Acer releases Iconia W4 tablet with Windows 8.1, Bay Trail CPU, 8-inch display Following the failure that was the Iconia W3, Acer has released the updated Iconia W4 tablet with an 8-inch display, Windows 8.1 and an efficient Intel Bay Trail processor.
Acer was supposed to release the tablet in October, but it was quietly delayed for nearly three months.

To bring back media attention, the company is re-unveiling the tablet at CES.

The tablet is thick at 10.75mm, and on the heavier side at 0.92 pounds, and it keeps the plain form factor of its predecessor. The display is a 720p, 16:10 IPS LCD screen using Zero Air Gap technology for anti-glare.

Under the hood is a 1.8GHz quad-core Intel Bay Trail processor using the company's 4th generation Atom core for peak efficiency. The tablet has dual 2MP/5MP cameras, 32GB internal storage, a microSD slot, and microUSB and microHDMI ports. Promising 10 hours of battery life, the tablet also comes with a free version of Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 for free.

The tablet will sell for $329.99 in the U.S.
