Acer announced its Windows 8 tablet, the Iconia W3 back in June to become the first 8-inch Windows tablet ever. One of the major issues we had with the Acer Iconia W3 in our review was its lackluster display, which the tablet featured a WXGA LCD with a resolution of 1280 x 800. Shortly after its release, Acer announced its Iconia W3 would be receiving a better display, and it looks like that’s exactly what the company is doing now that it has announced the Iconia W4.
The Acer Iconia W4 is still an 8-inch display, but instead of its WXGA technology, it’ll feature an IPS display that will not only deliver better color reproduction, but better viewing angles as well. Acer is also making sure its potential customers are aware the Iconia W4 uses “Zero Air Gap technology,” which means there’s no air between the LCD and the panel, which should also improve readability as well as reducing reflection.
Acer not only improved the display on the Iconia W4, but it also upgraded its internals as it’ll now have Intel’s 4th-generation Atom 1.8GHz processor as well as a 5MP main camera and 2MP front-facing camera. The 32GB Iconia W4 will retail for $329.99 while the 64GB version will sell for $379.99, although a microSD slot will be included to further expand storage. Acer’s Iconia W4 will be available later this month.RELATED
