Acer Iconia Talk S is a new Android tablet that can make phone calls
Acer this week announced the Iconia Talk S, a brand new tablet that can make voice calls (as its name suggests). The slate has LTE connectivity, and dual SIM support, so you’ll be able to use both a personal, and a business phone number with it.

Running Android 4.4 KitKat, the Acer Iconia Talk S sports a 7-inch IPS display with 720 x 1280 pixels, further featuring: a 2 MP front-facing camera, 5 MP rear camera (without flash), 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, microSD card support (up to 128 GB), and a 3780 mAh battery. 

The tablet is powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor - thus, in the eventuality of an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop, it will be able to take full advantage of Google’s new OS.

The Acer Iconia Talk S will be on sale soon in Taiwan for about $250. Acer didn’t say if it’s planning to release the new slate in other markets - but it usually launches its tablets in various regions anyway. Would you buy the Iconia Talk S if you had the chance?

My grandma has relatively new Acer laptop, I can second that. Display is utterly terrible, no blacks nor viewing angles whatsover, countless software glitches, whole device is flimsy and I can easily guess that something will break down at some point. Can't remember the model, but it wasn't even that cheap. Asus and Lenovo are much better.

I kinda like this. Big for a phone, obviously, but small for a 7" tablet. Dual front speakers to boot. Resolution could be better, definitely, but for $250, it's still priced well. LTE probably won't work in the States or outside of Asia. It'd be a great device to swap your SIM card to once you get home, for watching Netflix or playing games.

I rather just pay a bit more for galaxy s 8.4 lte

It's has a better screen and 3gb ram.

Android run better with at least 2gb ram.
