Busy Acer adds new Android Iconia tablets to roster

Alongside its impressive looking Liquid S2 phablet, Acer has also unveiled the Iconia A3, a 10.1in "couch mate" slate (above), as well as two smaller additions to its tablet line.

The company tipped the Android 4.2-based gadget as an entertainment device, complete with Dolby Digital Plus and ergonomic placement of speakers on both sides for better sound, as well as wide viewing angles.

There's a built-in micro HDMI port so the Iconia A3 can be connected to external displays, while Bluetooth 4.0 support allows for connections to printers and headsets.

The Iconia A3 features a 1,280-by-800 display and runs a 1.2GHz ARM Cortex A7 processor. There's a 5-megapixel rear camera that can take photos and capture video simultaneously.

The A3 comes in 16GB and 32GB versions. A Wi-Fi model will be available for around £210 in early October, while 3G is expected in November for about £250.

For something a little smaller, Acer also tipped a 7.9in A1 tablet and 7in B1, both of which are now available.

Acer now has a bevy of new products to show of at IFA 2013 in Berlin, and we'll be jetting out today to see all of these and much more, so make sure you check out our IFA live coverage page.
