It is not the first time we’ve talked about the Windows 8 running Acer Iconia tablet. Previously we covered an article about the device’s pricing that may not be to the customer’s benefit. The device is said to come with a $1,490 price tag and with a Bluetooth keyboard the price goes all the way up to $1,570.


Acer officially introduced today the Iconia W700 tablet. It packs an impressive 11.6-inch full HD 1920×1080 pixels touchscreen display that should make everything perfectly clear. The device comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of SSD storage. It comes in configurations powered either by the Intel Core i3 or the faster or Core i5 Ivy Bridge CPU. On the connectivity side we find Wi-Fi and ports for USB 3.0 and micro HDMI. The device’s screen offers Gorilla Glass protection in an aluminium casing that looks and feels great.

The 11.6-inch screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio, so HD videos and movies will appear full screen and make for a very enjoying experience. However note that the icons and text may appear too small in Windows 8 desktop mode and in certain apps. The tablet also comes with a cradle that can be used as a docking station. For the time being Acer hasn’t given any official pricing info regarding it’s latest Windows 8 models. We’ll keep you informed if anything turns out.


Edit: We now have the complete pricing details for the Iconia W700. It looks like the Core i3 model will set you back $799.99, going up to $999.99 for the 128GB Core i5 version. For $1,049.99 you may get Windows 8 Pro and an extended warranty..
