Acer launching a $99 tablet next year?

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Acer is working on a tablet that will be launched next year which would cost around just $99 and reportedly come to market as the Iconia B1. The pictures of the tablet were actually leaked on a Benchmark forum, and the source of WSJ confirmed that the pics are authentic.
