Acer has announced the release of a plethora of new products at this years Computex at the company's home country of Taiwan. Both 10-inch Android tablets, the Iconia One 10 will focus on productivity while the Iconia Tab 10 targets media consumers.

Not content with just releasing its Acer Spin 1 convertible and Nitro 5 Windows laptops, Acer has also released a pair of Iconia 10-inch tablets running Android 7.0. The Iconia Tab 10 is targeted for media consumption, while the Iconia One 10 is being pitched as a productivity tablet.

The Iconia Tab 10's standout features are its quantum dot display (presumably QLED) and sound-system. The Tab 10's audio will be bolstered by four speakers and a sub-woofer — all in a tablet 0.35-inches thin.

The Iconia One 10 lacks the multimedia chops of the Tab 10, but features a second micro-USB port. Acer suggests that the One 10 can be used as a productivity tablet once paired with a keyboard and mouse, taking advantage of Android 7.0's improved windowed app support.

Release dates and pricing will be made public for each market area individually as the dates near.

I am a university Lecturer and researcher in English writing, but I like to keep myself busy. Between weightlifting, MMA, and SCUBA diving, one of my life-long interests has always been computers. I used Macs until about 17 years ago when I switched to PCs because of an interest in games, but I'm still interested in top quality laptops that push the design envelope.
