After the Iconia B1 8GB version debut at Consumer Electronics Show 2013 last month, Acer has now taken the wraps off the 16GB version of the same tablet. Priced starting €139 in the Europe, the tablet is immediately available for purchase. The new storage variant also goes on sale in Middle East and Africa right-away.
