More Windows 8 tablet action: Acer reveals Iconia W700 and W510

More Windows 8 tablet action: Acer reveals Iconia W700 and W510I listed Windows 8 tablets in our recent Five things to look forward to in 2012 feature, and the game is well and truly on – thanks to Computex 2012 in Taipei.

Earlier today I wrote about Asus’ first Windows 8 tablets, and now it’s Acer’s turn, with the Iconia W700 and W510.

The Acer Iconia W510, firstly, is quite a sexy little beast, with a 10.1in IPS display and optional keyboard dock extending battery life to a total of 18 hours. Not too shabby.

Other Acer Iconia W510 specs include a SIM slot, together with microSD, micro-USB and HDMI, an 8MP rear camera, and speakers on either side. The keyboard dock offers a full-size USB 2.0 port. Engadget reports that both tablet and keyboard are thin and light. Lovely.

As for the Acer Iconia W700, it has an 11.6in display (1920 x 1080), and a cradle thingy that positions the tablet at 20 or 70 degrees. There’s also a trio of USB 3.0 ports, and enhanced audio via Dolby Home Theater.

No keyboard for the Acer Iconia W700, however, so you’ll have to fire up the Bluetooth if you fancy QWERTY typing.

Rather interesting tablets for sure, but we’ll wait for Acer Iconia W510 and W700 prices to be announced before getting our wallets out.
