Acer's Iconia W3 has made a few unofficial appearance courtesy of their Finnish website and Amazon, and we now have official confirmation of the device. Unveiled here at Computex 2013 in Taipei, the 8.1" tablet is powered by an Intel Atom Z2760 CPU and Windows 8.
The actual hardware on the W3 is similar to what had been previously rumored, including a WXGA touchscreen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, and PowerVR SGX 545 graphics as part of the Clover Trail processor. The device is also the smallest Windows 8 tablet out there, and features a pair of cameras, micro-USB and micro-HDMI.
The W3 will be available in 32GB and 64GB versions as of this month, with a starting tag of 330 euros and 379 euros respectively. Acer is also making a Bluetooth keyboard dock available for an extra 70 euros, although it is larger than the tablet itself, making for an awkward arrangement.
