We know that the Acer Iconia Tab W500 will be released later this year after its announcement at the recently concluded MWC 2011, and it is nice to know that the Taiwanese computing giant has finally revealed its specifications for the tablet device. Tipping the scales at an extremely lightweight sub-1kg level, you will be able to enjoy a 10″ multitouch display, Windows Home Premium as the operating system of choice, 2GB RAM, UMTS support and a docking station – all for 599 Euros. Of course, the major downsides to this would be its relatively low battery life as it won’t be able to achieve what current generation netbooks can (say 8 to 12 hours), while toting around the docking station will add a significant amount of weight to it. If you’re thinking of bringing this with you on your travels, we would advice you leave the docking station back home.
