Acer Iconia W4 Small-Screen Windows Tablet in Video

Posted on 29 September 2013, Last updated on 06 March 2014 by

At IDF we heard about three Baytrail-T devices. The ASUS T100 was launched, the Dell Encore was shown but the Acer Iconia was only mentioned in a press event. Finally we get confirmation that it exists along with a first-look by Tomas Hochstenbach of

Acer Iconia W4

The Acer Iconia W4 is clearly going to replace the rather poor W3, a small-screen tablet on Clovertrail that didn’t really have the best specifications. With the W4 we have the Intel Atom Z3740 (Baytrail, 1.3Ghz quad-core) and 2GB of RAM.

  • Screen: 1280×800, wide viewing angle
  • 5MP Rear Cam
  • 2MP front cam
  • Micro-USB, MicroSD card reader, a Micro-HDMI, Headset port.
  • 5-point Multitouch
  • GPS
  • BT4, Wifi b/g/n
  • Windows 8.1 (Office included)

The price is said to be €330 euros for a 32GB version which, considering the Toshiba Encore is €299 and has the same specs, could be too much. Acer often plays at the lower-end of the pricing ranges so perhaps we’ll see immediate discount to €299. Expect a US equivalent (pre-tax) price of around $300.

In the video below you’ll see a surprisingly thick tablet. Did Acer simply upgrade the Iconia W3 internals?

    I can hardly wait for people to start complaining about price & then wonder why these devices are always junk.

    Needs an active digitizer stylus for pinpoint accuracy.

    The person in the video tried to close the window several times, without success.

    Needs an optical mouse for pinpoint accuracy.

    Sounds better than the current model….

    So, you need an adapter if you want to plug in a USB flash drive?

    Can you boot from a flash drive?


  5. Asdf says:

    It probably will require a micro usb to usb b adapter. The current model (w4) does and so do nearly all the current generation tablets especially the sub 10 inch models.

  6. Asdf says:

    I should,have written the current model W3. It can boot from a flash drive at least for a recovery drive, so the answer is probably yes.
