Acer has revealed two new Iconia tablets as part of its device launches today, as well as bringing one smartphone to the United States for the first time. The Iconia Tab 10 is a tablet aimed at education, the Iconia One 8 offers advanced touch capabilities, and the Liquid M220 smartphone running Windows Phone 8.1 will be arriving in Microsoft Stores in the coming months.
Acer has introduced three Android smartphones at Mobile World Congress, alongside the Liquid Leap+ and the Windows Phone-based Liquid M220. The Liquid Z220 and Liquid Z520 are entry-level devices, while the Liquid Jade Z follows on from the Liquid Jade S as a high-end smartphone, but slightly dialed back in specification to make it a more affordable mobile device.
Acer has introduced an updated version of its fitness tracker, now known as the Liquid Leap+. The device offers all of the typical fitness features, in a water-resistant package that retails for less than $90. The company has upgraded the Leap Manager utility to work with all major smartphone platforms, including Android, iOS and Windows Phone. Like other fitness trackers, the Leap+ allows users to monitor their daily activity, exercise routines and sleep cycles, or access basic notifications from their paired phones.
Acer is adding two more devices to its Liquid range, including the company's first wearable device. Both the Liquid Jade smartphone and the Liquid Leap smart watch were briefly shown at the New York City event, though unlike the tablets and computers it also featured, the company has offered little in terms of detail for either of the two devices.
Acer has unveiled a pair of budget Android smartphones heading to Europe in the coming months, following on from the earlier Liquid Z3 and Liquid E2. The Liquid E3 offers a 4.7-inch IPS in an 8.9mm-thick (0.35 inches) case and a 2-megapixel front camera with LED flash, while the Liquid Z4 houses a smaller 4-inch display, with both offering a rear-mounted AcerRapid button to take images even if the screen is turned off.
Acer has revealed three new Android devices it will be showing off at IFA this week, alongside extra options for current tablets. The Iconia A3, complete with a 10.1-inch, 1280x800 IPS LED display, is accompanied by a 24-inch all-in-one for desktops, the 6-inch Liquid S2 smartphone, and new color choices for the Iconia A1 and Iconia B1 tablets.
Acer has launched the latest budget device in its Liquid smartphone line. The low-cost Liquid Z3 provides a 3.5-inch touchscreen display, though it is thought not to be a high-resolution panel, along with a dual-core 1GHz processor from an unnamed manufacturer, and 4GB of storage packed into a relatively lightweight 120-gram (4.2-ounce) case.
Acer has used Computex to reveal a new Windows 8 tablet and an Android smartphone. The previously leaked Iconia W3 is the first in the world to take advantage of Microsoft's relaxed Windows 8 tablet requirements by using an 8.1-inch display, while the Liquid S1 continues the Liquid range of mobile phones and is the first "phablet" from the company.
Acer has unveiled a follow-up to the Liquid E1 smartphone, revealed earlier this year. The Liquid E2 retains the same general appearance of its predecessor, though its 4.5-inch screen is a qHD IPS display, its processor is bumped upwards from a dual-core 1GHz processor to a 1.2GHz quad-core version, but keeps the same 1GB of RAM.
Acer has released details relating to the European rollout of two smartphones. The mid-range Liquid E1, launched last month, and the entry-level Liquid Z2 will both be made available in Europe at the same time, with France, Belgium, the Netherlands, and the Ukraine being the first to receive it, followed by the UK, Italy, and Russia.
