Acer has debuted yet another one of those 7 inch tablets with phone calling features, one that somehow reminds me of a Samsung Galaxy Mega device, I don’t exactly know why. The newcomer is called Iconia Talk S and it also comes with LTE connectivity.


The product is a dual SIM tablet, that has Android 4.4 KitKat as the OS and it integrates a 7 inch 1280 x 720 pixel display, plus a 2 megapixel front facing camera, a 5 megapixel rear camera without flash, 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage, plus a microSD card slot. There’s a 3780 mAh battery inside is the slate is powered by a 64 bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset.

Acer Iconia Talk S is expected to debut in Taiwan soon, priced at around $250. There’s no info about a release date for other areas of the world, but that should also happen at some point. If you look at the facade of the Talk S you’ll also be reminded of the ASUS FonePad just a little bit. Notice what seem like dual front speakers, as well.

    I wish I could buy one of these tablets in the US. There seems to be a lot of them available in Asia.

  • Looks interesting. When it comes to North America, i hope it has bands1700/2100. I will compare it with the upcoming Asus Memo Pad 7 ME572CL which is also data capable and does include those bands. I will probably buy one of these tablets to make calls without a phone contract.

    This would be awesome, especially if it came over at about 165.00-178.00. I constantly wonder why the bigger companies don’t do a big device like this with phone-calling capabilities. As one other comment says, these are so common in Asia but not in North America. I often wonder if it has to do with the monopoly of the phone companies, lobbyist and cooked politicians. I just bought ZTE Zmax phablet off contract at a fair 200.00. I would give this in a second to my wife and grab the Acer at 7inches if it came over under 200.00. I bet they would sell boku numbers of these things if they could do it. Let’s hope they do!

    Many of us would buy a 7inch tablet with phone capabilities in place of a Samsung Note for hundred less, and completely off contract. I have often wondered why tablet makers don’t swoop into this unfilled gap and why they’ve left this money on the table seemingly uninterested. Acer is a company I’ve traditionally supported and it would be nice if they came into this success in North America. As a owner of an acer laptop and tablet I have found the volume of their devices on the low side. It would be nice if this device were not plagued with that problem if and when it comes. Pulling for Acer. Go make it happen guys.
