Acer has released the new budget 7-inch Acer Iconia B1 tablet, which is said to run Android Jelly Bean, in the next year.

The leaked document tells of a Mediatek dual-core processor, with 512MB of RAM and 8GB of storage, so it won't compete at the very top end of the Android tablet market, like the quad-core Google Nexus 7. The Iconia B1 bears a striking resemblance to the original Barnes & Noble Nook tablet, mainly due to the coloured home button at the bottom left corner, which is similar to the signature "Loop" button on the Nook slate.

It will be coming with Bluetooth 4.0 as well as GPS and will likely be running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean when it’s revealed.

The Iconica B1 may be launched at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next month or, failing that, at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February. This will further fuel the US$99 tablet war, going against the ASUS $99 tablet and the Google Nexus 7, not to mention the iPad mini.
