Acer Tab 7 Powered by 1.5GHz Dual-Core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU in China

The company is joining some of local manufacturer in Taiwan to produce affordable tablets due probably of the increasing demand. Compared to Samsung and Apple, Acer is aiming for quantity instead of high-performance and durable machines. According to report, their new 7-inch tablet is totally different from the line of Iconia devices, a dual-core Armada Cortex-A9 powered slate paired with only 1GB of RAM.

Not bad, right? If you are asking about the price, according to report, Acer Tab 7 is up for about $100.00 only. Compared to some low-end smartphones, the advantage of having a much wider device could really change our way of thinking about an Acer products in the future. However, this machine will become available in China as well in neighboring countries but not in United States or European countries.

Hopefully, Acer Tab 7 could also compete with other China-made tablets with the same underlying specs. And for me, it is ideal for students who are looking for a budget-friendly buddy for their eBooks and electronic reading materials.

For specs of Acer Tab 7, see the following list below:
  • CPU: ARM Cortex-A9 at 1.5GHz (dual-core)
  • RAM: 1GB
  • Storage: 8GB (MicroSD card slot is also available for additional storage space)
  • Display: 7-inch with 1024 x 600-pixel resolution
  • Operating System: Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean)
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth (no words for version 4.0)
  • Ports: MicroUSB, MicroHDMI
  • Camera: 1.9-megapixel (main or rear-facing) and VGA in front
  • Weight: 289-gram
  • Thickness: 9.9-millimeter
  • Battery: 3000mAh Lithium-Ion
Although it is not powerful enough compared to Acer Iconia A1-830 with Intel Atom Z2560 chip, this machine offers its own unique features for those who are looking for tablet from China in less than $100.00 price.

And the good thing about this tablet, it remains an original model compared to some imitated machines in stores.
