Acer Iconia B1 tablet for just $99. Will it be a hot news for 2013 ? Not sure as 2013 will be an era for low cost tablet where 2012 is an year for tablets. What can be the features of Acer Iconia B1 tablet . Just for a name sake tablet, or can be a tab will all most all the features ? It was told that it have the similar feature of Amazon Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble Nook - 1,024 x 600 display and a 1.2GHz processor. What OS ? Acer Iconia B1 tablet will powered by Android Jelly Bean (4.1) . We are thinking that , if it needs to be sold in US in the early months of 2013 , then it would have submitted the device to Federal Communications Commission (FCC) who regulates interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite and cable. But still the USD 99 is a rumor , no one have confirmed that Acer is going to sell tab for $99. But for sure , if the Acer can sell that for $99 , then it will be a market break for the Tab, even local brand have to quit from the tab market. 

Fifth generation iPad on March 2013



Its time to get the information of fifth generation of iPad. Rumors started spreading on the specification . Till now apple didn't confirm what are the new features or they have any plan to have the next generation of iPad or what it is called or any other new product etc. The iPad generation goes as The iPad, the iPad 2 , iPad Retina display and mini iPad . So are we expecting iPad X ? . If so what can be the features ? . The retina display , they introduced to have the same feeling of its notebook, and till date no one have overtaken for its clarity . The iPad 4 launch was the introduction of the Mini with a sleek 7.87 inch in height, 5.3 inch in width and 0.28 inch in depth. For sure , apple may be concentration more on the thickness, speed and the quality of touch pad as well as the display and more importantly the cost . We are getting the samsung galaxy which have almost the same features with less price, so for sure they may consider about the cost also. The next-generation may be a full-size iPad, which can just replace a net-book. Now apple has got another major competitor from Google’s Nexus 7 and Microsoft’s Surface. As more product come they have to work on each and every element such as 
  1. Cost
  2. Quality 
  3. Durability
  4. Support
  5. Apps
    and so one
To have a miracle change they should have dimensions of 4 mm in height, 17 mm in width, and 2 mm in depth. Do you think that it is possible ? Lets see what is going to have in March 2013.
