Review Acer Iconia Dual Screen Tablet

 

Touchbook. The Iconia is the Ferrari in Acer's tablet campaign. W ...

Application performance ; Control concept ; Low waste heat ; Virtual keyboard/mouse

Narrow viewing angles ; No internal cardreader ; High weight & bulkiness ; Short battery life ; Long charge time ; No DVD drive ; Short manufacturer warranty

If you are accustomed to a tablet computer, you'll easily manage the Iconia and won't want a "real" notebook anymore

Acer Iconia One 7 Review and Ratings

 

A budget 7-inch Android tab, the Iconia One 7 has a decent screen and design for its aggressively low price, but expect some nontrivial trade-offs in battery life, camera quality, and other areas.

Low price ; Light weight feels good for one-handed use ; Nice viewing angles for a budget tablet

So-so battery life ; Display is prone to glare ; Awkward placement of ports ; Heavy on the bloatware

The Iconia One 7 is one of the few very low-cost tablets that's both from a brand with decent name recognition and that you might actually want to

First Look: Acer Iconia

Two screens, very futuristic, bottom screen can be used for keyboard, interactive menu or anything else

It's a virtual keyboard, it's expensive, do you really need it?

Acer Iconia One 8 hands-on review

 

We're not seeing many tablets launched at the moment compared to previous years but Acer has provided us with a few new ones across Android and Windows. The new Iconia One 8 will satisfy those looking for a medium size device on a budget.

There's not much to get excited about when it comes to the Acer Iconia One 8. But this little tablet is quite good looking, very affordable and comes with almost stock Android 5.0 Lollipop making it potentially a great value purchase for those not...

Acer Iconia One 7 hands-on review

 

At its event in New York, Acer has announced another budget tablet so here's our review of the Acer Iconia One 7. Read: The 25 best tablets of 2014.

The budget price of the Iconia One 7 is reflected in the quality of its hardware with lackluster cameras and a not very impressive screen. It's cheap and cheerful so doesn't look like one we'll be recommending but check back for the full review soon to...

Hands On: We take a quick look at Acer's new dual screen laptop / tablet.

Nov, 2010

Expert review by: Xiomara Blanco (cnet.com.au)

If you're on a shoestring budget, it's hard to argue against this tablet

 

Simple and forgettable is the story of Acer's Iconia One 7. In fact, it's almost as if Acer took it out of a time capsule from 2012.

The Acer Iconia One 7 starts at $130 and has a micro-SD card expansion slot

The thick design is outdated, its plastic build feels filmsy, and the screen's range of color is underwhelming

If you're on tightest of budgets, the Acer Iconia One 7 will meet your needs for very casual use, but don't expect more than that.

Acer Iconia One 7

 

In the past I have looked at various Acer laptops and now I have the opportunity to check out one of the company's tablets.

The Acer Iconia One 7 is a tablet aimed at the budget market sector. As its title indicates, this tablet is of the 7-inch variety. The unit is available in a range of colours that include red, white, blue, green and yellow. My review sample is of the...
