Acer Iconia B, the $99 Android Jelly Bean tablet, appears on Acer India website

Barely two days after news came of Acer planning to launch the Iconia B Android tablet in India, it has appeared on the company’s India website. At the time of filing this post, the tablet page was still going up on the company’s US site. The Iconia B is rumored to be priced at $99 and aimed at emerging markets. It is expected to be launched in India for Rs 7,999 later this month.

The site does not list many details but reveals that the Android Jelly Bean running tablet will have a 7-inch display and will be powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor. It weighs at 320 grams and will have a front-facing camera and a microSD card slot.

We expect Acer to make an official announcement at CES, which begins on Monday, January 8.
