Acer Iconia W4 tablet is now official
The Acer Iconia W4 was revealed on an Acer US page but it was removed shortly after its appearance. A cached version of that page is available here but this new Windows 8 tablet has been officially revealed by Acer Singapore in the meantime.
The specs displayed by the product page on Acer Singapore's website are the same as those listed on the Acer US page that is no longer available at this time. These are the main specs of the Acer Iconia W4-820:
- Processor: 1.33 GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3740
- Memory/Storage: 2 GB LPDDR3; 64GB eMMC internal storage and microSD support
- Cameras: 5 MP back, 2 MP front
- Display: 8-inch WXGA backlit LED multi-touch with 1,280X800 pixels
- Connectivity: Acer Nplify WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth, HDMI, microUSB
- Operating system: Microsoft Windows 8.1 32-bit
- Battery/Autonomy: 2-cell 4,960 mAh Lithium-Polymer; up to 8 hours video
- Weight/Dimensions: 0.95 pounds; 8.62X5.31X0.43 inches
The price listed for the Acer Iconia W4-820 by Acer Singapore is $699 SGD, roughly $558 USD. Obviously the price of the slate in the US will be considerably lower since Acer US briefly listed the slate priced at $330 USD and the product should hit the American market before the end of this year's holiday shopping season.
