If wearable tech doesn't float your boat then fear not, Acer will be at CES in Las Vegas bringing a range of more traditional devices. The firm will launch Windows and Android tablets plus laptops and a smartphone.

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.
