There has not been an official announcement, which will probably arrive at IFA 2016 in Berlin in the coming weeks, but the new Acer Iconia Talk S (A1-734) is already a reality. The Taiwanese company, taking advantage of the summer break, published the product page of its new tablet (ed. Someone would call phablet), revealing a preview of the new design and the latest product specifications.
To look closely, now, the Acer Iconia Talk S (A1-734) has the same “aesthetic” dell’Iconia Tab 10 (A3-40) with a very elegant frame, much more polished than other models that ‘ preceded, albeit still in plastic with copper-colored (and we concentrate on the grid to the front speaker, the logo and the plate containing the webcam). The final aspect we like and even much, because the combination of colors and the choice of finishes enhances a device that after all “is considered” low-cost.
The Iconia Talk S features have remained unchanged: Acer calls it an ideal tablet “to talk and carry out any activity”, thus also generating the latter will have telephone functions thanks to 4G-LTE integrated module, with a speed up to 150 Mbps in download and 50 Mbps upload. You can call your contacts in your address book, send text messages and surf the Internet, while the pre-installed Microsoft Office suite and the Google Mobile services will allow you to perform any job action and entertainment in a single device. With the ability to use two SIM, the Iconia Talk S allows users to simultaneously access multiple networks with a single device, thus ensuring greater flexibility and more effective management of telephone charges. This feature is especially useful for those who are often torn between two worlds: frequent travelers, for example, are able to use their SIM home and local boards, cutting the cost of roaming and remaining at the same time also always available traveling, while professionals can keep up at the same time of their personal and professional lives.
Turning to the technical specifications, the Acer Iconia Talk S (A1-734) tacks on a quad-core MediaTek MT8735 1.3GHz processor, LTE modem Cat.4 already integrated and graphics Mali T720 MP2, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage memory expandable. The screen 7-inch (exactly 6.89 inches) has HD resolution (1280 x 720 pixels) and the front houses a 2 megapixel camera, paired with a 13 megapixel camera on the back. Acer Iconia Talk S (A1-734) runs on Android 6.0 and is sold Marshmallow precisely with this release on board. We notice particular customization of the user interface, just like on other tablet, but only a few pre-installed applications such as EZ Utilities, GameZone and Kids Center, to facilitate the learning of children.
Acer Iconia Talk S will soon be on sale in Italy at just over 200 Euros.
