The Acer Iconia One 7 budget Android tablet seems ready to hit the U.S. soon, as the slate has just passed through the FCC.
Acer has already launched a budget tablet recently in the form of the $139 Iconia B1-720 slate, but the company seems poised to bring more low-cost offerings to the U.S. tablet market.
The Acer Iconia One 7 made its debut in Taiwan last month with a price tag of 3,490 NTD, i.e. roughly $115, and the latest FCC listing suggests that the slate is set for an imminent debut on the U.S. market.
For those unfamiliar with the device, the Acer Iconia One 7 sports a 7-inch 5-point touch display with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels and packs a dual-core Cortex A9 processor clocked at 1.5GHz under the hood. Other specs include 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage capacity, a 1.9-megapixel rear camera, and a 0.3-megapixel front shooter. The tablet supports Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, has a microSD card slot for additional memory of up to 32GB, and features a micro USB slot with support for USB 2.0, a micro HDMI slot, and a 3.5mm Audio Jack. On the software side, the Acer Iconia One 7 runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. A 3,000 mAh battery should be able to get you through a whole day of use on a single charge.
While the FCC listing suggests that it will hit the U.S. market soon, currently there are no details as to when the Acer Iconia One 7 will actually launch in the U.S., or how much it will cost. It may come with a lower price than the Iconia B1-720 at launch, but it's yet to be confirmed.
As the specs suggest, the Acer Iconia One 7 is not a high-end offering, but a budget slate aimed at casual users. It should be more than enough for checking email, browsing the Internet, enjoying social media networks, or performing other light activities, but don't expect it to work well with graphics-intensive games or heavier apps.
