New Hybrid Mobile Device Coming From Acer
Iconia Tab 7 is the company's latest budget device...

Acer has announced today that it'll be launching a brand new phone/tablet hybrid in North America next month. The Iconia Tab 7 will feature a 1,280 x 800 resolution screen and a quad-core MediaTek processor, and while it looks just like a traditional tablet, it'll also be able to function as a traditional cell phone (although we're not sure too many folks have pockets big enough for a 7" smartphone).

Strictly a budget device, the Iconia Tab 7 is very much lacking in the specs department, with a lack of 4G connectivity among other cost-cutting measures. However, given the fact that it'll cost in or around the $200/€149 mark when it launche, it's really tricky to complain. Acer has also confirmed that the device will feature a special coating that'll help reduce messy fingerprints, so long a feature of touch-screen devices.

While it's not a high end device, we definitely see plenty of potential for it as a backup for your regular phone, and the inclusion of Android KitKat 4.4 is definitely a good thing. We'll be very interested to see how this fare when it launches in the coming months.
