Acer has unveiled two of the first tablets designed to run Windows 8. The Acer Iconia W510 features a 10.1 inch display and will run about $799 when it hits the market, while the Iconia W700 has an 11.6 inch screen and a $999 price tag.
Both tablets will likely launch this fall… around the time that Microsoft officially launches Windows 8.
Acer hasn’t shared detailed specifications for the tablets yet, but here’s what we know so far.
Acer Iconia W510
Acer’s new 10 inch tablet offers a detachable keyboard dock with a built-in battery. When using the docking station together with the tablet, Asus says you can get up to 18 hours of battery life.
The dock can also be used as a stand — letting you rotate the tablet 295 degrees and use it for watching videos, displaying presentations, or other activities where you might not need to access the keyboard.
The tablet has an IPS, high definition display.

The 11.6 inch model has a full HD display Dolby audio, and 3 USB 3.0 ports.
It comes with a “multipurpose cradle” which lets you tilt the screen back 70 degrees for viewing or 20 degrees for touch navigation.
