Acer's Iconia Tablets Get A Windows 8 Makeover
There was no shortage of Windows 8 at this year’s Computex, and Acer was one of the first to showcase the upcoming OS with the debut of its new Iconia W510 and Iconia W700 convertible tablets.
Both the 10.1-inch W510 and 11.6-inch W700 are powered by Intel, tout multi-touch capabilities and can be twisted and turned into a variety of viewing options. The W510 can be coupled with a detachable keyboard to be used as a traditional clamshell notebook, as a straight-up tablet or as a third form factor called "presentation mode" that involves bending the screen backward to prop up on the keyboard.
The W700 isn't inherently convertible, but it comes with a multipurpose cradle that allows for different viewing angles.
