An updated version of the months-old Acer Iconia W3
has been shown off in a new video. The Iconia W4, said to be running on the recently-revealed
quad-core Intel Atom Z3740 clocked at 1.33GHz and supported by 2GB of RAM, appears to just be a basic upgrade to its internals rather than a complete product overhaul.
The IPS panel on the 8.1-inch tablet tried out by Bouweenpc
is believed to be a better one than the display used in the Iconia W3
, though it has the same 1280x800 resolution as before. The 32GB of storage is identical to the W3, though only half is usable due to Windows 8.1 being pre-installed. The front-facing 2MP webcam remains the same, though the rear-facing version has been upgraded to 5 megapixels. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS are also included.
It is suggested that the Iconia W4 will ship for around 330 euro ($445), though a release date will remain unknown until Acer formally announce the tablet.
