The upcoming convertible should be officially announced on April 29, but its alleged specs were revealed by a Swiss online shop already.

In early March, the Aspire Switch 10 surfaced online in a design database and now it looks like Acer will not call the convertible this way or Iconia W5, but Aspire Switch SW5, as it has just been revealed by a product listing by Swiss e-tailer Brack.

The page has been taken down shortly after it was spotted by German site MobileGeeks, but the images and specs were already revealed. This is the basic setup of the upcoming Acer convertible:

  • Processor: Intel Atom Z3746
  • Memory/Storage: not specified, most likely 2 GB; 64 GB internal storage and microSD support
  • Display: 10.1-inch touchscreen with 1,366X768 pixels
  • Camera: 2 MP webcam
  • Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, micro HDMI, micro USB 2.0 
  • Operating system: Windows 8.1
  • Weight/Thickness: 1.29 pounds; 0.35 inches

The Acer Aspire Switch SW5 will have a stylish aluminum case and is expected to feature a dock with extra battery and standard USB connectivity which will add 6 hours to the standard 8-hour autonomy. Brack's product listing displayed a price of only €368 EUR - roughly $510 USD. More details should be available once Acer officially unveils the product. We will keep you posted on this.
