Acer provides details on Iconia W510, includes price and launch date

Acer outs details on the upcoming Acer Iconia W510 Windows 8 tablet

The market is about to see a flood of Windows 8 tablets in both the ARM and x86 variety. For the most part, it seems like OEMs are opting for the x86 version, using the Intel Atom and Intel Ivy Bridge ULV processors to power these laptop-hybrid devices. Acer has already announced details on the Iconica W700, an Ivy Bridge Windows 8 tablet.


They have now given us a glimpse of what to expect for the W510, a lower-end version of the Iconia W700. The W510 will release shortly after the W700, coming out on November 9. It will also pack a cheaper price tag, only setting customers back $500 for a 10.1-inch IPS, 1366x768 Windows 8 tablet.

Instead of utilizing an Intel Ivy Bridge chip, the W510 will take advantage of Intel's recently released Atom Z2760 processor, which has been designed specifically for tablets. It will also come with 2GB of RAM, which seems a bit low. The base model will come with 32GB of SSD space, with an upgraded verson featuring 64GB.
