Acer Chromebook Tab 510 debuts with optional 4G/LTE and a robust design
The Tab 510 (and its Enterprise variant) is Acer's latest tablet with Chrome OS. It also features stylus support, up to 11 hours of battery life and has 4G/LTE-capable SKUs thanks to its Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 platform. The OEM has also equipped it with a slightly rugged build for resistance to the rigors of everyday casual or business use.
The Acer Chromebook Tab 510 may have launched in the shadow of the much more premium Spin 714 at GPC 2022. Then again, it offers a 10.1-inch 1920x1200 16:10 FHD IPS display compatible with the same stylus as the higher-end 2-in-1. Similarly, it offers the same anti-microbial coating for its Gorilla Glass protective layer.
The Chromebook Tab 510 and Spin 714 also have MIL-STD 810H-rated builds, which consists of reinforced corners and an "impact-resistant" build in the former. Then again, it swaps the 714's Alder Lake platforms for the Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 SoC.
The Tab 510 also features a 5MP webcam and a single 8MP rear-facing camera. It also has an optional "Folio" keyboard dock/case for more of a complete PC experience. Acer did not mention how much that accessory costs, although the OEM did mention that the Chromebook Tab 510 will start at US$399.99 on its release to the North American market in July 2022.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
