Acer can be justifiably proud of ICONIA’s win, as the competition for this fan-favorite title is as fierce as it is fun. Each product nominated had to be one that the writers and readers of prominent Internet tech news and blogger sites throughout 2010 considered the most innovative, user-friendly and able to stand the test of time. Scores of original nominees were submitted before being whittled down, by popular vote, first to a preliminary 25 and then to the final 10 “left standing” just prior to the 2011Consumer Electronic Show, where the ultimate winner was selected today after a hilarious—and triumphant—live presentation by ICONIA’s advocates and promotional team.
Offering what Acer calls the “Absolute Touch Experience,” ICONIA makes it easy for consumers to discover new and immersive ways to view and interact with their favorite videos, photos, websites and movies. Compatible with Windows© 7 software and offering a unique visual experience, the ICONIA allows multimedia, entertainment, communication and even web pages to flow seamlessly across its 14-inch dual screens. A virtual keyboard is as close as the user’s fingertips and features a full-sized QWERTY layout, while something Acer calls the “Gesture Editor” enables users to create customized gestures that will instantly open applications or favorite websites with—literally—a wave of their hand.
