First Acer Timeline tablet gets official debut
Acer today finally took the wraps from its first Timeline convertible tablet notebook. The 1825PT puts its 11.6-inch display on a swivel and gives it multi-touch. It's also potentially one of the faster Timelines, with a 1.3GHz Core 2 Duo an option along with a similarly clocked Pentium.
Even with the concessions needed for tablets, Acer claims as much as eight hours of battery life. It also gives headroom for as much as 8GB of memory and has options for 3G and Bluetooth. Acer is selling the 1825PT today in the UK for £600 ($859) and should soon have a US version.
