Acer have announced a starting price of US$499 for their new Iconia W510 tablets.

These devices will have Windows 8 and Intel’s Atom chip code-named Clover Trail.

In addition, they will have 10.1-inch Gorilla Glass screen, weigh 598 grams and offer up to nine hours of battery life.

The base $499 model will come with 32GB of solid-state drive storage while the $599 model will come with a 64GB SSD.

The Iconia W510 will become available on Nov. 9, shortly after Microsoft ships Windows 8 in PCs and tablets starting on Oct. 26.

The W510 models will have 2GB RAM, a 2-megapixel front camera and an 8-megapixel back camera, Acer said in a statement.

The 64GB Iconia W510 will be priced at $699 with a keyboard dock, and $799 with a dock and a two-year warranty. The dock has a built-in battery that will add an extra nine extra hours to the tablet’s run time, totalling 18 hours of battery life.

It’ll be interesting to see these devices in the flesh as the promo shots look pretty cool.

Great pricing by Acer – They have a realistic grasp of reality.
