Who said that Windows is not cool? This tablet is a great beast and Windows must not be respected as Windows Mobile arrives. Microsoft will fight this batter with products like Acer Iconia W500.
This is from the official press release from Acer
“The Acer Iconia Tab W500 is the perfect tablet for people who want the touch capabilities that are so natural and efficient on the go, but also need a Windows environment to access productivity applications for work and school,” said Eric Ackerson, senior product marketing manager, Acer America. “So much of what we’re doing on the go is accessing information and consuming content in cloud-based applications, such as realtors and salespeople who need access to databases and Intranet sites. The Acer Iconia Tab W500 is the ultimate reflection of our lives – able to multitask between work and fun, and ready at a moment’s notice.”
A Nigerian company will be selling it an N85,000 starting June 2011.
