Acer Plans New Tablet and Smartphone
Acer has announced that it will unveil a new 10.1-inch Iconia A3 Android-based tablet and a new Liquid S2 smartphone at the German Ifa trade show.
The Android-based tablet comes a 10.1 inch WXGA display (1280 x 800) display with IPS technology. Powered with a quad-core 1.2GHz cortex A7 processor, the Iconia A3 delivers 11 hours of smooth HD video playback
The Android based tablet also comes with Dolby Digital Plus, creating a virtualized 5.1 channel surround sound.
The Iconia A3 also debuts Acer's IntelliSpin technology that expands the tablet's screen image rotation feature, so even when lying flat, the screen image will rotate to match the user's orientation when turned.
"Acer's Progressive Design approach is demonstrated through our constant drive to create a more open and rewarding multitasking experience," said Michael Birkin, Chief Marketing Officer at Acer. "We will continue to introduce both new and refreshed products that achieve the ultimate goal of enabling our customers to Explore Beyond Limits."
Liquid S2 Smartphone
This is Acer's first smartphone with 4K Ultra HD recording capability. Built with a 6-inch full HD screen with IPS technology, connectivity including LTE and the new Wi-Fi 802.11 ac standard, it is also the world's first smartphone with dual speakers powered by Dolby Digital Plus.
The Liquid S2 comes loaded with several camera enhancements including BSI Sensors and LED Ring Flash for sharper pictures, even in low light environments; "Favorite" Mode which lets users create up to five profiles with customized effects, flash, capture modes and scenes; and Exposure Control with one finger focus and exposure adjustment for clear and bright shots.
Pricing and availability of the new devices is still to be confirmed.
