Up until now, there have yet to be any Windows 8 tablets that offer anything below a 10-inch screen, although we recently heard Microsoft was planning on introducing a 7-inch Surface tablet in the near future. It looks like Acer is one of the first companies to manufacture a smaller Windows 8 tablet as their device was accidentally outed by Amazon who displayed it on their website briefly.
The confusion may have been a result of Acer announcing a number of its upcoming products on Friday, although none of the devices were called the Acer Iconia W3-810-1600. The tablet Amazon accidentally outed features an 8.1-inch screen and will have a full Windows 8 OS, not Windows RT. Even though this is the first Windows 8 tablet to show up with a screen below 10 inches, we’re sure it won’t be the last one considering the popularity of handheld tablets.

Gmail for iOS has been the go-to application for many of us who use Gmail as their primary email account, but if you want to use other Google products with the application, it has been impossible at this point as Apple currently doesn’t make it possible to change your default applications when opening things like links to websites, YouTube videos or addresses. But Google has just launched a new update to its Gmail for iOS app that now makes it possible to launch not only different default programs, but programs designated for the type of link that’s clicked on.
Prior to the update, clicking on any link within the Gmail for iOS application would launch Safari, but now, users will be able to launch Chrome, Google Maps or YouTube directly from within the app. This is a setting we’re sure many iOS users who also use these Google products would certainly appreciate, although if you would rather not use this feature, you have the choice to turn them on or off within Gmail for iOS’ settings.
