Acer Launches The Iconia One 7; Beats Itself In The Budget Tablet Game

After launching the lower specd and higher priced Iconia A1-713 the company launched a better specd lower priced one.


Acer seems to be getting its pricing all wrong these days. The company had recently announced its Iconia A1-713 tablet on a budget for an asking price of 12,999 and now it has again launched another tablet with HD specifications at a lower price tag called the Iconia One 7.

As far as the specs go, we get :

  • A 7 inch (1280 x 800 pixel) HD display that is definitely better than the 1024 x 600 pixel one on the Iconia A1-713
  • 1.6 GHz dual-core Intel Atom Z2560 silicon with 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB internal memory expandable up to 32 GB via a microSD card slot
  • 2 MP primary camera and a 0.3 MP VGA front-facing one
  • Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) powered by a 3680 mAh battery

Indeed the Iconia One 7 comes out on top when pitted against Acer’s own higher priced, MediaTek powered sibling. But wait, because there is also the price. The Iconia One 7 costs just Rs 8,499 compared to the A1-713’s Rs 12,999 price tag.

The tablet is available exclusively on in black and the online retailer will even pack in a Philips DJ SHL3000 headset for free for the first 1000 orders.
