Acer W500 / A500 Tablet: Windows 7 and Android 3.0 Honeycomb

As confirmation comes with the news of a price and release date for the Acer W500 / A500 tablet, we understand that these devices will support Android 3.0 Honeycomb and Windows 7 operating systems.

Featuring Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + 3G options, the W500 will also be available with a docking keyboard, if you so wish. But even though this keyboard can be used as a magnetic cover, the main feature would be the netbook appearance. Some might not agree, finding the netbook thicker opposed to the thin tablet appearance.

Reg Hardware has taken a look at Acer’s ‘missing’ tablet strategy, which has been covered over 3-pages. They look at what powers both the Tablet PCs, and how the processor and graphic inwards compare. You can expect 6-hours web browsing and 4-hours video viewing on the W500.

Read the full review here, and while there is no price for the Acer A500 with Wi-Fi + 3G, it is expected that both versions, running Windows and Android 3.0, will ship in April. Currently this should be treated as rumor only, as Google may have other ideas for when we get a piece of Honeycomb.

Let us know what you think of Acer’s tablet strategy in the comments. Will this brand be your next tablet?
