Apart from these smartphones and a smartband, Acer has also launched the Iconia Tab 8 tablet ahead of Computex that will start off next week in Taiwan. The company announced that the tablet will be available starting the third quarter, but did not reveal its pricing.

There are no specifications mentioned in the techvorm report regarding battery but it claims to be a powerful one that has 7.5 hours of life while viewing videos.
The tablet sports a sleek and elegant design with a refined classy metallic silver rear cover and slim profile that easily fits in one hand and is just 8.5mm thin weighing 360 grams. The Iconia Tab 8's display also includes an anti-fingerprint coating that avoids messy fingerprints, making it much easier to clean and read. It also features dual speakers for a surround sound effect with clear and much original audio effect.
The Acer Tab sports Acer Touch WakeApp which lets users wake up the Iconia Tab 8 faster and easily with a simple touch gesture.
