Acer Plans to Slash Price of its 7.9-inch Tablet

Acer is looking to take a bite out of the tablet market share with its 7.9-inch tablet. Thanks to French online retailer Rue du Commerce, the tablet is ready for pre-order at €199. However, according to sources from the supply chain, Acer is considering lowering the price of its Iconia A1-810 tablet.

To compete with Apple mini, Nexus 7 and Amazon's Kindle Fire HD, the company would take the tablet from $249.99 to $149.99. However, Acer declined to comment about the rumors. The device should be available by the end of this month.
