Posted on 12 December 2012, Last updated on 03 January 2014 by

After weeks of trying to get hold of a CloverTrail tablet through product managers, PR companies and marketing teams I’ve given up and bitten the bullet and bought one. The Acer W510, with 64GB and dock, will be with me soon and I’m excited to get right into the testing to find out what the platform is capable of.


  • Video playback performance and battery life
  • Keyboard quality
  • Typing quality and battery life
  • Use as a 10 inch tablet
  • Use as a laptop and tablet replacement
  • Intel Quick Sync video performance for video creation and format conversion
  • Wireless Display
  • Sensor features
  • Battery life in many scenarios
  • Storage expansion through SD storage
  • Disk Speed tests
  • Use as home media player
  • Limits of gaming
  • Turbo boost longevity

More information, links, videos on the Acer Iconia W510 here.

Note: I am planning a live Hangout on Friday starting at 2100 CET.

Of course I won’t be doing this immediately and it could be that I get hold of another CloverTrail tablet for some of the more generic tests (like Quick Sync performance which will be the same across all CloverTrail devices) and as I’m buying this unit, I’ll take my time to do long-term testing over the next month so that you get an idea of what’s possible for the January sales, and availability of other CloverTrail devices.
