Acer is fishing in a little pond with its Iconia W510 tablet, a 10.1-inch tablet with a detachable keyboard, which sounds a little bit like the Acer version of ASUS’s Transformer series. One small but subtle difference marks the Acer Iconia W510: the operating system is Windows 8!
As expected, Acer opened the Computex-dance with the Windows 8 tablets we can expect to see released this year. The 10.1-inch tablet has an IPS display and a detachable keyboard. The latter ensures that the battery life is doubled, and thus comes to a total of 18 hours. We don’t know all the specs or the exact availability, but the Verge mentioned a price of about $799 for the device. We hope to see more information about the device during the week of Computex.
