Acer reveals new Windows 10 devices

Last week Microsoft paved the way for Windows 10 with a new tablet, a laptop and a pair of smartphones. Acer followed suit at an event in Taiwan on Monday, revealing a new convertible laptop, an all-in-one PC and its first Windows 10 handset.

The Liquid Jade Primo smartphone actually made its debut earlier this year, but Acer took the opportunity to promote the device again. It features a 5.5-inch display and Windows 10 software, including Continuum. However, there’s still no word on when the new phone will actually be available.

The biggest news of the event is likely the Aspire R 14, a hybrid laptop-tablet with a 360-degree hinge. It packs a 6th-gen Intel processor, up to 8GB of RAM and solid state drive storage. It’s set to launch in the U.S. later this month starting at $699.

Finally, Acer revealed the Aspire Z3-700, an all-in-one PC with a 5 hour battery. The device features a hefty 17.3-inch 1080p display with a built-in kickstand, allowing it to function as a giant tablet or a regular desktop computer. It also offers 8GB of RAM, a choice of SDD or HDD storage, and stylus support. The computer is set to launch in Europe, the Middle East and Africa before the end of the year for €599, though the specifics of its U.S. release are still up in the air.
