Acer 8-inch Bay Trail tablet is out

Written by Fuad Abazovic



Windows 8.1 for $329.99

Lenovo is launching its Miix2, an 8-inch ISP 1280x800 Bay Trail tablet with Windows 8.1 that will sell for $299.99. It even has Office preinstalled in this 32GB tablet.

 

Acer is responding in kind, with the Iconia W4, which features a similar spec and slightly a higher price. Acer plans to sell the Iconia W4 for $329.99. It packs am Intel Bay Trail Atom processor clocked at 1.8GHz and comes with 32GB to 64GB storage. The battery inside should be enough for 10 hours of web browsing or 8 hours of video. Acer didn’t forget a micro HDMI, either, and a microSD slot is on board well, along with a two megapixel front camera and a five megapixel rear one. Of course the bigger camera can record 1080p video. The device weighs 0.91 lbs (415 grams) and is 0.42 inch (10.75 mm) thin. There will be a Crunch keyboard that will be able to charge your tablet but currently we don’t know the price of this accessory.

Despite the fact that this is a well spec’d tablet, the question remains if the Windows 8.1 is a good choice for touch devices, namely small tablets. We know an OS or two that might be a better choice, but then again if you want a Windows on tablet with decent hardware and full x86 compatibility this might be one of your best bets.

The device should ship this month for $329.99 for 32GB and $379.99 for 64GB version.
