Acer recently announced the addition of leading touch capabilities to its line of Iconia One 8 tablets with the new Iconia One 8 B1-820. Featuring Acer Precision Plus technology, it offers a highly accurate touch and writing experience. The screen’s enhanced accuracy makes it ideal for writing and sketching with the optional Acer Accurate Stylus, while the Acer Iconia Suite of touch tools simplifies tasks with touch gestures and quick access icons.
In addition to its bright, crystal-clear 8-inch HD display (1280 x 800) with Zero Air Gap and IPS technology, it includes a powerful Intel Atom quad core processor, 16GB or 32GB of storage and the latest version of Android 5.0 (Lollipop), making it powerful enough for productivity tasks, watching videos and gaming.
The Iconia One 8 B1-820 offers up to 8.5 hours of battery life, for all day use. In addition, the enhanced user interface includes a more responsive and colorful design with realistic lighting and shadows while still retaining familiar visual elements. An improved Notification System provides new ways to control when and how messages are received.
The new Iconia One 8 includes a VGA front camera and a 5MP rear camera; the rear camera also supports 88 degree wide angle captures, allowing more people and/or scenery to be included in shots.
Weighing just 355 grams (12.5 ounces) and 9.5 mm thin, the Iconia One 8 is available in ten eye- catching colors. A textured tartan crisscross pattern on the back provides a sophisticated cloth-like aesthetic and tactile feel for a secure grip.
