[Acer says its ICONIA SMART offers the capabilities of a tablet in a smartphone format.]

Taipei, Taiwan -- Acer ICONIA SMART perfectly combines the capabilities of a tablet in a smartphone format: a huge 4.8” widescreen with a 21:9 aspect ratio and a super cool chassis. Its revolutionary design, characterized by a stretched out, thin and slightly curved shape, makes it a fascinating device that will not go unnoticed. Surely enough, the ICONIA SMART captured both the Best Choice and Design & Innovation awards at Computex Taipei, the most influential global IT event held in Asia.

Each year, the jury of the Best Choice awards selects Taiwan's best ICT products in the overseas market. While the Design & Innovation awards, organized in cooperation with world-leading industrial design institution iF Design, honor products that stand out through excellent design. Their evaluation criteria include degree of innovation, design quality, choice of materials, environmental friendliness, functionality and brand value, among others.

Acer ICONIA SMART’s full metal body, enriched by subtle wavy patterns, conveys a sense of timeless elegance. What’s more, it offers a perfect fit in your hand thanks to its smoothly curved back and minimal width (64mm). This truly innovative device is perfect for fashion addicts or tech savvy people looking for the latest and cutting edge technology available ensuring superior browsing and excellent multimedia entertainment.

IDEAL FOR BROWSING There is no limit in assessing any websites. With the same user experience as using a traditional PC, websites don’t need to be resized and adjusted thanks to its exceptional resolution of 1024 x 480. And a very large 4.8" screen means there is no need to zoom in on web pages, or to scroll left and right. The only thing you need to do is scroll up and down, just like on your PC.

Fast and fully featured, the Android browser offers multi-touch, Java script optimization, and Adobe Flash Player 10.1 support, and ultra-fast high-speed connectivity via HSDPA @ 14.4 and WiFi N for data connection.

GREAT FOR MOVIES On the 21:9 screen you can watch movies in their original format, for an engrossing cinema-like experience. What’s more the LED backlit display uses the same technology as TV showing super bright and vivid images; to top it off, Dolby Mobile technology delivers vibrant, immersive sound. Not enough for you yet? Thanks to the built-in HDMI out connection, you can connect it to your TV to view your content on an even bigger screen!

GREAT FOR GAMES Inside Acer ICONIA SMART beats the powerful 1GHz Snapdragon processor, which, in addition to the large screen, turns this smartphone into a perfect game console. Together with 6-axis motion sensing (Gyroscope + accelerometer), this smartphone will exceed any gaming expectation.

The ICONIA SMART offers the latest, best version of Android yet. The Gingerbread recipe is sweetened with an enhanced Acer user interface that improves usability by providing clever solutions to everyday situations while sticking to the roots of the Android platform. Furthermore, ICONIA SMART offers one-touch access to its connectivity center, sensible app organization, an 8MP camera and LED flash, and a 2MP front camera for high quality IP video calling.

100% Smartphone, 100% Tablet. ICONIA SMART – a revolutionary experience for people who want it all!

ICONIA SMART will be showcased at Acer’s booth at Computex Taipei 2011, which runs from May 31-June 4. Acer's booth is located in the Nankang exhibition hall, upper floor, #L1017.
