Acer’s new Iconia tablet line includes Intel, Windows 8, and Android

Acer kicked off its week at IFA with three new Iconia tablets including one that runs on a MediaTek processor and two that powered by Intel’s Atom SoC. There’s Android and Windows offerings in there too, thanks to the presence of the Iconia 8 W.

The Iconia Tab 10 (pictured above) and Iconia One 8 are both Android devices, though the the former runs on a quad-core MediaTek processor while the latter runs on a Intel’s power-efficient Z3735G Atom. The Windows-powered Iconia Tab 8 W is also based on Intel’s  Z3735G.

The Iconia Tab 8 W boasts an 8-inch 1280 x 800 HD display, features front- and rear-facing cameras, dual stereo speakers, and weighs in at just under a pound. It ships with Windows 8.1. The Iconia One 8 sounds like almost the same device but packaged with Android 4.4 instead of Windows 8.1. Acer wasn’t exactly generous with the specs, so it’s hard to tell what the differences in hardware are, though the Android version is a little bit lighter.

The 10-inch Iconia Tab 10 features a 10.1-inch FHD screen with Zero Air Gap technology, support for micro HDMI and Wireless Dipslay. It runs on the aforementioned quad-core CPU from MediaTek, though Acer hasn’t named the specific CPU.

The Iconia Tab 10 will launch first, arriving in Europe this month priced at €199. The Iconic Tab 8 W and Iconia One 8 will launch in Europe in October and both will be priced at €149. No word on North American launches just yet, but the Pan American pricing shows a direct currency symbol switch out. The 10-inch Iconia Tab 10 will be priced at $199 when it launches later this month while the two 8-inch tablets will launch in November for $149.
