Acer today took the wraps off two of its latest convertible tablets – the 1825PT and the 1825PTZ. The releases belie Acer’s recent announcement that it has no plans of entering the slate or tablet PC market.
Both tablets share the same 11.6in, 1,366 x 768 pixels’ screen and are equipped with matching keyboards. The main point of difference between the slates is their processors – the PT features an Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 CPU while the PTZ is powered by an Intel Pentium SU4100 chip. Both processors are clocked at the same 1.3GHz frequency, but the PT boasts of 4GB of RAM against the PTZ’s 3GB.
For storage, Acer has equipped the tablets with a 250GB HDD and Windows 7 Home Premium is pre-installed on both. But that is all the information currently available on the new releases in terms of specifications. Acer has been silent on the connectivity options and the battery life it has provided the tablets.
There is no word either on when the two tablets will be available in the retail market, though interested users can pre-order the 1825PTZ at a price of €693.15. As for the 1825PT, pricing is still under a shroud.
