They’ve posted a 40-minute recording of one of the segments.
They did a very good job demonstrating it.
Even though it was the same retail price someone would get in a store, they threw in a free case and a voucher for other software:
Emphasizing the difference between those seven-inch screens:
Hyping the Google Play Store:
The first of several impressive voice recognition demos, asking when Summer begins and the tablet speaks the reply:
Emphasizing the tablet has a rear camera:
Second voice recognition demo, asking for trip navigation:
Third demo, having the tablet set an alarm:
Pushing hard that it has expandable memory via microSD card:
Fourth voice demo, posting a tablet-taken photo to Facebook and speaking the post text:
And BAM! done, posted:
Final and most impressive voice demo, dictating an email — look at all the words:
One of three minor irritations:
Showing video from the tablet wirelessly playing on a TV. They didn’t actually mention how that was done and what the buyer would need in terms of a TV being able to do that.
Another minor bit of flim-flam was showing screensnaps of apps and paging through them as if it was multitask switching.
Third irritation was saying Bluetooth will work with a keyboard. Unless Acer has since pushed out an update, that was not true.
I don’t think many people will be disappointed with their purchase, however.
I’m still waiting for this to get in stores.
By the way, they sold over ten thousand, I think.
