Acer has a strange Android gaming tablet in the work

Practicing economy of words, space, and resources, Acer just dumped a bunch of device announcements all in one press conference, revealing a broad range of products from a Windows Phone, to a gaming monitor, to 2-in-1 tablets, to Android tablets. It seems, however, that the company has some other things up its sleeves not yet ready for an announcement, at least until the end of this year. Acer is surprisingly dipping its toes in a rather niche Android gaming tablet market tablet market that very few vendors occupy. And that's not without good reason.

It's small enough to fit in your backpack if you really want to be a traveling projectionist. This little beast is just one of three new projectors revealed by Acer this week in New York City.

Acer’s first Chromebase all-in-one is no joke

Acer’s first Chromebase all-in-one is no joke

This morning Acer announced what they suggest is the industry's first Chromebase All-In-One Desktop with Touch Display. We know good and well that this isn't the first Chromebase device in the world - there's an LG Chromebase as well, for example - but it IS the first Chromebase All-In-One machine with a touchscreen monitor. This bit trumps the LG Chromebase we saw about a year ago, of course. And just so you're aware - this is one of the few product announcements you'll see today, April 1st, April Fools' Day, that isn't a prank.

Acer Iconia Tab 10 Android tablet flaunts Full HD display

It's been a while since we've heard from Acer's budget Iconia Tab line and apparently the OEM has been busy. Although the company's affordable devices sometimes earn it the connotation of being cheap, whether deserved or not, this time it isn't holding back. At least too much. While the new Iconia Tab 10 does still fall under the category of budget tablet, Acer is at least giving it a worthy Full HD screen, which, with Zero Air Gap tech, makes it a rather worthy one for the price.

Acer C910 Chromebook adds faster chip option

Acer C910 Chromebook adds faster chip option

Acer has injected a little extra grunt into its C910 Chromebook, throwing a faster Core i5 processor at the 15.6-inch notebook. The new model fleshes out a range generally under-served in Chrome OS machines, with a larger screen than the majority of notebooks running Google's cloud-centric platform. Previously, Acer only offered the C910 with a choice of Intel Celeron and Core i3 chips, but even with the new, more potent silicon under the hood, is promising as much as eight hours use on a single charge.
