We spotted the Acer Iconia W3 Windows tablet back in June and it was the first Windows tablet with an 8.1” display, making it a pretty portable solution for those who prioritize mobility. However it seems that there are many customers out there who aren’t too pleased with the Iconia W3’s display, which according to its specs features an 8.1” display with a 1280×800 resolution, which some have deemed to be the “worst display” in the market, although we’re guessing they’re talking more about its quality rather than its size or resolution.
In any case it seems that a report from tweakers.net has suggested that Acer is currently working on an updated model of the Iconia W3 which will have a better display and come in a thinner body. The report has suggested that instead of using a TN-LCD display which is found in the current model, Acer will be replacing it with a IPS one instead, and that this updated version of the Iconia W3 should make its way into stores come September. If this is true, we guess this is good news for would-be owners, although we’re not sure current owners of the tablet will be too pleased to hear about this.
