Acer Iconia Tab 10

IFA 2014 At the IFA, Acer announced a new 5-inch low-cost smartphone in the Liquid series, dubbed the Liquid Z500. Aimed at a younger audience, the device features dual front speakers, similar to what HTC offers on the One M8. Equipped with DTS Studio Sound, Acer claims that you can get CD quality audio from the front speakers.

Other specs of the Liquid Z500 include a 5-inch IPS screen of unknown resolution, 8 MP camera and a thickness of 8.6 mm. We'll know more once the device launches on September 15 for €149 ($195) in the UK.

In addition to the smartphone, Acer is expanding its Iconia tablet offerings with the Iconia Tab 10 and the Iconia One 8. The Iconia Tab 10 is a 10-inch tablet that features an IPS full-HD display coated with Corning's Gorilla Glass for scratch resistance, MediaTek quad-core processor, micro-HDMI port, WiDi capabilities and Android 4.4. The tablet will be available in the US later this month for $199.

The Iconia One 8 is the second tablet in the Iconia One line, after Acer launched the Iconia One 7 earlier this year. Featuring an 8-inch 1280 x 800 screen and an Intel quad-core Atom Z3735G processor, the Iconia One 8 will be offered in a total of ten color variations. The tablet runs Android 4.4 KitKat, features a slim profile with a thickness of 8.5 mm along with a textured back. The Iconia One 8 will be available in the EMEA region in October, with prices starting from 149€ ($195). There is no word on US availability.

Any of you interested in what Acer has to offer?

I'm still rocking a acer a500 from a few years back. Still serves me well. Not into gaming so it's now low end specs don't slow me down. The full size usb port was the selling point for me on its release.

I have one too. I'm still loving the battery life and its relatively light for some web browsing in bed. Only problem I have with is the lack of TRIM (introduced in 4.3, this tablet officially only has 4.0), so I need to factory reset it every few months to clean up the file system... an all the above is unrelated to this article. Anyways, I will probably replace it with the 10" above.
****EDIT**** cleaned up my atrocious grammar from the initial post.

Yes I like what Acer is introducing, a 10 inch tablet, quad core for under 200 is very competitive. But I must say I'm waiting for the nexus tablet... If it ever comes out.

I agree with this, great price and probably going to be a decent product. I like Acer and in general, under a 10" screen is too small, I'd rather just use my phone.
