The Acer Iconia-6120 has impressive specifications, including 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, 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.

It is the iPad’s world and other tablets are just living in it. That, of course, has not stopped device makers from introducing a slew of new offerings as the role of tablets in the enterprise continues to evolve.  The saving grace of some client hardware vendors trying to keep up with the iPad, or avoid it altogether, may be the emergence of business-class tablets.  In an update to our most recent coverage of tablet offerings, we’ve highlighted seven new tablets, some of which are looking to compete with the iPad through differentiation and some of which are seeking to carve specific niches in particular sectors of the enterprise.
