Acer Windows 8 Iconia Tablets Revealed
Acer has two Windows 8 tablets coming up later this year alongside the official Windows 8 launch. But we won’t have to wait that long to take a look at them because the company has them on display at the Computex 2012 show being held in Taipei right now. The two tablet are named Iconia W700 and Iconia W510.
The Iconia W700 will be featuring a rather large 11.6” screen with full HD resolution. It will support up to 10 simultaneous touch points, which means you can use all 10 fingers if the situation so demands. The battery is apparently going to last through 8 hours of usage and it will have 3 USB 3.0 ports. There’s even a micro HDMI port for connecting the device to HD displays and projectors. There’s also going to Dolby Home Theatre for better audio quality. There will be a 5MP primary camera and a secondary camera of unspecified resolution for front-facing video-conferencing.
The Iconia W510 is going to be closer to the standard tablet size at 10.1” and will feature a detachable chiclet keyboard dock. This dock would be doubling up as an extended battery, extending the tablet’s running hours up to 18 hours on top of the physical keyboard. It would also support SIM cards for mobile connectivity. There will be a microSD slot for adding more storage, micro-USB and also a microHDMI. The keyboard dock will have a USB 2.0 port with a propietary port for docking.
There are not pricing details available at the moment but it is certain that the tablets are going to released later as Microsoft releases Windows 8 officially.
