Remember a few days ago it was rumored that Acer could be debuting Windows 8 devices at Computex in Taiwan this week? Well it turns out that those rumors were right on the money as the manufacturer has taken the wraps off two new Windows 8 tablets. Granted the operating system has yet to be officially launched, but we guess we will know what sort of tablets we can expect when it does. These tablets are the Iconia W510 and the W700, with the former featuring a 10.1” display and will come with a detachable keyboard much like the ASUS Transformer series of Android tablets.

It will sport a SIM card slot, a microSD card slot, micro USB and HDMI ports and will feature a battery that reportedly will provide up to 18 hours of usage. The Acer Iconia W700 on the other hand will be slightly bigger at 11.6” and will come with a multipurpose cradle for different viewing options. It will also feature three USB 3.0 ports, a Thunderbolt port and micro HDMI along with Dolby Home Theater. No word on pricing or availability just yet, but presumably it will be launching after Microsoft has officially announced the availability of Windows 8.
