Following in the footsteps of the Iconia W700 is the Acer Iconia W510 tablet whose price details and release date information have been officially divulged. Classified under the convertible category, this slate can perform in 3 different modes, each created for specific purposes.
Where the design is concerned, the company has crafted the device with a sleek form factor which features curved edges. The tablet alone measures 0.35 inches in thickness and it weighs not more than 1.27 pounds. And with the keyboard dock, the overall depth is increased to 0.84 inches, while it still manages to maintain a lightweight profile of approximately 2.63 pounds. Being powered by the Windows 8 platform, Acer has incorporated the latest offering from the Intel Clover Trail lineup.
To enter productive mode, users simple have to latch on the keyboard dock for a full notebook experience that’s said to be ideal for creating and editing documents. By rotating the accessory 295 degrees back to convert it into a stand, the Acer Iconia W510 can then be positioned in an upright angle which is considered as the presentation mode. And last on the list is a conventional mode that involves using the device sans any add-ons. The battery life here is slated as 9 hours, while the keyboard dock provides an extended activity time of up to 18 hours on a single charge.
Based on the details of the Acer Iconia W510, the tablet will be available in several configurations. The W510-1422 is tagged at $749.99 which includes a 64GB SSD as well as the keyboard dock, and the W510-1674 will retail for $499.99, housing a 32GB SSD. Both slates have their release date pinned down for November 7 in the US and Canada.
