Acer Announces A Couple Of Budget Handsets For The U.S.

There's no shortage of budgets handsets floating around out there in the States, and Acer just threw its name into the arena with a couple of low-mid-range (that's a thing, right?) handsets: the Liquid Jade Z and Liquid Z410. Catchy.

I'll be the first to tell you that neither of these phones are meant for power users. Instead, they're for folks who don't care about any of the following: updates, speed, size, processor, or anything else really. I.E. - probably none of you guys.

But they are for users who care about one thing: price.

Now, if you're still interested, here are some details.

Acer Is Making A Gaming Tablet Called Predator, Looks As Ugly As Predator From The Movies

No one is going to claim that tablet designs are exactly innovative. After all, they're pretty much all thin slabs of plastic or metal with big touchscreens. Maybe they need more pointy bits? Acer certainly thinks so, which is why it's planning to release a gaming tablet called Predator. It's not an attractive device.

Acer Iconia Tab 8 Review: A Lot Of Tablet For Not A Lot Of Money

Three years ago (or thereabouts), if you would've asked me about Acer tablets, my response would likely have been something similar to DeAndre Jordan's face after this nasty dunk over Brandon Knight back in 2013. Or, to put it a little more bluntly, there probably wouldn't have been anything positive to say. At all.

The company has come a long way since then, and I feel like it has been offering especially good value for the money as of late, and the Iconia Tab 8 may be the crown jewel of its collection. The weakest link in most of its predecessors was the display, which Acer has (finally) corrected on this go.

Acer Launches Iconia One 8 Powered By Intel, And MediaTek-Powered Iconia Tab 10

Just about every major electronics manufacturer has something to show off at IFA 2014, and Acer is no exception. Amidst announcements for a handful of new laptop models, a few tablets made it on stage for a little bit of time in the spotlight. In a creative twist, the two Android tablets featured during the presentation were equipped with significantly different processors. Acer's Iconia One 8 is packing a quad-core processor from Intel while the Iconia Tab 10 is equipped with a MediaTek quad-core processor.

Acer is pulling to make the Iconia One series a little more personal and considerably more powerful than the Iconia One 7 introduced earlier this year.

Acer Iconia One 7 Lightning Review: Basically What You'd Expect For $130

Acer is one of those companies that, in my mind, builds very good budget-friendly hardware. It may not offer the fastest or the best on the block, but when you're on a tight budget, Acer is always a solid choice.

The same goes for its Android devices – Acer has done a pretty good job of placing itself in the "budget, but not really awful" category when it comes to its mobile division. The company's budget-friendly A1-830 is a great example of a decent piece of hardware for not a lot of moneydollars, and it seems pretty clear to me that it thinks affordable devices are the direction to go in moving forward.

Acer Unveils The Budget-Minded Iconia Tab 7 And One 7 Android-Powered 7-Inch Tablets

Today at its "A Touch More Connected" launch event in New York, Acer pulled the curtain off a plethora of new electronics. Most of them were Windows products, but a couple are here for those who would prefer something running Android: the Iconia Tab 7 and the Iconia One 7. Neither product is particularly powerful, and the latter gives consumers another One product to keep up with.

The Iconia Tab 7 has an unspecified quad-core processor, a 1280x800 display, a microSD card slot, and up to 6 hours of battery life. It comes with 3G connectivity and a fresh serving of KitKat.

Acer A1-830 Lightning Review: There Are Worse Ways To Spend $180

While many budget smartphones have come a long way in proving that "affordable" no longer necessarily means "bad" over the past few years (Moto G, anyone?), the budget tablet is still oftentimes a gamble. On one hand, devices like the Nexus 7 provide a fantastic user experience for not a lot of moneydollars; on the other, there are devices like the Snakebyte Vyper that basically verify the saying "you get what you pay for." Of course, some manufacturers – like ASUS, for example – seem to have a better handle on the art of building usable, affordable tablets. Acer has also made somewhat of a name for itself in the budget tablet game, but they haven't all been zingers – the Acer Iconia A100 and A110 both had very lackluster displays, for example.

Acer Announces New Aio Android-Powered Desktop With 27-Inch 2560 x 1440 Touchscreen Plus A Pair Of Iconia Tablets

That tiny Android tablet you've been using is cute and all, but Acer is doing big things with Android. I mean physically big. The newly announced Aio (model TA272HUL) is a massive 27-inch all-in-one desktop system that runs Android on a high resolution WQHD touchscreen.

Acer's Extend Concept Is A New Smartphone-Workstation Prototype That Looks Kind Of Familiar

Part of the reason I was drawn to the Chromebook Pixel is that it's essentially a thin client for accessing the same content I interact with using my phones and tablets. Having to move and maintain files between separate machines is a chore I no longer wish to deal with, so I'm happy to see that this issue may soon be a thing of the past. Today at IFA, Acer demoed its Extend prototype, a laptop-dock that could enable you to use a smartphone as a your primary computer.

If this concept sounds familiar, that's because it is. A couple years ago, Motorola introduced the Motorola Atrix 4g and a proprietary dock called the lapdock - a laptop without a brain that only worked when the Atrix was docked in its back.

Acer Announces Liquid S2 With 4K Video Recording, Iconia A3 Tablet, And 24" Android-Powered All-In-One Ahead Of IFA

Prepare for a week filled with new product announcements, Android newshounds. Acer isn't letting their rivals get the better of them at IFA in Berlin (or indeed at the pre-show events that are becoming standard). This morning the company announced no less than three new products: the Liquid S2, a 6-inch Android phone with 1080p video recording, the 10.1-inch Iconia A3 tablet, and the DA241HL, a 24-inch all-in-one desktop powered by Android 4.2.

The Liquid S2 is the sequel to last year's S1 which ups the ante with a 6-inch 1080p LCD screen and a Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor. But the real star of this device is its 13-megapixel real camera, which is capable of recording in 4K resolution.
