Last week, a report out of Taiwan indicated that Google is planning to introduce a $99 version of its Android-based Nexus 7 tablet next year.

Acer's "pocket-size" Iconia A110 tablet running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean debuted in the fall for $230. In our review, PCMag found that the A110 is a formidable 7-inch Android tablet, but it didn't quite measure up to competitors like the Google Nexus 7 $249.99 at Kmart and Amazon's Kindle Fire HD.

The release of this kind of makes buying a Nexus 7 pointless.

People keep saying "Google has a $99 tablet coming out" but have no proof. No statements or nothing, atleast with this Acer tablet we have proof. For $99 that's a pretty dope tablet depending on the gpu, battery and if it has expandable storage or not. I feel like one of those are gonna need to be sacrificed in order to justify the $99 price tag.

Like my Pipo S1, in terms of hardware is dope for the most part, incredibly fast and handles everything I throw at it. But it's been cursed with a sh*tty battery and low resolution (though the resolution isn't that bad, but it needs to be pointed out).

My Nexus 7 is holding me down just fine. I'd rather fu*k with a tablet from Asus than Acer, but thats just me. But this does make the $99 Nexus report seem alot more true now.

the nexus 7 is a goddamn beast at its price if we're speaking on raw power. the thing that got me away from it was the screen separation issue.

buy it from google direct if you want one.
