Acer unveils Iconia W700P and W510P Windows 8 Pro tablets

Acer has announced two new Windows 8 Pro tablets ahead of Microsoft’s grand Windows 8 event next week, which will also see the official debut of Windows 8 Pro Surface tablets.

The Iconia W700P runs on an Ivy Bridge Intel Core processor, has an 11.6in 1,920 x 1,080 IPS display with 10-point touch, Dolby Home Theater and a nifty little cradle that provides three USB 3.0 ports and a sound tunnel that can amplify sound naturally without using any extra speakers.

The W510P, in comparison, doesn’t have a dock but a docking keyboard that turns it into a potentially more interesting ultra-portable laptop that has a 10in IPS display and promises up to 18 hours battery life, all in a Windows 8 Pro environment.

Both the W510P and the W700P appear to share a number of features but Acer has yet to give more details regarding pricing and availability but one can expect all to be revealed as from next week.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
