Acer Iconia W500: Price & Hands On Review with Convertible Tablet

According to the companies official press release this device was designed to incorporate the best of two worlds: Tablet and PC, with this in mind they have come up with a device that combines both the user friendliness of a tablet but has the familiarity of a PC.

This device uses both a tablet screen and physical keyboard that can be used separately, or combined together to offer the user a unique netbook experience. This tablet boasts a 10.1inch, 1280×800 screen, 32GB SanDisk mSATA SSD for storage, a 1GHz AMD C-50 CPU and2GB of RAM. You can read more on its specs in this post from Laptopmag.com, you can also see a video demo of this tab at the bottom of our post.

Thanks to this post from Rich Trenholm we can tell you that this device will become available in the UK in early March, you can expect to pay around £450 for the tablet on its own or £530 for both the keyboard and the Tablet. You can read his post and a full hands on review with this device by following this link over to Reviews.cnet.co.uk.

Acer has had great success at MWC with the popularity of its other new devices like the Iconia phone and the Iconia A500 tab, we think this device will also follow suite and become just as popular as its siblings in the Iconia range. With a very reasonable price tag we are expecting big things from this tablet/netbook after it’s released.

Will you be purchasing one of these devices? If not what else do you have in mind?
