Android tablet reportedly packs an Intel Atom Z2560 chip
Acer is reportedly getting ready to make another addition to its Iconia B1 series of dirt cheap Android tablets. A German tech site recently published images and specs purported to be that of an upcoming 7-inch tablet called the Acer Iconia B1-730 HD.
The 7-inch B1-730 HD, per a report over at German site MobileGeeks.de, has a dual-core Intel Atom Z2560 clocked at 1.6 GHz. This is a departure from the $130 Iconia B1-720, which packs a dual-core SoC from MTK. Also, unlike the B1-720, which is limited to a rather shoddy 1,024 x 600 TN panel, the upcoming tablet is said to sport an improved 1,280×800 IPS display. Other specs include 1GB of RAM, 8/16GB storage, 5 MP camera, Wi-Fi connectivity and a 3,700-mAh battery.
The site expects the 10-mm thick tablet that weighs around 320 grams to hit German store shelves at around €139 (roughly $190). More details are expected to become available at the company’s upcoming press event in New York on April 29.
