Acer Predator 8 : Slate for Avid Gamers and Movie Enthusiasts

And the curtains slid off revealing Acer’s newest pride, the Predator 8.  Avid gamers and movie enthusiasts will find enjoyment in this wonderful piece of a tablet rich in graphical-enhancing components.  North America will be the first to feel the slate that goes exclusive for two weeks on Newegg by November 6. After that, the whole world can rejoice on its world-wide availability.

Aside from the FHD screen and Intel HD Graphics GPU, Predator 8 also features its very own TacSense that provides tactile feedback on the screen during your game time.  To bring gaming or video watching experience into higher notch, the Taiwanese device maker installed a 4-speaker set.  For this, Acer also brings Predator MediaMaster app that helps users to bring out the best of the speakers.


Critics even noted that Predator 8 could even dethrone the reigning king of Android gaming tablets which is Nvidia Shield due to some fire hazard issues that the latter one is currently facing.


Despite these cool under-the-hood specs, one can remark how Acer downplayed their snappers.  Quite understandably, Acer audaciously pointed out the purpose of Predator 8.  So picture-loving folks, sorry for you but this slate is not the right one for you.
