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 Android / Intel Tablet Waiting in the Wings

Remember that one time when we had an awesome tablet by the name of Acer Iconia Tab A500 and we totally reviewed it FTW? That fancy bunch over at DigiTimes have done it again with their loose-lipped partners and have revealed the next step AFTER the A500, namely an Oak Trail device, and that means Intel! This tablet will supposedly run Android 3.0 (pointing toward the notion that Android 3.1 wont be rolling out to everyone as fast as predicted,) and that it'll be a 10-inch tablet retail released in July.

Acers Iconia Tab A100 misses May 14 launch, now delayed until 2H 2011

Earlier this month we were tipped that the Acer Iconia Tab A100 tablet would be launching on May 14. The tablet sounds pretty good to use and we have been looking forward to it. Sadly, the tablet has now been postponed with the 14th coming and going with no A100 launch. The table has been postponed and it will be later in 2011 before it comes to stores and you can buy it. The tablet now has a 2H 2011 expected launch date.
