Gaming tablet. Individuals are a couple of words I honestly did not be prepared to say side-by-side about anything apart from SHIELD Tablet, but alas, here i am. It appears as though Acer thought there must be some thing within this market, since it just formally announced its Predator 8 gaming tablet. Sounds mean.

As suggested by its name, it is really an eight-inch device, with a 1920×1200 display resolution. Additionally, it has four front-facing loudspeakers and virtual surround seem, which Acer describes as Predator Quadio. It’s operated by an Apple Atom x7 processor, and runs Android 5.1 as they are. In writing, it may sound just like a pretty solid device.

However the thing is it.

I am not likely to say it’s ugly, but…well, let us just the design is not for everybody. Also it still looks just like it did in April. Take a look:

Unlike SHIELD Tablet, Predator does not include its very own controller – rather, Acer built it with tactile feedback, similar to a conventional game controller ought to be…only on the touchscreen. So, essentially, some games will still feel just a little wonky if you are the kind who hates touch controls.

At just 12.35 ounces, the Predator 8 is fairly light, and also at just 8.7mm, it’s just as thin. The rear of the unit is brushed aluminum, therefore it may really feel very good to carry, too.

Based on the pr release, it’ll have “as much as 64GB of storage and expansion abilities using a sd card as high as 128GB,” however it only offers one cost ($299), so I am unsure how to get that. Hopefully 64GB may be the standard, because honestly that’s the right place to begin for any gaming unit.

Acer is boasting the Predator 8 has “among the best touch encounters available,” because of its smaller sized, more densely-arranged touch sensors. This supposedly offers better control and precision, as well as enables such things as graphite pencils for use like a stylus (though I do not imagine that’s advisable). Acer also features its own stylus – known as Accurate Stylus – which is readily available for Predator 8.



The Predator tablet will be available in North America for $299 beginning on November 6th, exclusively at Newegg for the first two weeks. After that, it will be available at “other retailers” nationwide.
