Acer Officially Unveils its 8.1-inch Windows Tablet, Reveals Plans for More Touch Devices

Earlier today Acer finally made its Iconia W3 official. For those that aren’t in the know, the W3 is significant in that it represents the very first Windows 8 tablet to come in a smaller form, in this case 8.1-inches and a casing that is 11.3mm thick.

The new Iconia W3 will have a dual-core 1.8GHz Intel Atom Z2760 processor, a 1280×800 display, 2MP front and rear cams and even comes pre-loaded with Microsoft Office & Home Student edition.

So how much will the Windows tablet set you back? The W3 is expected to arrive for around $400, though not exact word on when we can expect it.

Outside of announcing the W3, Acer also revealed that it expects up to 80% of its products to use touch-screen technology by 2015, hoping that new tablets and hybrid devices will help renew the PC market in the years to come.

What do you think of the new 8.1-inch Windows tablet? Additionally, do you agree that creating more devices that use touchscreens will help renew interest in the declining PC market?
