Acer Iconia Smart S300 is introduced as 100% smartphone and 100% tablet. It has an ultra-wide 4.8”, 1024 x 480 pixels display, that is around half an inch wider than the Samsung Galaxy S2. It makes sense when you’re uncomfortable zooming in just to look closer to a website’s content then zoom out when you need to look at it as a whole again. However, with such lavish screen, then you can really say that it’s somewhat a tablet, bringing you a real PC-like web browsing.
With the premise of having a wider screen that is a 21:9 aspect ratio, then it gets even better having the 6-axis motion sensor, which gives you a great gaming console and a movie theater experience at the same time. Not to mention it has LED technology on it that emits exceptionally bright display and a Dolby audio mobile sound that matches the visual quality on loudspeaker or even just on your headset.
Now down to the core, Iconia Smart has the Android 2.3 “Gingerbread” as its mobile OS and the 1GHz Snapdragon processor with an 8GB internal memory that can still have an additional memory of up to 32GB via its microSD card slot. It has 3G, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi that can also turn your mobile handset into an instant Wi-Fi hotspot.
For photo-loving people, an 8MP camera is in place as your perfect playmate, which comes with a LED flashlight. Video calling is never left out because it has a 2MP front-facing camera as well.
