Acer brings Windows 8 to the small (7-8-inch) tablet format at Computex 2013 with the Iconia W3, the first tablet the size of an iPad mini running the latest Microsoft OS.
Featuring regular Windows 8 (not RT), the 8-inch device weights 540g, is 11mm thick and carries a 1280x800 display, dual-core 1.8GHz Intel Atom processor, 2GB RAM, 32 or 64GB storage, front- and rear-facing 2MP cameras and micro-HDMI port.
The package also includes a full copy of Office and an optional full-size keyboard accessory similar to that of 13-inch Acer notebooks.
Will the Iconia W3 impress as a full-featured PC inside a dimunitive tablet? We will know more once it becomes available from July 2013.
