Acer today announced two new budget tablets that will initially hit retail stores in the United States and Canada for less than $200.Both the Iconia Tab 7 and Iconia One 7 as their names suggest have 7-inch displays with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. But in terms of internals, the two models are slightly different from each other.

For starters, the Iconia One 7 sports an Intel Atom dual-core processor as opposed to the Iconia Tab 7’s quad-core MediaTek CPU. Moreover, the Iconia One 7 offers a choice between 8GB or 16GB of internal storage. It also has a pair of front-facing speakers as well as a textured rear case that provides comfortable yet reliable grip.

Although the One 7 already has 8GB/16GB of internal storage, Acer is still throwing in a microSDTM card slot into the mix as well as its own cloud storage service – AcerCloud for those with heavier storage needs.

The Acer Iconia One 7 will come with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box (upgradeable to Android 4.4 KitKat) and will hit stores in May for an expected retail price of US$130.

On the other side of the fence is the Acer Iconia Tab 7. As mentioned earlier, the tab will be powered by a MediaTek chip. It packs front and rear cameras and anti-fingerprint coating in its display for a cleaner and hassle-free visual experience.

Just like the Iconia One 7, the Tab 7 is offered with either 8GB or 16GB of built-in storage with option for expansion via a microSDTM card and Acer’s cloud storage service. The device will come with Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box and will sport a battery that provides up to 7 hours of usage.

The Acer Iconia Tab 7 will also be available starting next month for around US$152.
