A great upgraded tablet with intel's latest chipset
Acer introduces the upgraded version of its earlier tablet, the Iconia W4 sporting an 8 inch IPS LCD display with optical binding that reduces glare and improves viewing angle. The display resolution is 1280 x 800 pixels with a ppi of about ~280 to improve viewability to a large extent.
The device runs the latest Windows 8.1 OS to augment the Intel’s latest 1.8GHz Bay trail chip which makes transition between apps brisk and immediate, so it is a welcome refreshment from the earlier W3.
The 5MP camera is capable of shooting Full HD videos at 30FPS frame rate with vibrant colour details even with the low amount of pixels per square inch. Also, it hosts an array of connectivity options like a USB port, a micro USB port, an HDMI port and a micro HDMI port and a microSD slot to allow it to connect to HD devices and accessories like external keyboards and store additional media if the inbuilt 32 GB is insufficient for you.
The Acer Iconia W4 is a massive upgrade from the earlier W3 and it has a much better display, processor and camera and now can be considered a worthwhile contender when looking for tablets.
Acer was the first to debut an 8-inch Windows 8 tablet with the Iconia W3, but since then everyone from Dell to Lenovo to Toshiba has entered the market. The Iconia W4 (starting at $299, $349 as configured) looks to up the ante by offering a much-improved IPS display and Intel\'s latest quad-core Atom processor in a sleeker design. As with competing slates, you also get a free copy of Office Home & Student. Is the Iconia W4 the perfect mix of...
Pros: Beautiful display; Long battery life; Solid build quality; microHDMI port
Cons: Heftier than 8-inch competition; Lackluster camera; Speakers a bit soft
