Acer’s upcoming Iconia W3, the smallest Windows 8-powered tablet to date, has stopped being an enigma about a month ago, but the thing is still not technically official. Then again, we’re getting there, as the tab is now listed on Acer Finland’s official website.
Remember, another one of the company’s regional arms, Acer Russia, confirmed a couple of weeks ago that the W3 is due out on June 4 (still no word if that’s a local or global ETA).
Intriguingly, there’s no mention on acer.fi of a launch date or price point, so we still don’t know if we should trust Amazon and expect the gizmo to cost $380. What we do know for sure is the Iconia W3-810 will come with an 8-inch WXGA (1,280 x 768 pix res) LCD screen, an Intel Atom Z2760 processor (likely clocked at 1.8 GHz), 2 GB of RAM, 64 GB of on-board storage, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, microHDMI and a battery rated at 8 hours of use on a single charge.
There will also be a keyboard dock escorting the Iconia W3, though chances are it will be an optional accessory worth an extra $100 or so. All things considered, do you think this could be the beginning of a new era for Win 8 tablets? Or is the W3 still not cheap enough to become a mainstream hit?
