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.

Yep, my HP laptop was exactly like that too...

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.
