Iconia Tab 8 announced! It’s got the new Android OS (KitKat), a quad-core Intel Atom Z3745 running at 1.33GHZ, 16GB Internal Storage, Micro SD port, 5MP Rear / 2MP Front Cameras, 1920 x 1200 resolution 8″ Full HD IPS 10-point multitouch display and more with up to 7.5 hours of battery life. Cowabunga, this is a powerful tablet people. As somebody who has tried it all, Samsung, Apple, and even owned Iconia Tab line products, I would totally give this piece a chance and think it’s a great value offering.
The Aspire Switch comes in a variety of forms but at its core it’s an amazingly priced Windows 8 Tablet / Computer hybrid. I’ve been wanting one of these for a while but the price just wasn’t right. Now Acer is making me reconsider with models that start at just $329.99 and keep in mind this is not just a tablet, it’s an entirely functional laptop PC as well. This means, full desktop applications that you already use on your tower at home, but on a way faster disk drive with great display and metro mode for when you just need tablet convenience.
