LONDON, UK and TAIPEI, TAIWAN

Acer designs products to enable its users to explore beyond limits. With this purpose in mind Acer’s ICONIA W Series tablet PCs with Windows 8, dock and cradle options, are designed to provide customers with limitless freedom and versatility for their productivity and entertainment needs. With Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution display, extended battery life, users can work or play, and benefit from the seamless experience of touch and type duality. It is an exceptional tool for an individual with a curious mind and progressive attitude.

ICONIA W510
The ICONIA W510 offers three ways to work: “touch, type and view.” As a tablet, it lets users stay mobile with touch convenience and a light 10.1-inch design. For typing, the tablet connects to its keyboard dock with real, full-travel keys. The ICONIA W510’s battery life extends up to 18 hours when it is docked in the detachable keyboard, which also includes a touchpad and convenient USB 2.0 port. In presentation mode, the keyboard flips back 295 degrees for a shared, free-standing view of a video conference or multimedia.

ICONIA W700
The powerful 11.6-inch ICONIA W700 uses fast and responsive 3rd generation Intel® Core™ family processors, enabling uncompromised performance. This tablet performs just like a PC for everyday computing tasks, from content creation, to running multiple applications and sharing multimedia.

The cradle for the W700 can sit in portrait or landscape modes, and tilts at different angles for easy browsing, sharing and touch control: landscape at 20 degrees for comfortable touch control; or landscape at 70 degrees for notebook-style viewing. Portrait is ideal for reading ebooks and emagazines, while landscape is best for games and movies. The cradle has plenty of ports for connecting peripherals and puts instant productivity at consumers’ fingertips.

The W700 also features Dolby® Home Theater® v4 surround sound for immersive audio, Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution display, and an optional Bluetooth keyboard.

Instant Connectivity and Content Sharing
The ICONIA W700 takes just 6 seconds to boot, 1.5 to resume, and 2.5 to get online. , When it resumes, webpages and emails refresh automatically, so the user is always up to date.

With Acer Always On the user can press the ICONIA W510 and it's on and updated, just like a smartphone. And, it enables up to 3 weeks of standby battery life.

Both tablets ship with AcerCloud to remotely connect to users’ other digital devices wherever, whenever.
