Windows 8 Acer Iconia W510 tablet priced at $500

Last week, Acer revealed that one of its Windows 8-based tablets, the Iconia W700, would have a price starting at $799 when it goes on sale on October 26th. Today, it was revealed that another Windows 8-based tablet from Acer, the Iconia W510, would have a price of $500.

Engadget reports that the Acer Iconia W510 will have Intel's Atom processor, code named Clover Trail, inside its 10.1 inch tablet. It also reveals that users can choose to purchase an optional keyboard for the Iconia W510.  Without the keyboard, the tablet's batter life is around nine hours, but the article says putting in the keyboard increases the battery time to 18 hours.

The tablet on its own has a microSD slot, a micro-USB port and micro-HDMI port. It also has an eight megapixel camera in the rear and a two megapixel camera in the front. It will also come with a micro-HDMI-to-VGA adapter and a tablet case.The keyboard option ads a full USB 2.0 port, but, oddly, not a full SD card slot.

The tablet comes with 2 GB of RAM. The $500 model gets you a 32 SSD for storage but you can increase that to 64 GB for more money. It's due to launch on November 9th.
