The Acer Iconia W700 is a hefty 11.6-inch tablet that runs the Windows 8 operating system. It can be paired with Acer's own wireless Bluetooth keyboard and a cradle dock, turning this portable tablet into a full-fledged mobile office.
Expected to be available on 26 October, the Iconia W700 comes in three versions. Two of the models both have 64GB of storage, but the US$750 version runs on an Intel Core i3 Ivy Bridge processor, while the US$850 is equipped with an i5 CPU under its hood. The 128GB model, which houses an i3 processor, is estimated to cost between US$950 to US$1000. Local pricing and release details are expected shortly.
All three versions of the Acer Iconia W700 sport an 11.6-inch, 10-point touch screen. The IPS 1080p Full HD display has a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, and when I handled the device, text and pictures were rendered crisp and bright. On the left side, it has a micro-HDMI output and a USB port.
