It has 10 inch screen, with a resolution of 1280 x 800, and runs on an Intel Atom processor (Moorestown). The device is running a custom UI, which is described as 'snackable', on top of MeeGo 1.2. Acer expect to release the M500 to the market by the end of the year, but have not disclosed pricing details.
