Ahead of an official appearance at CES next week, Acer today announced a number of new products including two new additions to its Android tablet lineup. Both of the two new models will arrive this quarter including the Acer Iconia A1-830 7.9-inch tablet, which will start at $149 in the US, and the 7-inch Iconia B1 starting at €129 (no word on US availability).

As for the A1-830, Acer says the inexpensive tablet actually packs in some decent specs inside a slim 8.15mm thick design. Inside you’ll find a Intel Atom Z2560 1.6GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, dual speakers, 16GB of storage expandable to 32GB, a main camera capable of capturing 1080p video, and front-facing camera tha shoots up to 720p. You’ll also get microUSB, Bluetooth 3.0, and the 7.9-inch 1024 x 768 IPS display.

The new Iconia B1, on the other hand, will pack in a 1.3GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage expandable to 32GB, a front-facing camera, and will come in both 3G and WiFi only variants. Both tablets will unfortunately be running the older Android 4.2 out of the box. We’d expect to see more and get our hands on both new tablets at CES next week.
