Acer launched its first 8-inch Windows 8 tablet called the Acer Iconia W3-810, but the device wasn't equipped with very appealing specs. So the PC manufacturer was expected to roll out an upgraded and improved successor at IFA, but it never came.
Nevertheless, it appears that the company is readying a new slate which has been dubbed the Iconia W4-820.
Liliputing reports that the new Iconia will come featuring a 8.1-inch IPS LCD display with improved viewing angles and a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. Most importantly, the W4-820 will enjoy the Intel Atom Bay Trail processor treatment, jumping in the same band wagon as the Toshiba Encore and ASUS Transformer Book T100.
Acer is also adding Intel HD4000 graphics, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory and two cameras, a 2MP front cam and a 5MP rear one.
The slate will reportedly ship with Windows 8.1 (with Microsoft Office 2013 Home & Student attached to it) and the price will not exceed the $446 / €330 margin. Expect to spot it by the end of October.
