Acer Windows 8 tablet pricing revealed

New Zealand based blogger Paul Spain from Tech Jungle received the full specification sheets and local pricing of Acer's upcoming Windows 8 tablets. The information was provided by Microsoft New Zealand, it reveals Acer's cheapest Windows 8 tablet, the Iconia Tab W510, will cost NZ$999, excluding tax this works out to around US$712 at the current currency exchange rate.

The Iconia Tab W510 is a 10.1" tablet with Intel's Atom Z2760 1.5GHz processor, a 1366 x 768 pixel screen, and 64GB of flash storage. The tablet's thickest point is 8.8mm and is weighs just 600g. A keyboard dock will also be available for an additional NZ$200, which is around US$144.
$712 may seem a little pricey for the tablet by itself, but as Spain points out, it's only $13 more than what Apple charges for the 64GB, Wi-Fi-only iPad. $144 is roughly in line with the prices of keyboard docks for Asus' Transformer tablets, as well. Oh, and keep in mind this is a full-fledged x86 device that should run existing desktop Windows apps in addition to touch-friendly Metro software.
Acer's more expensive tablet will cost NZ$1,799, or roughly US$1,294. The Iconia Tab W700 model has a larger 11.6" screen with Full HD resolution, the Intel Core i5-3317U 1.7GHz processor, and 128GB of storage. This model is 11.9mm at its thickest point and weighs 950g. It will also be available in a bundle with a Bluetooth keyboard for NZ$1,899 (about US$1,366).

Perhaps US pricing will be lower as merely converting the currency isn't a good way to compare pricing in different markets, but otherwise these tablets seem a tad expensive.
