Android Central @ CES

Acer today announced a pair of new Android tablets ahead of CES.

The Iconia A1-830, seen above left, is a 7.9-inch tablet running Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean. It's powered by an Intel Atom processor at 1.6 GHz, has 1GB of RAM and 16GB of on-board storage. The display has a paltry 1024x768 resolution and a 4:3 aspect ratio. There's a 5 MP camera on the back, and a 2MP shooter up front. It'll run $179 in the U.S., and $199 in Canada. The A1-830 is expected to be available sometime this quarter.

Then there's the Iconia B1 tablet (seen here at right). It's a 7-incher that's just $129 (U.S. and Canada). Acer was coy with specs, but we do know it's running a 1.3 GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and sports Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean. It'll be available later this month.
