Acer Iconia Smart

 

Acer's 21:9 Iconia Smart is an Android oddball. But we kinda like it.

We did try to get Gameloft’s N.O.V.A. and Spider-Man running on the phone to see how its screen deals with standard games, but unfortunately we couldn’t get the game assets to download using the built-in Wi-Fi. Android apps are designed to scale fairly...

Acer Iconia Smart

 

Acer announced the Iconia Smart in February 2011, describing the device as '100 percent tablet, 100 percent smartphone'.

Although confusing, this makes more sense when looking at its screen, which measures in at a mammoth 4.8-inches. It also comes boasting an eye-popping 1024 x 480 resolution, with an 21:9 cinema-style aspect ration.
