Famous notebook manufacturer, Taiwanese company Acer has just announced the new Windows 8 tablets that the company is going to introduce once the operating system is launched. The two small wonders are using high-quality FullHD screens and are called W510 and W700.
The W510 is a 10.1” tablet
using an IPS touchscreen. The innovative part is that Acer is finally following ASUS
’ example and chose to ship a keyboard dock with the W510.
The dock will also provide a longer battery life, as the whole system is rated at 18 hours on a single charge.
This leads us to believe that the W510 is powered by Intel’s Medfield CPU or something stronger, like Cedar Trail.
The dock can also be arranged in a mode called “Presentation Mode” and this is a new thing that the company claims will make the tablet more useful.
The new toy from Acer will be priced anywhere between $400 and $800.
That’s around €320 to about €650 for the European mobile enthusiasts.
The W700 comes with a larger 11.6” touchscreen that is also sporting the FullHD resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels.
The W700 also arrives with a default accessory, but it’s not a keyboard dock like the W510 has, but rather a “tilting cradle.”
We don’t exactly understand what other use that “tilt cradle” has, besides allowing the device to sit somewhat upright.
We’re hoping it will also provide extra connectivity ports and, considering how thick is, maybe Acer could integrate a small 2000 mAh battery in there.
The rated battery life is 8 hours and Acer is planning to charge us anywhere between $800 and $1000.
That’s about €650 to around €800 for the Intel-powered tablet.
