The Acer Predator 8 GT-810 tablet enters the scene and it's a monstrous little machine tailor-made for gamers: it all starts with the Alien-like design, but it's not just about the visuals, as the slate features four front-facing speakers that provide virtual surround sound and there is tactile feedback via Predator TacSense tech for more immersive gameplay.
So what is this Acer Predator 8 GT-810 all about? Let's first take a quick look at its spec highlights:
- Android 5.1 Lollipop-powered
