The title of this article may sound a bit weird, but that’s exactly what Acer is doing in a recent video (embedded below): it’s explaining why your body wants you to carry around an Iconia Tab 8
Android slate, rather than a laptop, or a smartphone. The reasons are simple: unlike a laptop, the Iconia Tab 8 is lightweight (360 grams), so your shoulder - which "loves
that laptop bag" - will feel relieved to see you owning Acer’s tablet. Moreover, unlike a smartphone, the Iconia Tab 8 has a large display (8 inches, 1200 x 1920 pixels), so you won’t have to strain your eyes. Of course, what Acer won’t tell you is that, for the same reasons, you could also get a tablet made by another company.
Officially announced several months ago, the Iconia Tab 8 is currently available in Europe for around €199. It doesn’t seem like you can buy it in the US, at least not for now.
Running Android 4.4 KitKat, the Acer Iconia Tab 8 is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom Z3745 processor clocked at 1.3 GHz. Other features include stereo speakers, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, microSD card support, and a 4300 mAh battery.
