Acer Live Blog 2014 – London to Edinburgh

Acer Live Blog 2014


And so it begins, arrived in Edinburgh, briefings complete and devices in hand!

The Caledonian Sleeper pulled into Edinburgh at 7:00am this morning, where we left the warmth of our berth’s and stepped out into the cold Scottish air. From here we had a short 10 minute walk to our ‘base’ at the G&V Hotel just off the Royal Mile. After we’d all had a couple of bacon rolls it was time for a short briefing where we were given our challenges! See Below.

Not only will we be completing the below challenges throughout Saturday but we’ll be bringing you reviews of the Aspire Switch 10 laptop/tablet hybrid, Liquid Jade Smartphone and the Liquid Leap Smartwatch.
