Acer Predator 8 Gaming Tablet can display games on a TV by using a SlimPort adapter
Acer’s 8 inch Android tablet designed for gaming is scheduled to go on sale in November for $299. This week the Acer Predator 8 tablet made a pit stop at the FCC on its way to store shelves.
The FCC listing doesn’t provide a lot of new details about the tablet, but it does help confirm that the Predator 8 should be coming to the US this fall.
Acer’s first Android tablet designed for gaming features an Intel Atom x7-8700 processor, an 8 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel display, and four front-facing speakers. Acer says the tablet also offers tactile feedback that helps the touchscreen feel like a gamepad when you’re playing games.
The Predator 8 will be available with up to 64GB of storage and the tablet features a microSD card slot for removable storage. It also has 802.11n 2×2 MIMO WiFi, a 5MP rear camera, and a 2MP front-facing camera.
While there’s not a dedicated HDMI port, you can still display games on a TV by using a SlimPort adapter to attach an HDMI cable to the tablet’s microUSB port.
