Acer Reveals Iconia W700P, W510P Windows 8 Pro Tablets

Following the announcement of their Iconia A110 tablet, Acer has unveiled two new Windows 8 Pro tablets: the Iconia W700P and W510P.

The Iconia W700P boasts an Ivy Bridge Intel Core processor, a 11.6-inch 1,920 x 1,080 IPS display accompanied by 10-point touch, three USB 3.0 ports and Dolby Home Theater. A sound tunnel is also included that is capable of amplifying sounds naturally without utilizing any extra speakers.

A stylus will be offered with the tablet, which Acer claims can last up to 80 days in Deep Sleep mode. A webcam, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi and connecting to the web in 2.5 seconds-capability (via Acer's InviLink Nplify WiFi) rounds off the notable features.

Elsewhere, the W510P delivers the majority of the W700P's components. However, the tablet can be used as a notebook PC upon being attached to its docking keyboard. Furthermore, 10-inch IPS display device promises up to 18 hours battery life.

Both tablets have yet to be dated or priced, but expect a launch soon after Microsoft’s Windows 8 event next week.

    Acer has finally excited me about a Windows 8 Tablet! I was holding out for the mention of a W700 that would include a dockable keyboard. My girlfriend has the Samsung Series 7 Slate with SB and loves it, but not having an attachable keyboard makes it difficult to use on the couch etc. This would be perfect! Let's hope for a price ~$1k to boot.

    I wonder if the W510P's keyboard is compatible with the W700. I would like a bigger screen and don't mind sacrificing portability a bit.
