Last month we reported that Acer was working on an 8 inch tablet that would run on Windows 8. We also posted some alleged leaked images of this tablet, believed to carry the Acer Iconia W3 moniker. Soon after that this tablet appeared on Amazon, only to be pulled a short while later. Acer’s official website is now listing this tablet, confirming once and for all that there is indeed an 8 inch Windows 8 tablet on the way, officially called the Acer Iconia W3, and it looks exactly like it was depicted in those leaked images.
This tablet comes with a pre-installed copy of Windows 8 Pro, an Intel Atom Z2760 processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. Two models with 16GB and 32GB of internal storage will be offered. It has a WXGA 8.1 inch 1280×768 display and a 2 megapixel camera. Believed to be a competitor for Apple’s hugely popular iPad mini tablet, it is not yet known when exactly the Acer Iconia W3 tablet will be released to the public, though it is expected to be formally released at Computex, next month. Details about its pricing have not yet been revealed as well.
