Acer Iconia Tablet with 64GB 8

Acer Iconia W3 is a mid level Windows tablet, including a pretty large 8.1 inches capacitive touch-screen, a fast 1.8 GHz Dual-Core processing unit, and two cameras, a 2 MP back camera and a 2 mega-pixels front side camera. We will get a better idea about this tablet's advantages when we get into more details.

This tablet is a compact tablet, taking into consideration it presents a 8.1 inches screen and it's just 8.58 inches long. The Acer Iconia W3 is just 0.39 inches thick, taking it to the thinnest device's category. This tablet feels a bit heavy for a tablet this size, with a weight of 17.6 ounces. The Acer Iconia W3 is for sale in color gray.

This device is powered by a Intel Atom Z2760 chip, holding a powerful Dual-Core processor ticking at 1.8 GHz with a large 2 GB of RAM memory. A key advantage of the Acer Iconia W3 is the 64 GB large internal storage and an external memory card slot, which allows you to install hundreds of applications and even the heaviest games currently available without even thinking about filling it.

This tablet is equipped with two cameras, a 2 mega-pixels back side camera and a 2 mega-pixels front side camera.

Acer designed the Acer Iconia W3 with a good 8.1 inches screen, and a 800 x 1280 resolution, giving this device a nice graphic quality. This screen uses LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

The Acer Iconia W3 doesn't have a SIM card, because it isn't a GSM enabled device.

This tablet also features some interesting features like Bluetooth, GPS (Global Positioning System) and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your tablet close to another NFC device or tag), and Accelerometer.

This tablet uses a huge 3400 mAh Li-Polymer replaceable battery, which isn't very promising for a tablet like this.

Acer offers the Acer Iconia W3 for $ 150, quite close to other similar tablets.
