Acer Philippines today announced its new 7-inch tablet, the Iconia B1-A71. While the tablet will launch with a starting price of less than P5,750, the price is the tablet's most intriguing detail.
At only seven inches and 320 grams, this compact device is easy to carry around for the commute. Its sleek and unique design, made possible by double injection technology, gives the gadget a trendy electric blue shade, making it distinct among tablets in the market today. If you are not the motion-sick type, you can simply read your favorite e-books or free online magazines.
Based on the latest Android Jelly Bean operating system, the gadget offers more than 700,000 free and paid apps and games via the Google Playstore. The trip will never be boring for you and your family when you try out those fave games currently making the rounds of mobile users these days like the Icon Pop Quiz, the Ultimate Logo Quiz, Temple Run 2 and Flow Free. And since the Acer Iconia B1-A71 is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, gaming performance and fluidity are at its best.
If the countryside seems like a blur of plantations rushing by, start watching a video with your siblings or friends on your tab. With relatively larger display than your traditional smartphone, the Acer Iconia B1-A71 provides enhanced reading and viewing experience via its 1024x600 touch screen.
Plus, users will find it easy to hold, even with one hand, thanks to this innovative triangular corner grip at the lower part of the device, which makes it sit snuggly into your palm. Enjoy as well the internal 16G storage that’s expandable up to 32GB via microSD, allowing you to bring as many movies, videos and media files as you want on your trip, making marathon watching of TV series episodes you missed a piece of cake.
If you are quite unfamiliar with places of interest, you can always consult your Acer Iconia B1-A71 tablet for tips and directions. Searching proves to be faster with the Jelly Bean, and you can get precise search results right away. You may use the Voice Search function for queries, and expect a spoken answer from the tab.
The gadget also supports Gmail, Google+, Maps, Messenger, Play Store, Talk, YouTube, Currents, Chrome and Google Now.
The front camera can be used in portrait or landscape modes, the latter enabling more than two users in the video call image. You can include your entire family in talking to relatives abroad through the device’s 300,000-pixel webcam.
