Tablets in general, remain to be a industry which is finding difficulty identifying itself. Which is partly the result of smartphones encroaching on tablet territory, due to the general trend of smartphones increasing in size and creating the newly formed phablet market that we now see today. One area in which tablets can identify themselves though, is in the gaming sector. The increase in screen size with additional features that are designed specifically for gamers, can offer tablets an approach and selling point that you might not find with smartphones. This is exactly what Acer are hoping to achieve with their Predator 8 tablet. A tablet which was officially unveiled back in September and one which comes targeting the gaming market. For those who have been following the Predator 8 news and waiting for the opportunity to get hold of one, then it looks like that opportunity took a step closer today. This is thanks to Acer finally opening up pre-orders on their site. In terms of the price, the Acer Predator 8 currently is listed with a pre-order price of $299.99.
In terms of the specs, the Acer Predator 8 comes equipped with an 8-inch display, which makes use of a 1920 x 1200 resolution. Inside, the Predator 8 comes loaded with 2GB RAM and powered by an Intel Atom (Z8700) Quad-core processor (clocking at 1.6 GHz). In terms of storage, we are looking at 32GB internal storage as standard and there is the option to expand, thanks to the inclusion of a microSD card slot (up to 128GB). Not forgetting that the Acer Predator 8 comes with a 4,550 mAh battery, while the tablet comes running on Android 5.1 (Lollipop) out of the box.
Of course, they are just the normal specs and one of the main features of the Predator 8 for gamers is the additional features which are included. Like for instance, the four speakers with virtual surround sound, as well as TacSense technology which is designed to offer a more tactile level of interaction when game playing.
