Putting an end to all the speculations Acer launches Iconia B1 tablet in India, which runs on the present Android 4.1 [Jelly Bean]. The tablet has been attractively priced (Rs 7999/-) to survive the battle amongst budget tablet manufactures.
Acer is a giant in the gadget arena with its laptops already flooding the market. By launching Iconia B1, the company makes nimble move to fish out maximum profit out of the exploding budget tablet less than Rs 10,000 market in India. The market is only expected to double this year, if not more.

At the launch at CES, the Chief Marketing Officer of the company Mr. Rajendran (showing his conviction in the tablet) says to the media that he is sure Acer’s Iconia B1 will ride the tablet-market wave very easily and is confident about the tablet being the best wholesome tablet experience so far, given the price.
So far Micromax has been ruling the budget tablet segment, as the last year sales record clearly show. This is the first time any global leader has decided to touch this cash cow segment.
Let’s hope, other biggies also venture soon in India to give us better options within Rs 10,000/- price list.
