acer-iconia-w3.jpgAcer have confirmed the rumour that they are to release an 8-inch Windows 8 tablet, today lifting the covers off their Acer Iconia W3 tablet.

Measuring 8.1 inches across and 11.3mm thick, the tablet is powered by a dual-core Intel Atom Z2760 processor, clocked at 1.8GHz.

Housing a display running at 1280×800 resolution, the tablet comes equipped with rear and front cameras (both 2MP), with storage options varying from 32GB to 64GB.

Looking to court those aiming to do some serious work on a tablet, the Iconia W3 also comes with Microsoft’s Office Home & Student 2013 pre-installed.

Ready to hit stores later this month, expect to pay somewhere around £320 for the 64GB machine and £280 for the 32GB edition, providing Acer keep pricing close to the conversion rates from the price in Euros given so far.
