Acer Iconia W700 is something that we might frequently see in near future as tablets and PCs are converging. But unlike the usual tablet-notebook hybrid, the upcoming unique device is actually a tablet-desktop combo. The tablet itself will start at $800 and it can be inserted into a cradling station that comes equipped with three USB 3.0 ports. Of course, the station charges W700 as well and users can prop the slate up at either 20- or 70-degree.
Previously, Dell unveiled the Latitude 10 that will dock on a station that has a small-sized HDMI port, Ethernet jack and four USB ports. On the other hand, the dock for HP ElitePad 900 will have an audio line out and VGA port. Under the hood, the Iconia W700 is something unordinary. Instead of the usual Clover Trail processor to run Windows 8, the tablet will feature a full blown Intel Core-i3 processor. The integrated graphics card will allow for extensive productivity tasks and some light gaming.
