We reveal the hardware in all its photographic splendor.

Acer Iconia W510

Boasting a 10.1-inch, 1280x800 display, the W510 doesn’t offer quite the screen real estate of its 11.6-inch Clover Trail competitors, but it’s just 8.9mm thick and 1.27 pounds—or 2.78 pounds including the keyboard dock, which reportedly extends battery life to 18 hours.

The tablet connects to its dock with a seemingly sturdy click, but only extended PCWorld testing will prove out durability. The tablet includes speakers, a SIM slot, and microSD, microUSB and HDMI ports. The dock adds a full-size USB 2.0 port. The industrial design didn’t wow us compared to other tablets we saw at the event, but, who knows, some people may appreciate the cheery, bright styling.
