Acer Iconia W4 Windows 8.1 Tablet Unveiled

by Todd Haselton | October 17, 2013October 17, 2013 10:30 am PDT

Acer on Thursday officially announced the Iconia W4, a Windows 8.1 tablet that offers an 8-inch screen with a 1,280 x 800-pixel display and a relatively friendly price tag.

The tablet, which runs a full version of Windows as opposed to Windows RT, is equipped with Intel’s latest Bay Trail Atom processor, a 5-megapixel camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, micro-HDMI-out, a microUSB port, a microSD card slot for boosting the storage and more. The highlight of the show is probably its IPS display, which Acer says should provide viewing angles at up to 170-degrees. though we’re also excited for the optional keyboard case, which will retail for $80.

The Iconia W4 will make its debut this month. The 32GB model will retail for $330 while a 64GB option will be available for $80. Considering you can boost the storage with a microSD card, though, the 32GB model should be a solid option for most tablet buyers. The tough part will be choosing between the Iconia W4, the Dell Venue 8 Pro, which starts at $299, and the new Lenovo Miix2.
