Along with the Liquid E600 and E700 smartphones, Acer also unveiled a new Iconia 8 tablet, which comes with Android 4.4 KitKat as its operating system out of the box.
As the name suggests, the tablet features a 8-inch display sporting a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, and is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom Z3745 processor.
“Acer’s underlying goal is to provide a wide portfolio of devices with great value and superb functionality that improves people’s lives,” said Maverick Shih, president of Acer’s BYOC and Tablet Business Group. “Today, Acer has the strongest touch portfolio in the industry and continues to expand it to bring happiness to the many, not just the few.”
The tablet is 8.5mm thin and weighs only 360 grams, making it a decent tablet when it comes to portability. Tge tablet comes with 16/32GB storage with MicroSD card support and 1GB of RAM. Other features include WiFi, Bluetooth, 5MP rear camera for photos and videos, as well as a 2MP front-facing camera.
The tablet is expected to hit the retail shelves in the third quarter of 2014. The company didn’t mention the markets where the tablet will hit retail. There’s also no word about its availability in the US, but we doubt it will make an appearance on US shores.Filed Under: Android News, Tablet News, Top News
