We recently heard about the Acer Iconia W700 tablet with Windows 8 and it looks like that is not the only Iconia branded Windows 8 tablet coming from Acer. In fact, the company has recently announced the Iconia W510. This model will be available a short while after the release of the W700, on November 9th and arrive with a starting price point of $499.99.

In terms of the specific models and pricing. Acer noted a W510-1674 which will sell for $499.99 and have a 32GB SSD. There is also the W510-1422 which has a 64GB SSD and a price tag of $749.99. The W510-1422 will also ship with a keyboard dock which provides additional battery life. And last in terms of specific models, there is the Iconia W510P which is going to be priced at $799.99 and as the P in the name would imply — arrive running Windows 8 Pro. And for those wondering about the need for Pro, this will bring support for legacy Windows programs as well as provide security and authentication through the TPM (Trusted Platform Module).

Otherwise, aside from these specific models and prices — lets get into the general specs. The Acer Iconia W510 will bring goodies to include a 10.1-inch (1366 x 768) HD display with 10-point touch and Corning Gorilla Glass 2, a thickness of 0.35-inches, a battery life of up to 18 hours with the keyboard dock being used (or 9 without) and powered by Intel Atom Z2760 processors. The tablet will have 32GB or 64GB of SSD storage, microUSB, full-sized USB, microHDMI, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, a 2 megapixel front-facing HD 1080p webcam and an 8 megapixel rear-facing HD camera with auto-focus, an LED flash and 1080p HD video recording.

Also, as we saw with the Iconia W700, the W510 will have some Acer branded software goodies to include Always Connect, Acer Cloud and Always On. Lastly, the Iconia W510 will weigh in at 1.27 pounds without the keyboard or 2.63 pounds with the keyboard.
