Merge from Acer Tablet[edit]

There is a bit of confusion between the two articles. The Acer Iconia article has some content referring to the Acer Iconia Tab.

Acer considers both devices to be tablets (http://www.acer.com.au/ac/en/AU/content/group/tablets), so this suggests the articles should be merged, in one direction or another. I believe that a 'Tab' section of the Acer Iconia page would be more logical. Thoughts?

Maybe in the interim, a picture should be added to the Acer Iconia page to help disambiguate the pages on first-sight?

I think that, despite having similar names, these devices are very different. On the one hand, you have a two-screen laptop running Windows (Iconia); on the other hand, you have a serie of tablets running mostly Android (Iconia tab). It's only confusing because Acer has chosen to name them similarly. Zorun (talk) 12:24, 4 December 2011 (UTC)


I'd have to agree with Zorun. Despite similar form factors and names they're nothing alike. One is x86 based running Windows, the other is ARM based running Android. Acer differentiates the two by calling them Iconia Tab A(for Android) and Iconia Tab W(for Windows). I put forward adding that to the titles of the pages. Tului (talk) 01:32, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
