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 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.
This Tablet works like a Desktop/Laptop with Windows 8.1.nnAll the desktop apps that work on Windows 8.1 work on the TabletnnIt supports all devices that a Desktop/Laptop running windows would; includingnn1) Pendrivesn2) External Hard Drivesn3) External DVD Writers/Romsn4) Wired / Wireless Mouse and Keyboardnetc.nnNote all the above devices have to be connected via USBnnThe Box includes Mini USB (Male) to Normal USB (Female) so you can easily connect all the above mentioned devices.nnRegarding Space the 32 GB Device comes with 13.8 GB Free SpacennIt supports upto 64GB MicroSD CardnnBattery will Last for about 8 to 9 Hours with Normal Usage and WIFI turned On.
I have the Ordered Acer Iconia W4-820 Tablet(64 GB Model) on 27 Dec(10% Cashback on HDFC Credit and Debit Cards) and got it on 30 Dec.nnDO NOT BUY 32GB Model, GO FOR 64GB Model.nMy tablet(64 GB Model) showingn39 GB free of 51.9 GBn[It was around 39 GB free. Exact figure I forgot but it was less than 40 GB free]nnIt supports mircoSD card upto 32 GB only.nIf you buy 32 GB microSD card it will cost you Rs 1500-1600. So better go for 64 GB Model(price difference is Rs 2000 and after 10% cashback it will be Rs 1800 investment for 32 GB more inbuilt memory)n[It has full Windows 8.1(not Windows RT) that's why it consumed more disk space]nnI will write detailed review later.nFor now I will say it's not very good(touch responsiveness on samsung device is much better(I have been using Samsung Galaxy smartphone since 2011 and currently having Samsung Galaxy S3) ) tablet but OK.
