Acer introduces Iconia Tab 8 with full-HD display

Acer's latest tablet features an Intel Atom quad-core CPU and Android 4.4 KitKat along with an 8", full-HD display.

Computex 2014 is set to kick off on Monday, coinciding with Apple's WWDC event as always, and Acer is starting the party a bit early. The company took the wraps off their latest tablet, the Iconia Tab 8 which looks to rival the iPad Mini and other midsize tablets.

Coming in at 8" and featuring a full-HD IPS display with a resolution of 1920x1200, the Tab 8 is one of the few Android tablets that are powered by Atom processors. A Bay Trail Z3745 CPU powers the KitKat OS, but Wi-Fi, microSD and 7.5 hours of battery life are the only other specs that have been unveiled so far.

Acer is also touting "Zero Air Gap" technology on the Tab 8's display, claiming that it reduces light reflection and provides better readability under sunlight. Sadly, there is no word on exact pricing and availability outside of an expected Q3 launch, but we fully expect more details to be available in Taiwan later this week where we'll be on hand as usual.
