The idea behind the Acer Tab 7 is to offer a device for the lowest price possible, whilst not worrying too much about trying to beat the best in the industry. Of course, the Nexus 7 range is always going to be a steal, but if you don’t want to fork out that much money for a 7 inch tablet, the Acer Tab 7 could actually be worth considering.
The Acer Tab 7 is currently selling for just $100, and can be picked up from Chinese retailer JD.com.
Despite the $100 price tag, the Acer Tab 7 is still up to date enough to run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and to do this, it has been powered by a dual core Cortex-A9 processor which is clocked at 1.5GHz.
This is quite low powered, and even compared to the Nexus 7 from 2012, it still isn’t a worth match, but it’s the price point that is important here. The 7 inch screen has a 1024×600 pixel resolution, and there’s support for HDMI-out and micro SD cards of up to 64GB.
The device comes with 8GB ROM preinstalled, and 1GB of RAM. Finally, the Acer Tab 7 comes packed with a fairly decent 3,000mAh, which is definitely suffice for the price it’s been given.
If you know your way around a tablet or smartphone better than the average person, I’d say this device is probably not for your liking, but if you’re out of pocket and need a cheap device to get things done on, this could be the one for you.
