Windows 8 hits the streets in about two weeks, and most major PC makers will either launch new computers on the October 26th release day, or shortly after that. So it’s no surprise that some of those devices are slipping through the FCC website on their way to store shelves.

In the past few days, Windows 8 tablets from Lenovo and Acer have hit the FCC.

Acer Iconia Tab W510

The Acer model is the Iconia W510. It’s a tablet with a 10 inc display, an Intel Atom Z2760 Clover Trail processor, and a starting price of $500.

Acer will offer the tablet with 32GB or 64GB of storage, and there’s an optional docking station which adds a keyboard, extra ports, and an extended battery. The tablet weighs 1.3 pounds, but the weight jumps to 2.6 pounds if you add the optional dock.

Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx

Meanwhile the Lenovo IdeaTab K3011W-F also passed through the FCC this week. While Lenovo hasn’t explicitly told us which of its tablets has that model number, the recently announced IdeaTab Lynx is a safe bet.

As Wireless Goodness notes, most of Lenovo’s other Windows 8 products wear the IdeaPad or ThinkPad brand.

The Lynx is a lot like the Iconia Tab W510. Like the Acer tablet, it will have an Intel Atom Z2760 CPU, a 1366 x 768 pixel display, 32GB to 64GB of storage, and an optional keyboard dock.

But Lenovo’s tablet has a starting price of $599 and a larger 11.6 inch display. It weighs 1.4 pounds without the keyboard dock, or 2.9 pounds with the dock.
