Acer announces the Iconia Tab 7, the perfect smartphone for your pet gorilla


Just when you thought phones weren’t big enough, Acer comes to the rescue. They just unveiled a behemoth of a phone in the Iconia Tab 7. It’s basically a tablet with phone functionality. They are saying it’s “super portable,” but how can that be if it doesn’t fit in my pocket?

The Iconia Tab 7 features a  7-inch display with 1280 x 800 resolution and a quad-core MediaTek processor. The phone functionality is over 3G, so no LTE. They didn’t divulge any other specs, but as you can see, this device is for emerging markets. It will sport KitKat however.

It will be available in Latin America, Asia, and parts of Europe for €149 or 1,990 Mexican pesos. Mexico’s device will sport a 1024 x 600 display for whatever reason.

Acer also announced the Iconia One 7, which features a 7-inch 1280 x 800 display and an Intel Atom Z2560 processor. Unfortunately it only has Android 4.2, but 4.4 is promised. It will be available in May for $130.

Press Release

New Acer Iconia Tab 7 Combines Tablet and Phone Functionality

Voice calls and 3G connectivity to stay connected everywhere
Slim design with premium look and feel
Impressive media performance and imaging with HD IPS² display and quad-core processing power

Acer today unveiled the Acer Iconia Tab 7(¹) at its “A Touch More Connected” launch event in New York. Equipped with phone functionality and 3G connectivity, the Iconia Tab 7 is the marriage of the two most used consumer devices — a tablet and phone — together in a super portable, premium-looking design with a vibrant 7-inch screen. Users can use 3G to browse, keep in touch, stay current on news, events and social networks, as well as enjoy voice calls.

A slim design with premium look and feel
The slim Acer Iconia Tab 7 has a premium look and feel with a clean and simple design of anodized silver. The 0.89 cm (0.35 inches) thin body, narrow 11.6 cm (4.6 inches) width and light 298 g (0.66 lb) weight makes the Iconia Tab 7 extremely comfortable to hold and use with a single hand for phone calls and browsing, yet it’s large enough for reading text and enjoying video.

Impressive media performance and imaging
Available with two screen options(¹), the vibrant 7-inch screen delivers crisp visuals with up to 1280×800 HD resolution and IPS(²) technology for sharp, truly vivid colors from wide viewing angles. Plus, customers can do even more with their Iconia Tab 7 thanks to its powerful quad-core processor. Dual cameras ensure users can capture all the most important moments, and it features Android 4.4 (KitKat) and up to 6 hours(3) of battery life.

Tap, swipe and pinch with fewer fingerprints
With all those taps, swipes and pinches, screens can get dirty quickly, but not with the Iconia Tab 7. Equipped with an anti-fingerprint coating, messy fingerprints and smudges are reduced while also making it much easier to clean.

The Iconia Tab 7 is equipped with a MicroSD™ card slot for extended storage and easy sharing. For further storage expansion, users can take advantage of AcerCloud™ (4) and enjoy seamless sharing of videos, photos, music and documents across multiple devices.

Pricing and availability
The Acer Iconia Tab 7 will be available in Latin American markets at the end of June with prices starting at $1,990 MX Peso; in Europe, Middle East and Africa middle of May with prices starting at €149.-.

Acer Iconia Tab A220 leaks via benchmark, reveals Android 4.1 and quad-core Tegra 3 on board

According to a leak from the GL Benchmark database, it looks like Acer is working on the successor to the Iconia Tab A210. The model revealed in the benchmark, the A220, will be powered by a quad-core Tegra 3 processor clocking in a 1.3GHz. Granted, it’s a bit lower by today’s standards, but this may be a move to squeeze more battery life out of the device. It also looks like the device will run Android 4.1.2. Since it’s only a benchmark leak, we obviously can’t tell much more other than what was revealed in the actual benchmark, but we’ll let you know as we learn more.

Acer Iconia Tab A110, A210 and A510 to Receive Jelly Bean This Quarter

According to an Acer spokesperson, the company has official made plans to roll out Jelly Bean to the Iconia Tab A110, A210 and the A510 before the end of this year. On a less happy note, they also confirmed that the A100, A200, and A500 would not receive the update most likely due to limitations in [...]

Acer Silently Begins Pushing Jelly Bean To The Iconia Tab A700


Wouldn’t you know it – not long after ASUS has to delay the Jelly Bean update for the Transformer Pad Infinity, Acer silently starts pushing the update to the Iconia Tab A700.


Screenshot from XDA

There was no prior word that the update was coming, but we are actually pulling the 332MB OTA on our unit right now. Considering there are zero details at this time, we have no idea what other changes have been made, but hopefully Acer found a way to make this HD tablet run a little smoother this go around.

We’ll let you know once we’ve finished pulling if we find anything new and exciting, but for now, you can head into Settings > About tablet > System update to grab this one yourself.

Acer Iconia Tab A110 with Jelly Bean confirmed

The sub $200 tablet market is getting really serious with many different manufacturers releasing new tablets with great features with this price tag, or at least close to this price tag. We have already seen Google and Asus engineered Nexus 7 tablet which really made this market a place for competition, and Amazon with its all new Kindle Fire HD getting more serious about the market. There are also hundreds of other brand-less Android tablets in the market which sell for even less the cost of these tablets.

To add to this list, Acer has now officially come up with its new offering, the Acer Iconia Tab A110, the smaller cousin of the Iconia Tab A210. The tablet features a 7 inch screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. This is a bit less when compared to the major competition, Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire, which both offer resolutions of 1280 x 800 pixels.

But the Iconia Tab A110 has other tricks up its sleeves which are going to leave the competition in the dust. For example, the 8 GB on board storage which comes with the Acer Iconia Tab a110 can be expanded up to 32 GB with the provided microSD card slot. This is a very important and useful feature that the other two tablets don’t offer.

Also, the Acer Iconia Tab A110 has a 2 MP front facing camera for video calls, which is also higher specked than the other two tablets. To add to all this, the Iconia Tab A110 has an awesome quad core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor running the show with the help of 1 GB RAM.

All this for the expected price tag of £180, which converts to $292, in the UK. The company has not yet spoken of the US launch of the device, but it is expected to be launched soon with a price tag of $200. Interested buyers in the UK can pre order the tablet now at eBuyer.

Acer Iconia Tab A700 Review: This Is What Meh Looks Like In 1080p


I’m not going to lie: after reviewing the Toshiba Excite 7.7 and declaring the 7(ish)-inch form factor my favorite, it was an incredibly difficult task picking up the A700 and giving it a pure, objective review. It feels clunky, cumbersome, and heavy-as-heck in comparison to the Excite 7.7. Alas, I know there is a market for larger, 10.1″ tablets so I’ve done my best to keep an objective mind with this device because, fact is, not everyone is in love with the smaller form factor the way that I currently am.

With that said, let’s talk a little bit about the A700.

Acer Iconia Tab A700 unboxing and initial hands on review

Acer is making a splash with the Iconia Tab A700. They actually beat ASUS by being the first Android tablet to market with a full 1080p (1920 x 1080) display. For those who want all the bells and whistles, this one is going to be hard to ignore since it’s priced at $449. It features a 10.1-inch (1920 x 1080) Full HD display, a NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core, 12 core NVIDIA GeForce GPU, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, microSD slot for an additional 32GB of storage, 5MP rear camera, 1MP front-facing camera, Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR, GPS, micro USB, micro HDMI, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

This one’s a little thick at 10.92mm and isn’t light at all as it weighs in at 667 grams. We will do a full review shortly, but for now check out my initial hands on.

Acer Iconia Tab A700 Now Up for Pre Order

Acer is now accepting pre-orders for the Iconia Tab A700 in the U.S. and Canada. This tablet boasts of being the first Acer tablet having a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. Its Full HD quality display measures 10.1 inches and has an aspect ratio of 16:10 and a contrast ratio of 800:1. This screen offers a viewing angle of 178 degrees, meaning the image quality will be good for sharing the device with other people nearby since the screen doesn’t alter the color of the images up to the specified angle.

Its other specifications are quite similar with those of the Acer Iconia Tab A510. For instance, its screen also supports 10-point multitouch gestures. Its internal storage is likewise 32 GB, which users have the option of expanding through a micro SD card for up to 64 GB. Inside, the device runs on an NVIDIA Tegra 3quad-core processor as well as possesses Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as its operating system. A 12-core NVIDIA GeForce GPU is responsible for the graphics on the slate.

Due to its high resolution screen, the battery only promises 10 hours of video playback from its 9800mAh battery. This is two hours less than the battery life of the tablet that preceded it, which assured users of up to 12 hours of usage.

One of the device’s highlights is its sound, which is provided by Dolby Mobile 3 that is packed with home theater surround sound features. The device as well attempts to eliminate background noise, ensuring that the sound transmitted through video conferencing, or recorded via its built-in microphone, is of good quality.

The dual cameras, which have already been established as a standard in tablets, are moreover present. One facing the front has a 1 megapixel sensor and enhanced zoom. On the other hand, the rear camera has a 5 MP sensor, is able to record HD video, and is capable of autofocus.

The device is currently available from major retailers as well as on Acer’s online store. It has a price tag of $450.

Acer Iconia Tab A700 Now Available To Pre-Order For $450


We haven’t heard much about Acer’s tasty-looking ICS tablet since CES, but today the company made the quad-core Iconia Tab A700 available to pre-order in the US and in Canada.

a700 2 a700

Lest you forget, the tablet’s specs are quite impressive (if a bit more run of the mill now than they were in January) – here’s a rundown:

  • 1920 x 1200 “HD” display (that’s a 16:10 aspect ratio, though Acer apparently has the gall to market it as a 1080p screen, which would really be 16:9)
  • 10.5 hour battery life
  • Dolby Mobile 3 and 5.1 Channel Dolby Surround Sound via HDMI
  • microSD card slot and microUSB 2.0 ports
  • 1.3GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core CPU (with the now-famous “4-Plus-1″ design)
  • 12-core GeForce NVIDIA GPU
  • 1GB of RAM
  • Android 4.0 with Acer’s “Ring” interface
  • GPS
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
  • 32GB of flash storage
  • 9.8mm thickness
  • 5MP rear-facing and auto-focusing camera
  • 1MP front-facing camera
  • Black and silver colors

Faulty Component Delays Acer Iconia Tab A510, Olympic Edition May Still Ship Next Month

For those of you that wanted to get your hands on the Iconia Tab A510 from Acer you’ll have to wait a bit longer. While the Olympic Version of the device became available at the beginning of May, mass shipments appear to be delayed. The reason, faulty components. Which component being the culprit is anyone’s guess. What this means though is that both the A510, and the 3G version the A511 will both be delayed. For how long is again, anyone’s guess. A quick Amazon search (see below) does show that the product is under review and isn’t available.

With that being said, we’ll keep you posted on when this device becomes available again. On a positive front it’s good to note that Acer is saying that the Olympic version of the tablet is still a go for next month. This suggests that the problem is either nonexistent on those versions of the A510 or that Acer deems it more than enough time to weed out the issue. This may bode well for the non-Olympic and 3G counterparts as well, but only time will tell. While this could be considered bad press for Acer, the fact that they are fixing the problem before the masses purchase the device is nice to see.

Acer Halts Shipment Of Iconia Tab A510 Due To A Faulty Component, Confirms A700 Is On Track To Ship By June 11


A few hours ago, the Acer Germany page on Facebook (translated) posted an update stating that there was a fault with an important component in the A51x series of tablets. But Acer did not state which component failed to pass their quality control tests. Unfortunately, this means that there will be a delay in delivery of the Iconia Tab A510/A511 tablets, and Acer has been unable to confirm when the faulty component will be replaced.

Amazon has also stopped taking orders for the device as customers have reported that there could be something wrong with it.


Owners of the A510/A511 tablets who are concerned that they have a faulty device ought not to worry, as a recent comment by Acer on its Facebook page indicates that tablets that were already shipped passed their quality control tests.

WiFi Only Acer Iconia Tab A700 Approved by FCC

During CES a few months ago Acer debuted a Tegra 3 tablet known as the Iconia Tab A700 and since then the device kind of disappeared off the radar. Well I am happy to report that this 10.1-inch 1080p display carrying device is still moving forward as it’s made its way to the FCC. This WiFi-only version has been approved by the FCC and while documentation may  be limited it does show that it will carry a 1.3GHz quad-core NVIDIA SoC and will be running Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the gate. No word on an official launch date but it’s good to see that this tablet is still moving forward. Of course when it does finally arrive you’ll be paying a pretty penny for it.

Acer Iconia Tab A100 ICS update now hitting the masses

Acer Iconia Tab A100

Although Acer laid out their Iconia Tab ICS update list not all that long ago, it seems there has been some issues in the Acer camp with folks actually being able to you know, update their devices. The updates, more specifically for the Iconia Tab A100 have appeared for the most part on again, off again with some getting the update very early while others, very late.

No matter though, folks in the Android Central forums are now reporting the update appears to of have been potentially sorted out and an influx of those unable to previously update to ICS are now getting the update notification on their devices. Have you got it yet? If so, let us know in the Android Central forums.

[Head-To-Head] Acer Iconia Tab A510 Vs. ASUS Transformer Pad 300


Last week, we took an in-depth look at the newest tablet offerings from both ASUS and Acer: the Transformer Pad 300 and Iconia Tab A510, respectively. Both tablets pack NVIDIA’s powerhouse Tegra 3 quad-core processor, a 10.1-inch display, 1GB RAM, 32GB of storage, microSD card slot, and microHDMI port.

On paper, these two devices appear to be relatively similar, aside from the $50 difference in price ($450 for the A510, $400 for the TF300), which leaves a lot of would-be tablet owners trying to decide which one to buy. Since this can be a tough decision to make (they’re both excellent tablets), it’s time for a deathmatch.

Deal Alert: refurbished Acer Iconia Tab A500 on eBay for $239

If you’re craving some Ice Cream Sandwich goodness but can’t quite justify $399 for a new ASUS Transformer Pad 300, we feel you. Times are tough, and tablets – we freely admit – are a luxury. But if you can scrounge together about $240, you can grab a brand new Acer Iconia Tab A500, which has just been updated to Ice Cream Sandwich with a free helper app to boot. Sure, it’s not the best 10-inch Android tablet out there – but right now, it’s the best 10-inch Android tablet for $240.

The deal is going on over at eBay. Don’t worry, this isn’t somebody who picked up a shipment of tablets off the back of a truck: Acer’s selling them from their official corporate account. Shipping’s free too – something an old-school eBay user like yours truly learns to check for. Yes, the units in question are refurbished, but they also come with a 90-day warranty and are more than a hundred dollars off the list price, plus sixty dollars off similar refurbished tablets elsewhere.

If your memory’s rusty, the Iconia Tab A500 uses a Tegra 2 processor, a full gigabyte of memory and a 1280×800 10.1-inch display. The model on sale on eBay is just 8GB, but you can augment that with a MicroSD card. It’s also got a handy HDMI-out port. If you’re still not sure, read our review. For those of you who pull the trigger, go here to get the skinny on how to update your tablets to Android 4.0 right away.
