The Asus Eee Pad Transformer isn’t the only tablet with a removable keyboard hitting the streets this month. The Acer Iconia Tab W500 has a similar design, but instead of running Google Android the Iconia Tab W500 sports Windows 7 Home Premium.
The tablet is now available from B&H for $549 plus free shipping, but B&H is closed for Passover at the moment. Several other stores have it in stock or are taking pre-orders for the tablet and expect to have it in stock by next week.
The Acer Iconia Tab W500 features a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, a 1 GHz AMD C-50 dual core processor, Radeon HD 6250 graphics, 2GB of DDR3 memory and a 32GB solid state disk. It has 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth, 2 USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI port, Ethernet jack, and front and rear cameras.
The tablet also comes with a detachable keyboard allowing you to use the computer as a laptop.
