Acer Iconia W4 tablet is now official

The new 8-inch Windows 8 slate has been listed on Acer Singapore's website and will probably hit the US in a few days.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
