Acer Iconia Smart

Acer Iconia Smart S300 4.8″ smartphone clears the FCC, gets a teardown

The Acer Iconia Smart has just cleared the FCC and is headed our way soon. Spotted at the FCC getting a little teardown we now get to see a few of the internals of this huge 4.8" phone-tablet hybrid from Acer. It was first announced back in February and we even have some hands-on video from MWC2011 of the device, it's a unique smartphone that is for sure. Back in May it was delayed and the last we heard it was slated for a September release. At least it's finally hitting the FCC, we can expect a release shortly I'm assuming.

Acer Iconia Smart Delayed Till July Amid Japan Earthquake Aftermath

Have you heard of the new Acer Android smartphone? Nay? It's called the Acer Iconia Smart, and it's basically a phantom. Last time we heard from it, we were at Mobile World Congress 2011 and our good man Chris Davies was on the case. At that time it appeared that the phone would indeed be released by May 2011 (that's what time it is now,) but newest news says that a delay is occurring because Acer needs parts from Japanese factories that just aren't in commission at the moment.

Acer Iconia Tab A100 Delay Due to 7-inch Incompatibility with Honeycomb Says the Manufacturer

Wait, say what? Apparently, according to DigiTimes speaking with some "sources familiar with the matter," Acer's Iconia A100 (the smaller cousin of our already-reviewed Iconia Tab A500), have noted that Acer is blaming incompatibility issues with Honeycomb on a 7-inch device for their delay in launch. As you know, the Acer Iconia Tab A100 was supposed to be launched back on May 14th along with the 101 (the 3G version) - that was nixed! Of course we're all waiting for this release because this set o' tablets is going to be bargain priced and the A500 isn't half bad, you know what I mean?
