Last year at CES I saw a few all-in-one Android device including some from ViewSonic and this year Acer are introducing a 21.5 inch Android device (I can’t call it a PC can I?). The Acer DA223 All-in-one has a 21.5 inch 10-point capacitive touchscreen running Android Jelly Bean powered by an Snapdragon 600 processor running at 1.7GHz. What does make it interesting is that it has MHL input so it can be used as a display and touch screen for a Windows 8 PC, Acer say its full HD so it should be a 1080p display.
It has a battery so it can be moved around the home and is going to cost $699. No UK prices yet but I hope to find out soon.
