Acer's Iconia W4 is one of the main new products for this year. It's a Windows 8.1 tablet with a screen size of, you've guess it, 8.1in. It will come with Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 pre-installed, and Intel Atom processor and up to 10 hours of battery life. The firm said it will retail from 299 and be available at the end of January.
If you're interested in a reasonably priced smartphone then the Acer Liquid Z5 will arrive mid-January with a price tag of 169. The 8.8mm smartphone comes with a 5in screen, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, a 5Mp camera and a 1.3GHz dual-core processor.
Moving on, the Iconia A1 and Iconia B1 have been refreshed for 2014. The A1-830 offers a 7.9in IPS screen, Intel Atom processor, Android 4.2 and will cost the same price as the Liquid Z5. The new Iconia B1-720 has a slimmer design, texture and will be even cheaper at 129. It has a 7in 10-point display, microSD card slot and will come in in a 3G option.
Other products from Acer at CES 2014 include the touchscreen Chromebook , updated V5 touch laptop with an optical drive and Aspire S3 Ultrabook.
