Acer unveiled the Iconia Tab 10 (A3-A50) – a tablet with a 10” quantum dot display. This tech is used by Sony in its flagship phones (but not tablets, it seems), its Triluminos TVs too. It’s what Samsung calls QLED and what Philips uses it its Color IQ TVs.
What’s the big deal? Quantum dots sit between LCD and OLED displays. Compared to LCDs, they are brighter, have higher contrast, offer more colors and use less energy. In TVs, a quantum dot display is often paired with HDR capability, but Acer is mum on the subject.
Anyway, the Iconia Tab 10 is awesome at the other half of “audio-visual” – with four speakers and a patented sub-woofer, the tablet promises rich, immersive audio (despite that it’s only 9mm thick). DTS-HD Premium ensures the audio quality.
The tablet can go on rocking for up to 8 hours, though it won’t go anywhere fast with its MediaTek chipset with a quad-core CPU. At least you get fast Wi-Fi 802.11ac for streaming.
Price and availability were not revealed, perhaps we’ll get to hear more about that during the Taipei Computex event (scheduled for Thursday, May 30).
