Leak: 8.1-inch Windows 8 tablet from Acer appears, removed from Amazon
Acer is preparing to release an eight-inch Windows 8 tablet in the near future, according to a leak. A page listing the Acer W3-810 tablet on Amazon appeared far earlier than planned, revealing images of the mobile device as well as its internal specifications, shortly after the company presented a number of <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/284921==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/05/03/notebook.screen.can.face.away.from.user.be.used.as .tablet/" rel='nofollow'>new notebooks</a> and a <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/284922==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/05/03/ips.display.at.1024x768.12ghz.quad.core.processor/" rel='nofollow'>7.9-inch Android tablet</a> to the media. <br />
<br />
The since-removed <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/284923==http://www.amazon.com/Acer-Computer-W3-810-1600-8-1-Inch-Tablet/dp/B00CM1BN5G/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1367600304&sr=1-1#productDetails" rel='nofollow'>listing</a> found <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/284924==http://www.theverge.com/2013/5/3/4297490/acer-w3-810-8-inch-windows-8-tablet-specs-price" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">by</a> <em>The Verge</em> showed the tablet as having an 8.1-inch display running at 1280x800, powered by a dual-core 1.8GHz Intel Atom processor with 2GB of RAM. Storage is pegged at 32GB, rear and front cameras are rated at 2-megapixel, and it also has a micro USB 2.0 port and micro-HDMI port. Battery life is said to be around 8 hours, and weighs in at 1.1 pounds. Amazon listed the price of the W3-810 at $380, though this may still change. <br />

Microsoft updated the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/284925==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/03/29/ms.clears.the.way.for.the.introduction.of.smaller. windows.8.tablets/" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">specification requirements</a> for Windows 8 tablets in March, allowing for smaller 7- and 8-inch tablets to be created, along with a reduction in the minimum usable resolution from 1366x768 to 1024x768.
