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

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

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...

First On TechTree: Review: Acer ICONIA-484G64ns

 

Two times the iPad, for better or worse.

Innovative concept; Great specs; Impressive build quality; Acer Ring application; Great for show-offs

Poor Battery life; Too heavy to carry; No inbuilt card reader; Buggy touch interface; Expensive

Acer Iconia

 

The Acer Iconia pioneers the new touchbook form factor, replacing the keyboard with a second display.

When the Acer Iconia first arrived at the office we weren’t sure what to think of the notebook-tablet hybrid. But after spending some time with the device and seeing firsthand just how nice it is to use its dual-touch interface, we’re staunch converts...

Simply the best...

 

A full-blown computer in a tablet. Runs Windows 8 Pro(x64) at a lighting speed. Being a software developer, I immediately installed Office 2010 and Visual Studio 2012. All applications work AOK so far, and actually perform faster than on my I7 Window 7...
