Last year, at IDF, Intel announced that it would soon make a concerted push into both the Windows and the Android tablet markets, with an aggressive contra-revenue strategy (meaning, they'd ship devices at a loss) and a huge set of marketing campaigns. On the Windows side we've seen the fruits of that push; many companies now offer Bay Trail devices in the 8-10 inch market. On the Android side of the market, however, things have been almost entirely silent -- Intel has demonstrated a few systems and made a little noise, but it hasn't done much to actually field designs in the US market. Today,... Read more...

Although there’s so much hubbub over the avalanche of Windows 8 tablets that are coming later this month, there are still plenty of tablets running Android, and Acer has announced an inexpensive 7-incher called the Acer Iconia Tab A110. The Iconia Tab A110 is technically a budget-level tablet, but it wants not for impressive specs; the device runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a quad-core 1.2GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor with that famous 5th ghost core, and a 12-core NVIDIA GPU. The 7-inch display is 1024x600 (16:10 aspect ratio), and there’s 1GB of DDR3 memory and 8GB of onboard storage (supplemented... Read more...
Hot on the heels of the Windows 8-based Aspire S7 series of ultrabooks comes the Acer Iconia W700 tablet PC. The tablet runs Windows 8 on an 11.6-inch 1920 x 1080 IPS touchscreen and includes a cradle and keyboard so you can use the tablet as a notebook when you need to type on a full keyboard. The Iconia W700 includes a 1.8GHz Intel Core i3-3217U CPU (the W700-6607 model) or 1.7GHz Core i5-3317U CPU (W700-6691).

We learned all about the Acer Iconia Tab A510 last month when the tablet went up for preorder, but now Acer’s website has the device listed as in stock. The kids over at Engadget spotted the A510 on the site, which is being sold as the “Olympic Game Edition” in celebration of the upcoming London summer games. (It has the Olympic ring design on the back...that appears to be the only link between it and the Games.) For $449.99, you’ll get a tablet with a 10.1-inch multitouch display, an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor (1.3GHz), 1GB of DDR2 RAM, 32GB of internal storage... Read more...
If you’ve been wondering when your Acer Iconia tablet would be getting the Ice Cream Sandwich treatment, wonder no more. The company announced that the update to Android 4.0 is on the way--for the A-series tablets, anyway. Specifically, it’s coming via an OTA update this week for the Iconia Tab A200 and sometime in April for the Iconia Tab A100 and Iconia Tab A500. For the most part, the upgrade will offer about what you’d expect: faster browsing, tweaked interface, better Gmail integration, and so on, but the Iconia tablets will get some Acer-specific features, too, including...

Is it the holy grail of notebooks? It might be. Companies have contemplated dual-screen laptops for years now, and Toshiba even went so far as to produce a limited edition one earlier in the year. The Libretto W105 was definitely a unique product, and it looks like Acer has drawn inspiration from that in their newest device, the Iconia. This is a new 14" machine that does away with a keyboard in favor of yet another 14" display. That's two displays in one laptop, with the bottom one serving as the keyboard when necessary or as a media management system in other instances. Acer revealed the wild... Read more...
