Acer Iconia Smart: a phone AND a tablet

Acer has just launched the gorgeous new Acer Iconia Smart, describing the 4.8-inch device as a smartphone “with the soul of a tablet”.

The Acer Iconia Smart’s screen has an ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio and dominates the entire front of the sleek device. It boasts multi-touch capabilities, and its 1024 x 480 resolution means it can show web pages at full width – there’s no need to resize them. Acer likens the web browsing experience to that of using a traditional PC: you can just scroll up and down to read pages.

The Android web browser also supports Java script and Adobe Flash Player 10.1, plus multiple page browsing.

The all-metal body also features four buttons on the front (Home, Search, Back and Menu), and flipping it over reveals an 8MP camera with LED flash.

Inside you’ll find Android, Wi-Fi N, HSDPA with 14.4Mbps speed and Bluetooth 3.0. There’s support for too, which Acer says allows you to take control of all the multimedia content in your home wirelessly.

We’ll bring you more on the Acer Iconia Smart when we’ve had a chance to get our hands on it.
