Acer started the 2014 by announcing 2 new Android all-in-one devices as well as upgrading 2 Iconia tablets which is considered as mid-range tablets with affordable prices.
So, let’s see what’s new and what’s improved:
This year, the refreshed Iconia line-up includes the 7.9-inch A1-830 and 7-inch B1-720.
A1-830 General Specifications:
- 7.9-inch LED-backlit display with IPS technology
- 1,024 x 768 resolution
- 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor
- 1GB of RAM, 16GB of Internal Storage, microSD card support
- 2560 x 1920 and 1600 x 1200 resolutions, for the Rear and Front camera
- Android Jelly Bean 4.2.1
- 7.5 hours of battery life

B1-720 is more budget friendly than A1 and Acer had to sacrifice some features to maintain the price at lower range. Some of the mina features of B1-730 are: 7-inch screen, 1.3GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 5 hours of battery life.
Both devices will be available in North America this quarter (However B1 might be released by the end of the month) and you need to $149 and $130 for the A1 and B1, respectively.
Android All-in-One (AIO) desktops with bigger screens as much as 21.5inches or 27inches might not be as useful, but the new Acer potable AIO devices seem kind of tempting. You can either enjoy playing Android games or run application on these big monitors, or use it to project devices with Windows OS.
The Acer TA272 HUL features a 27-inch display with 2,560 x 1,440 resolutions, NVIDIA Tegra quad-core processor, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, 16GB of internal storage, USB 3.0 and HDMI port, and the touch screen identifies up to 10 points.
Both TA272 and DA223 are available worldwide and the retail prices for these AIOs are $1099 and $699.
