We are live at COMPUTEX 2014 getting all your mobile coverage and the main protagonist here is the Acer Iconia Tab 8. This tablet is made with media consumption and gaming in mind, so it’s no weak link. Let’s take a look at it!
The device comes packed with a quad-core Intel Atom processor, 2 GB of RAM and Android 4.4 KitKat. They have also put close attention to the display, which is important for any device focused on media and gaming. As such, the Iconia Tab 8 comes packed with a 1920x1200p screen, which is surprising for an 8-inch display.
Though what we played with was a pre-production model, it didn’t seem to perform badly. It worked well and was fairly smooth. After all, that Atom processor is pretty powerful.
We are not as big fans of the build quality, though. The device doesn’t feel amazingly solid, but it will come with a nice price point. The device should cost 200 Euros when released in Europe, and probably $200 in the USA.
