Among the deluge of Windows 8 and Ivy Bridge tablets, this was another one that stood out from the crowd. The Iconia W700 is a Windows 8 tablet with an 11.6-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) multitouch display. It will ships with a cradle that angles the panel at 70 degrees for landscape eyeballing and 20 degrees for finger-touch use. You can also pick up a Bluetooth keyboard to make convert it into a nifty desktop PC replacement. Thicker than most current tablet offerings in the market, the W700 is built around Intel’s Ivy Bridge CPU. It comes with micro HDMI, three USB
3.0 ports, Dolby Home Theater for enhanced audio and a Thunderbolt port. In addition to a Windows key, there are, of course, the obligatory volume rocker, headphone jack, a front facing camera—along with a 5 megapixel autofocus camera at the back.
