Acer’s Tab 7 is just around $100 and it has pretty ok specs

Earlier this month, Acer unveiled two new affordable tablets, the A1-830 and B1, which run on Android. And now, the company has taken the wraps off another slate dubbed the Tab 7 in China that takes the cake as the most affordable device in the OEMs current lineup.

Priced at around $100 or 599 Yuan, the device falls in the 7-inch segment and looks quite stylish. The rear panel features a textured finish while the sides are drenched in silver, with the overall form factor most likely being made from polycarbonate. The display on the front delivers visuals at 1024 x 600p resolution and supports 5-point touch input. Apart from this, there’s also a 1.9MP webcam located above the panel, while the rear flaunts a 3MP camera.
