With Microsoft expected to launch the Microsoft Surface tablets on October 26th at the stroke of midnight, Acer has decided to make its flagship Windows 8 tablet available on the same day. The Acer Iconia W700 Windows 8 tablet will be launched, also on October 26th, at a price of $799.99. The device, with an 11.6 inch screen, is a Windows 8 Pro model which means it is powered by an Intel processor, in this case, an Ivy Bridge 1.8GHz Core i3 processor, upgradable to core i5. The 11.6 inch display has a 1080p resolution, and the tablet has 4GB of RAM and a 64GB SSD. The camera on back is 5MP while the front-facing shooter is 1MP. Upgrade to the i5 processor and twice the memory for $999.99

A dock comes with the tablet that allows you to view it in widescreen mode at 70 degrees or 20 degrees. While the dock uses the tablet's USB 3.0 port, it comes with three of them and also recharges the tablet. The Acer Iconia W700 weighs in at 2.3 pounds.

Besides The Acer Iconia W700, the manufacturer also displayed back in June, the Acer Iconia W510. This model comes with a 10.1 inch screen and a detachable keyboard  that takes the device from tablet mode to productivity mode with an 18 hour battery life.
