Acer Iconia B1-730 HD will be Intel powered with possible launch next week

Acer has been delivering some pretty interesting budget-friendly Android tablets and it isn’t going to stop anytime soon as another addition, the Iconia B1-730 HD, has been spotted online. The device will be powered by an Intel processor instead of a MediaTek chipset that was featured on the B1-720 model.

And as the name suggests, the tablet will have an HD display of 800 x 1280 pixels. The screen size here is 7 inches with IPS technology. The guys over at Mobile Geeks have managed to get hold of many images which are of the Acer Iconia B1-730 HD. By the looks of things, the tablet will introduce a new design which is more alluring than what previous B1 tablets featured.
