Acer showing off a couple of new tablets

Acer set the beginning of the Computex expo, which is being held in Taiwan this week, with a few devices running Windows 8. Aside from an interesting ultrabook, called the Aspire S7, the company announced a couple of tablets – the W510 and W700, both of which work with Microsoft’s new platform and can be used along with an additional keyboard.

We’ll start of with the Acer W510 – the “little brother”, which actually has a 10.1″ IPS display and will probably rely on a Intel Clovertrail processor. Sadly, these are the only deatils we currently know about the technical specifications, pricing or even release date, but with the launch of Windows 8 getting closer, we should learn these details quite soon. What we currently know, though, is that the device can be used with a keyboard-dock, which also features an additional battery prolonging its battery life to up to 18 hours. The keyboard could also be turned around to 295° in order to be used as a stand.

The other one – Acer W700, of course, is more powerful and interesting and – with its 11,6″ Full HD display, actually bigger. The device probably features an Intel Ivy Bridge ULV processor, with which its battery should last about 8 hours, but than again it also comes with a special dock, which not only has an additional battery, but also adds 3 USB 3.0 ports and can be used by the user to place their device in a number of different positions. The tablet itself, which the company claims can be used as a normal computer, features not only the standart HDMI and USB (3.0 to be exact) ports, but even a Thunderbolt one. According to the current information, prices are going to start from $799 and will reach $999. B. A.
