Acer Iconia Smart: Giant Display, Giant Smartphone?

With the Iconia A500 Acer has gone really some time ago in the Tablet sector, now that is something to maue Smartphone offerings with the Iconia smart get a high-end model. The device with the oversized 4.8 inch display has a chance on the highly competitive market?

The Taiwanese by Acer, which are known more for notebooks & PCs want to mix with apparently more and more on the mobile phone market. In may, the Tablet Iconia A500 was released (we reported), and soon will be with the “Iconia smart” released a new smartphone flagship. On the website it is advertised as “100% Smartphone, 100% tablet”, as it is to link the “format of a Smartphone” with “Capabilities of a tablet”. What do you mean exactly with these skills, probably only Acer know I best just give you an overview, has to offer to the Iconia.

Display

With 4.8-inch display size it trumps loose the top seller (4.3 inch) Samsung Galaxy S2. This, pixel resolves to the 16 million colors touchscreen with unusual 1024 × 480. This is a 2.13: 1 aspect ratio, almost approaching widescreen (2.35: 1), the typical movie format. For comparison, the Galaxy display has with 800 × 480 pixels an aspect ratio of 1.66: 1, the iPhone 4 at 960 × 640 a 1.5: 1-ratio. The advantage of a wider and larger screen with high resolution are clear: in addition to the widescreen Filmkuck experience the surfing and games playing by the extra space will likely bring fun.

Hard and fast

The Iconia smart measures 141.7 x 64.5 x 13.3 mm, making it even longer than the already quite a large Galaxy S2 (124 x 66 x 8.5 mm). While it weighs proud 185 grams, the Samsung brings only 116 grams on the scale for comparison. Pocket fitness is quite questionable, if you’re not a fan of baggy-pants. For the high weight of the metallic battery cover is responsible, a pleasant change from flimsy plastic.

The French by Our site certify 1500 mAh battery was the an average endurance, 3G-Surfen in their first test without electricity for four and a half hours possible. Hardware comes a 1 GHz single core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and a 512-MB memory to use. Not high end, taking the Galaxy with 1 GB RAM and 1.2 GHz dual-core processor to the scale. After all, there are eight gigabytes of internal memory, so it moves above example, the HTC can provide sensation, the only 1 GB, but must be behind the market leaders Apple (iPhone 4:16 GB) and Samsung (Galaxy S2: 32 GB) far back do. However Our site writes that the Iconia despite humble facilities delivers a great performance, the operation is fluid and responsive interface. The same reports the Italian Android blog Our site, also about a product pre-release, that there has been tested. The latest version of Google Android, gingerbread 2.3 use comes as the operating system. The well-known Android navigation buttons are placed below the display home, search, back, and menu.

Sound, camera and connectivity

The camera resolution need to hide everything else with 8 MP with the main LED flash camera and 2 MP front camera, the iPhone 4 example provides the sensation of 8, or 0.3 MP only 5 or 0.3, MP. Otherwise, the Iconia offers the connection standards UMTS with HSDPA, Bluetooth 2.1, n Wi-Fi and A-GPS.Technology-getauften with the “Our site” the Iconia has also an interface for the data transfer to or from other Acer devices on board. Ultimately are still “Dolby mobile” speakers at the start for the multi media enjoyment, via HDMI output, TV can be connected in addition.

Especially for film and mobile game fans, where a Tablet is too large, an eye on the Iconia should take quite smart, even if the unusual format and the large dimensions are not for everyone. It will be interesting to see if the tests of the final models can confirm the positive reports about the pre-release versions. On my request, Acer, wrote that the unit of the end of August or Will appear beginning September this year with us in Germany at a price of €499.
