Acer Iconia W4 with IPS display, Bay Trail processor caught on tape
An updated version of the months-old <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/295219==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/06/03/iconia.w3.first.tablet.to.use.relaxed.microsoft.wi ndows.8.requirements/" rel='nofollow'>Acer Iconia W3</a> has been shown off in a new video. The Iconia W4, said to be running on the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/295220==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/09/11/windows.8.android.compatible.chips.could.be.used.f anless.in.tablets/" rel='nofollow'>recently-revealed</a> 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.<br />
<br />
The IPS panel on the 8.1-inch tablet tried out <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/295217==http://www.bouweenpc.nl/nieuws/mobile/exclusive-acer-iconia-w4-hands-on" rel='nofollow'>by</a> <em>Bouweenpc</em> is believed to be a better one than the display used in the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/295218==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/08/05/acer.clearing.iconia.w3.inventory.ahead.of.hasty.r edesign/" rel='nofollow'>Iconia W3</a>, 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. <br />
<br />
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. <br />
