New Delhi, June 27: Taiwanese firm Acer has launched world's first 8.1-inch Windows 8 tablet the Iconia W3 which is believed to be the smallest tablet running on the latest operating system from Microsoft, the Window-8 operating system.
Iconia W3 comes with a 8.1-inch display with 1280×800 pixels resolution. Powered by Intel Atom chipset backed by 2GB RAM and 32GB memory Iconia W3 has 2-megapixel front and rear cameras. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, Micro-USB and Micro-HDMI.
The device weighs 540 grams and is 11.35mm thick. The Iconia W3 costs Rs 30,499 onwards.
Acer Iconia W3 comes with an optional full-size Bluetooth keyboard that is also capable of holding the tablet upright from typing and doubles up as a screen-protector/ cover for the tablet when not in use.
Performance wise, it is a pretty decent tablet as on inside it has the Intel CloverTrail Z2760 chipset which is a dual-core chipset clocked at 1.8GHz which works in tandem with 2GB of RAM and has 32GB of internal memory.
To sweeten the deal further, Acer is bundling the student edition of Microsoft Office 2013, with the Iconia W3.
However, lack of mobile data connectivity may look disappointing to many, something you would not expect in a tablet priced at Rs 30,499.
