Acer Iconia Talk S
The brand new Acer Iconia Talk S is a new 7″ 4G LTE tablet targeting business professionals.

The anti-slip finish enables users to hold onto the large device with one hand and the 13 MP camera allows for great, high-resolution pictures. The Iconia Talk S comes with Acer’s own pre-installed suite of software including the Z Snap, EZ WakeUp, and EZ Utilitiess as well as Microsoft’s Office Suite.
The Acer Iconia Talk S will be available in September and cost roughly $190.
