It is the first of its kind and will certainly attract many towards it. Here we take a look at Windows 8 tablet Acer Iconia W3 specs, features and release date details

Acer is set to storm the tablet market with very enticing products. Its tablets are not just in different sizes and different specifications, but also running on different operating systems as well. And the best tab that has become a talking point in the tech world across the world is none other than Acer Iconia W3 that runs on Windows 8 operating system.

Though speculated for long, the 8.1 inch tablet –the first in this size –has been introduced by the Taiwanese tech giant with great fanfare.

This tablet seems absolutely perfect, except just one thing. It has put in just 2-mega pixel rear camera. And I am sure it will regret the decision. Now forget the oft-repeated argument that tablets are not used for taking snaps. May be 10-inch tabs are not used for taking snaps, but millions and millions of people in almost all parts of the world are using their seven and eight inch tablets for taking snaps.  And they enjoy doing that, not ashamed of it.

Notwithstanding the camera issue, the tab will be well received in the market. The new table is going to give an excellent choice to those people who were not very happy with the sort of experience that Android tablets and Apple’s iPads provided. To be true, there are many people who love everything Windows and the latest tablet –not very small and not too huge –is set to give them a good choice. The best thing about this latest tablet from Acer is the fact that the tab comes with the top class specifications and great features. Besides it is not as pricey as Apple iPads. So people who love Windows and the immensely useful features that it brings along with it, they are simply going to fall for it. The fact that the Taiwanese tech giant has taken a lead in launching the Windows 8 tablet will also give it a likely headstart over its future market competitors.

Though there is no doubt that the tablet is really very pricey, nonetheless its features and the fact that it is a Windows 8 tablet will help it grab some traction. The small 8.1-inch Acer Iconia W3 will be available in India for Rs 27,999 before the end of July. When it comes to specifications the Iconia W3 comes with 8.1 inch 1280 x 800 pixels LED resolution that provides the user with a sharp and bright viewer experience. When it comes to processor, it is power-packed and comes with 1.8 GHz duel-core Intel Atom processor Z2760 besides 2 GB RAM and 32 GB memory. Right now it seems to be the only talking point in the tech circles. In India the tablet will be launched towards the end of July.
