Acer has revealed the price and release date for the Iconia W510, one of many upcoming dockable tablets that are going to run Windows 8.
There will be four versions, each with different features. Still, these will have much in common. Every version will have a 1.5GHz dual-core Intel Atom Z2760 Clover Trail processor, 2 GB of RAM, and a microSD card reader. They will each have a 2MP front-facing camera, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, and HDMI video-out port.
All will sport a 10.1-inch touchscreen with a 1366 x 760 pixel resolution. This will have Gorilla Glass 2 to protect it from scratches.
Some versions of the Iconia W510 will come with a keyboard dock, and for others this will be optional. This will come with a full-size USB 2.0 port and a built-in battery capable of doubling the tablet’s own 9-hour battery life. It will sell for $150 when purchased alone.
The W510-1674 will cost $500, and is going to include a 32 GB solid-state hard drive. The W510-1666 will have a 64GB SSD and sell for $600.
The W510-1422 is going to have a 64GB SSD and it will come with the keyboard dock for $750. These three are going to come with Windows 8, while the top-of-the-line W510P is going to have Windows 8 Pro. It will also have a 64GB SSD and the keyboard dock, and will sell for $800.
All the versions of this 1.3-pound, 0.3-inch-thick tablet are scheduled to launch on November 9 at retailers in the U.S. and Canada.
