NEW YORK: THE ICONIA ONE 7 is Acer's latest rival to the Google Nexus 7, with the affordable Android tablet set to retail for €139 when it goes on sale in May.

Acer unveiled the Iconia One 7 at an event in New York on Tuesday, alongside the Iconia Tab 7 and its three-in-one Aspire Switch 10 device. The budget tablet is all about design, with Acer making the Iconia One 7 available in 10 colour options with a textured, fingerprint resistant casing. 

Beyond its colourful design, the Acer Iconia One 7 features a dual-core Intel processor, an HD IPS display, dual cameras, and Google's Android mobile operating system. However, the tablet will arrive running the ageing Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, although Acer is promising that the tablet will be upgradeable to Android 4.4 Kitkat, we just don't know when yet.

Much like the Asus Fonepad, the Acer Iconia One 7 tablet is also capable of making phone calls, for those brave enough to hold a 7in device against their face. µ
