Acer is one of the players at Computex 2011, having announced their new MeeGo-based tablet known as the Iconia Tab M500. The device can be considered the first Meego-based tablet, despite we’ve seen a few tablets that are capable of booting into multiple OSes including MeeGo.

The Iconia ab M500 has a 10.1-inch touch screen and is powered by an Intel Atom processor with a currently unknown CPU speed. The tablet weighs only 700 grams, which is definitely handy for users on the go.

Currently, it still lacks of further info about its hardware and software specs. The only known about its software is it offers a customized circular interface which makes extensive use of widgets. This custom UI is also dubbed as “snackable” and designed to keep important content easily accessible. A clip is included below showing the Acer tablet in action.

  4. In any case Acer showed it displaying several live widgets on its 1280×800 resolution screen.

    The device seemed a little unresponsive when Lee was demoing it, but one interesting feature is a circular user interface brought up on the screen with a multi-touch gesture, which appears to give access to content stored on the device in a user-friendly way.
