Having followed the inception, release, and development of the technological phenomenon known as the "tablet" so intently, the all-new Acer Iconia is a thing of pure beauty. Now available on pre-sale for a mid to late April release; the dual-screen, touch-operated tablet device has already breached the future of tablet-to-laptop hybrids while iPad is still bickering with the competition over first gen tab domination.
For the true geeks: This awesome Windows7 Premium loaded tablet will feature an Intel i5 processor along with 4GB of memory, a 640GB SATA hard drive, and a 1.3 megapixel HD webcam. The device will support USB 3.0 and offer two USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI port, and an Ethernet port as well. The Iconia weighs 6.18 pounds, and will respond to two handed touch on it's bottom panel by switching to an on-screen touch keyboard.With 14-inch screens and a $1,199 price tag, this tablet is obviously slated for competition with the big boys of the laptop world, and not just the tablet market.
