It is a tablet of seven-inch with the operating system Android and an attractive design with the casing in red or gray that has received an update on its features. Some of the highlights of the 2014 version of this device are the inclusion of technology One Glass Solution on the touch panel to get a slimmer design and a clearer picture or the increase of RAM to run more applications at the same time without that slows down the use of the equipment. Acer will commercialize this equipment on WiFi and WiFi and 3G versions to connect to mobile networks in our journeys and displacements.
Acer has worked to create an attractive design. The Acer Iconia B1 includes a casing in grey or red Vermillion. This color also surrounds the black frame on the front, adding a touch of class to this team. At the top we find the logo of the brand and the three own buttons on the platform Android (back, home and access to the list of apps) in this case will touch and be part of the panel itself, so that we can access them easily both horizontally and vertically.
We also noticed the inclusion of One Glass Solution Technology in the touch panel. This technology eliminates one of the layers forming part of an LCD touch panel. As a result, you will get sharper images and a more slim design can be achieved. The Acer Iconia B1 has dimensions of 19.7 × 12.8 x 1.1 inches and a competitive weight of 330 grams. Although it does not reach the levels of the high-end tablets market is a fairly restrained set that will facilitate its grip with one hand. Another point that we liked the design of the Acer Iconia B1 is the position of the speaker and the microphone, standing on the bottom of the front area. This position provides a clearer and more powerful hearing movies and music.
Returning to the panel, we find a seven-inch screen with touch capability to support up to 10 points of pressure at the same time and with a resolution of 1,024 x 600 pixels.
In the field of memory, Acer has opted for a memory flash eMMC of 16 GB. This is a quite remarkable ability for a team of this price range, and will allow you to store a large number of media files, applications and games. For those users that make more intensive use of the tablet, the device includes a card slot MicroSD with a maximum capacity of 32 GB, which would bring the team to the space 48 GB.
Moreover, the Korean company has updated performance machine with a processor dual core with a power of 1.3 GHz, this chip also includes a GPU (graphics processor) that allow us to more potent run games more smoothly. As for memory RAM, has risen from 512 MB to 1 GB to use more applications simultaneously without slowing down the computer.
One of the aspects that most note that this is a team input range is certainly the field of photography. The Acer Iconia B1 sacrifices the rear end, a specification often insist that all manufacturers but not very useful when we already have a smartphone to perform this function. Yes that maintains a front camera for using videoconferencing applications like Skype and Hangouts, but with a VGA quality that can stay somewhat short for these uses.
The operating system chosen for the Acer Iconia 2014 B1 is Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. It is a version that is spreading as the most used in smartphones and tablets with this system. The Android platform has a very rich ecosystem of over a million applications from its official store. In this review we have improved some aspects of the system such as voice assistant Google Now or ability to enter shortcuts directly from your lock screen team. In addition, a specific characteristic to the field of tablets is the ability to create several different profiles for multiple people to use the tablet without crossing the files and applications can configure in each case (parental control).
We also noticed the weight that own applications Google experience on Android. With Google Maps you can browse and find any address, Hangouts becomes an interesting alternative to WhatsApp messaging or Skype for videoconferencing, YouTube channel the majority of visitors to watch videos on the net…
At this point it must be noted that there are two versions of this tablet, one that includes WiFi connectivity and the other with Wi-Fi and 3 G. The inclusion of 3G connectivity is a very interesting advantage if we often use the tablet away from home, and we don’t want that their use is limited to the viewing of movies or games when we are far from a local network. Also it includes free Bluetooth 3.0 for transferring information to compatible equipment. Finally, we should mention the ability to increase the available space through a card slot MicroSD up to 32 GB.
