Acer outs three new models of its Liquid Leap wearable


Last month, Acer teased a trio of new wearables in New York City. Today it’s making them official. Enter the Liquid Leap Active, Leap Curve and Leap Fit, all designed with fitness, activity tracking and removable bands in mind. The Fit is the only one with a heart rate sensor, though, while the Curve and Active focus on offering features such as a curved display and sleep pattern-monitoring, respectively. Acer’s staying mum on pricing and availability right now, but the company did say we’ll learn those details at Computex 2015 next week. In the meantime, at least there’s some eye candy to hold you over until then.

Acer announces its first Android gaming tablet


pred-tablet

Acer have been pretty busy lately. It has now officially announced its first Android gaming table, which the Taiwanese company states goes hand-in-hand with its Predator PC’s. The slate, which has been rather aptly named the Predator Tab, is set to go on sale in Quarter 4 of 2015.

Unfortunately, we have no solid information with regards to specifications, but we do know that the device will pack an 8-inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, a quartet of front-facing speakers and an aluminium unibody design.

Check out the full set of press shots below:

Acer unveils a new 15-inch Chromebook, Iconia One 8 tablet and gaming-centric Predator tablet


Chromebook 15 CB3-531_05_high

At a press event held in New York earlier today, Acer announced a slew of new products that will all be available sometime this year. The company announced a very budget-friendly Chromebook and tablet, another tablet meant for the education market and has plans to bring a higher-end gaming-centric tablet to market as well. Let’s take a look at Acer’s new offerings:

Acer Chromebook 15 (CB3-531)

First up is the Intel Celeron-powered 15.6-inch Chromebook. Dubbed the CB3-531, this Chromebook has an N2830 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage and expandable memory up to 128GB. It has a 1366 x 768 resolution, boasts up to 11 hours of battery life on a single charge, and has all of the normal ports found on today’s standard Chromebooks – one USB 3.0 port, one audio jack and one HDMI port.

If you’re looking for a Chromebook that doesn’t sacrifice performance in any way, you may want to pass on this one. However, it will be available in the U.S. in July starting at just $199.99, so maybe this isn’t a bad deal after all. Take a look at the images below for a closer look.

Acer Iconia One 8 (B1-820) Tablet

Next up is the budget-friendly Iconia One 8 Tablet from Acer. Available for just $149 starting in July, this 8-inch tablet boasts a 1280 x 800 resolution, runs Android 5.0 Lollipop, and measures just 9.5mm thin. It runs on an Intel Atom quad-core processor, comes with 16 or 32GB of on-board storage, and is also slated to provide up to 8.5 hours of battery life on a single charge.

Iconia Tab 10 (A3-A30) Tablet

The next tablet on the list is called the Iconia Tab 10, scheduled to arrive in schools around the U.S. this May. It features a 10.1-inch display with a 1920 x 1200 resolution, an Intel Atom processor, 2GB of RAM and 16/32/64GB of on-board storage. It also runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and is part of the Google Education ecosystem. This tablet will be available in the United States and in parts of Europe for $299 and €299, respectively.

Acer Predator Tablet

pred-tablet

Last but certainly not least, we have the Acer Predator Tablet. To coincide with the company’s Predator PCs, this gaming-focused tablet features four front-facing speakers and an 8-inch display (resolution unknown). It isn’t set to launch until Q4 of this year, which is why details on the device are so scarce right now. We do, however, know that it will have some sort of haptic feedback feature that should make the tablet rumble when you’re taking hard corners in Asphalt 8, for instance. Acer still hasn’t revealed specs, pricing or release date information, but we’ll be sure to update you when that info surfaces.

Acer’s Liquid X2 smartphone is another globetrotter’s dream


Sure, you probably don’t need a smartphone with a massive 4,000mAh battery and a trio of SIM card slots, but thanks to Acer, your author can’t stop thinking about one. Acer’s so-called Liquid X2 is clearly well-equipped to play globetrotter, but (just like the Predator tablet) the company’s spokespeople were awfully light on the details. Still, we know it comes with a 5.5-inch screen and a 64-bit octa-core processor thrumming away within its surprisingly sleek frame, along with a pair of 13-megapixel cameras nestled high along its face and back. At last, a device that takes selfies as seriously as HTC’s Desire Eye.

Can’t stop ruminating on those SIM slots, can you? It might seem a little ridiculous — because it is — but that’s nothing new for Acer. It’s been pushing tri-SIM phones since last summer when it pulled back the curtain on the Liquid E700 and now that predilection for threeway connectivity has migrated to a phone you might actually want to buy. Too bad no one was willing to talk price yet.

Alas, the only units to be found on-site were tucked away in an acrylic box, far from my prying, sandwich-stained fingers. On the upside, though, the X2 will be accompanied by a slew of Quick Flip covers in a slew of colors that leave a strip of screen unobscured to give you quick status updates and tidbits of information. With a little tweaking, you can coax them into telling you how much storage space is being eaten up by your photos and music for instance, or providing you a quick Airplane Mode toggle for when you jump on one of your interminable flights. There’s no word yet on whether the Liquid X2 will never claw its way out of Acer’s native Asia, but it’s certainly not impossible. After all, today also saw the launch of the Acer Liquid M220 — an $80 Windows Phone we first got acquainted with back at Mobile World Congress — on US shores.

Acer takes the wraps off new CB3-531 Chromebook


Chromebook 15 CB3-531_02

Earlier today, Acer took the wraps off the fourth variant of its 15.6-inch Chromebook, the CB3-531. This model packs similar internals to all the previous generation of the device, but now features a 11.5 hour battery, which the company claims is the longest any Chromebook currently on the market has to offer.

Aside from the upgraded battery, little else appears to differ. The CB3-531 continues to sport 4GB of DDR3 RAM, 16GB of SSD storage, two front-facing speakers, an Intel processor and an LED-backlit TFT LCD display which has a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels.

The laptop has built-in Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, 4G connectivity, one USB 2.0 port, One USB 3.0 port, an SDcard slot and an HDMI out slot — so you’ll always have the facility to share files, connect to the internet, mirror your screen and transfer documents.

The full gallery of Acer CB3-531 Chromebook press images can be seen below:

Deal: Refurbished Acer C7, CB5 and Touchscreen Chromebooks up to 46% off from Ebay


Acer Chromebook Ebay deal

If you’ve been wanting to try out a Chromebook for yourself but haven’t been sold on the price quite yet, Ebay may have a deal that will change your mind. Right now, you can pick up a refurbished Acer C7, CB5 or Touchscreen Chromebook for up to 46% off.

Let’s start out with the cheapest of the bunch, Acer’s 11.6-inch C7 Chromebook (pictured above). Ebay is selling a refurbished model for just $149.99, which is 34% off the computer’s normal retail price. It’s powered by a dual-core Intel Celeron Processor with 2GB of RAM and includes all of the basics – a 1.3MP HD webcam, one HDMI port, one VGA port and a 2-in-1 memory card slot. Although the specifications aren’t the best, it’s hard denying that $150 is a great deal for this computer.

Acer CB5 Chromebook

Next up is the Acer Chromebook 13. Ebay is selling this refurbished computer for $159.99 – 46% off the normal retail price. It has a 13.3-inch full HD display, Nvidia Tegra K1 processor, 16GB of on-board storage and a battery that can last up to 11 hours on a single charge. This is perhaps the best deal out of them all, so I’d suggest checking into this if you’re in the market for a new computer.

Acer Touchscreen Chromebook

Last but not least, we have the Acer Touchscreen Chromebook. Ebay is selling the refurbished model for $189.99, which is 36% off. This Chromebook has an 11.6-inch touchscreen display and is powered by a 1.4GHz Intel Celeron processor and 2GB of RAM. While this computer doesn’t have the best specs either, 36% off is still a great deal.

All three of these Chromebooks have gotten great ratings around the web, so if you’re okay with going the refurbished route, we’d suggest you check out these deals before it’s too late. If you’re interested, head to the links below to start shopping.
