  • 8 GB internal storage expandable to 32 GB
  • Dual SIM
  • It has 3G connectivity feature but no 4G LTE

Functions and Features:
The latest Acer’s S1 Phablet has a function which gives it an advantage over its competitors. With it, you can perform several tasks at the same time. For example, you can operate your phonebook, calculator or any other app simultaneously just like you would while working on a computer. The gadget also has a float caller application which prevents users from getting interrupted during a call while allowing you to send a message later on.

The introductory price for the S1 phablet is suggested to be 350 Euros. It will be shipped later this year to Belgium, France, Russia, Ukraine, Netherlands, UK, Germany, Italy and Spain. Although Acer is most renowned for making laptops, it has taken a step forward into the world of IT and telecommunication with the launch of this Phablet.
