Perfect for business professionals, frequent travelers and cost-conscious consumers, the Acer Iconia Talk S is a 4G LTE tablet and phone in one. Its dual-SIM design supports two accounts (phone numbers) and offers extremely accurate and clear voice calls as well as fast text communication.

Courtesy of a quad-core processor, the new Iconia Talk S is powerful and responsive. It also features Android 6.0 Marshmallow, delivering a superb user experience with tight security. Intelligent power management provides ample battery life of up to 9 hours[2] for enjoying videos, gaming and web browsing all day.

Acer Iconia Talk S boasts an impressive 1280 x 720 HD display and an anti-slip finish that enables a firmer, more secure grip to help avoid accidental drops. The 13MP camera captures crystal clear images in vivid detail for uncompromised sharing of precious moments with friends and family. 

Fully integrated with Acer’s Iconia Suite apps, which include EZ Snap, EZ Wake up and EZ Utilities, the Iconia Talk S offers easy and intuitive access to smart functions, while the pre-installed Microsoft Office Suite and official Google Mobile Services enable the device to be leveraged for both business and pleasure.
