Acer has officially announced the first 8 inch Windows 8 tablet, the Iconia W3 today. The device actually showed up on Amazon almost a month before the official announcement, but was pulled out. The device comes with a 8.1-inch 1280 x 800 LCD display, and is powered by an Intel Atom Z2760 Clover Trail CPU.
The crisp 8.1-inch LED-backlit display brings 720p video to life with incredible detail and brightness. The 1280 x 800 resolution makes photos and multimedia as well as text and graphics, appear crisp and clear. The tablet also features front- and rear-facing 2MP webcams ensure that customers can capture images and video for social networking, video conferencing and sharing.
The device comes with an optional keypad which can convert it into a mini laptop. The keyboard is actually quite bigger than the tablet. Since it runs full version of Windows 8, you can install al program and also use the power of live tiles and Windows Store on this tablet.
The new tablet is available with either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage, and customers can add an additional 32GB via microSD for extra storage and convenient transfer of photos and video between devices.
