Acer is not one of the high flying names in the mobile space and has struggled to make a successful transition from its PC heritage. That said, the company tends to make decent hardware that is affordable, and that has been summed up by its new tablet line-up launched at IFA. The company has rolled out three new slates in Berlin, each delivering the typical Acer bang for buck.The Iconia One Tab 8 is an 8-inch tablet that gets a quad-core Intel Atom processor and an 8-inch, 1,280 x 800 IPS display. Other specs are standard fare for tablets, such as some pretty useless cameras and a microSD card slot to expand the 16GB of space on board. The slate will run the latest full version of Android, version 4.4 KitKat. If you're thinking you would like the Iconia One Tab 8 but are not a fan of Android, then you could get the Iconia One Tab 8 W. The W stands for Windows as this is a Windows 8.1 toting version of the One Tab 8 that is exactly the same as the Android version apart from that change of platform. One added addition is the inclusion of one year?s subscription to Microsoft's Office 365. Both Iconia One Tab 8 models are launching next month in Europe for ?150, and in the US in November for $150. If more screen real estate is your thing then the Iconia One Tab 10 could be for you. This 10-inch slate sports a full HD (1,920 x 1080) IPS display and a quad core Mediatek processer. This Android 4.4 tablet also packs a micro-HDMI. It will be on sale during September and will cost ?199 in Europe and $199 in the US.
