10 Hot New Tablets

New and notable tablets for business and commercial users.

Already available in Europe, the Acer Iconia-6120 is now making its way to Canada and the U.S. The dual-screen tablet has impressive specifications: two, 14-inch Gorilla Glass HD widescreen LED-backlit LCDs; Intel Core i5-480M Processor 2.66 GHz CPU with Turbo Boost Technology up to 2.93GHz, 4 GB of DDR3 RAM; a 640 GB, 5400 RPM SATA hard drive; 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi; 10/100/1000 gigabit Ethernet LAN; two, 2.0USB ports and one, 3.0 USB port; HDMI output; a 1.3 megapixel webcam; Windows 7 Home Premium; and Microsoft Office Starter 2010.


To use the Iconia's virtual full-sized keyboard, users simply place both palms on the bottom screen to bring up the keyboard. The virtual keyboard uses predictive text to speed up typing and minimize mistakes. The tablet doesn't include a Stylus like the HTC EVO View 4G, but is capable of recognizing handwriting and converting it to text. Users will also be able to take advantage of the Acer Ring Control Interface to access specific applications using customized or predefined gestures, MSNBC reports.


Available for pre-sale from Amazon, the device will begin shipping to customers in the U.S. next month and will be available for $1,199.99 through Acer retail partners.
