Acer's Iconia Tablets: An MWC 2011 Hands-On
 
 

 

 

Earlier this morning I stopped by Acer's booth at the Mobile World Congress to check on their new line of tablets. The Iconia series currently consists of a 7" and 10" Android tablet, plus a 10" Windows 7 tablet with a special keyboard dock. All three share the same aluminum body and minimalist design.

The 10" Iconia is definitely my favorite tablet, in terms of feel. The weight is wonderfully centered. It feels solid without being heavy, and the aluminum body is just gorgeous. It doesn't grip as well as something like the Galaxy Tab 10.1", but it may be the only iPad-competitor to actually give Apple a run for their money in design.

 

 

 

Next, the 7" Iconia. It has the same basic specs as the 10"- a dual-core Tegra 250 processor and size options starting at 16 GB. It is just as thin as its big brother and basically looks like a chopped down version of the same tablet.

 

 

Last, we have the Windows 7 Iconia tablet. It also has a 10.1" display. This slate comes with a detachable keyboard dock for full laptop functionality. The demo units hadn't been fully set up yet when I stopped by, but the product itself looked extremely impressive. Acer expects both it and the 10.1" Android slate to cost $400-$500 when they launch in April.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
