Acer Iconia W511 Review

0. phoneArena 04 Apr 2013, 06:20 posted on

Windows 8 hybrids are a relatively new breed, but it seems like a whole lot of tech companies have one on the market already. That includes Acer with its Iconia W511 tablet, which we are about to take through its paces. It is a 10.1-inch slate powered by an Intel Atom processor paired with a dock that adds a physical keyboard and extra battery life. The device's specs can't really make it stand out, but it should be priced accordingly. But will the slate manage to prove itself as both a reliable tablet and a practical notebook substitute? We'll have the answer to that in a few moments!...

Took really long for PA to review this it seems; But it's going for around USD $550 without the dock in my country, and despite the average rating this is the tab to go for if u r comparing this with the Surface RT simply because it runs full windows 8, not RT.

It nice. The design is quite good. And cheaper having windows 8 with desktop on board. I'd say good Job Acer..

Wrong. The W511 is equipped with A-GPS chip. At least here, in Russia all W511's are GPS-enabled.
