Acer Russia confirms June 4th introduction of the Acer Iconia W3 8.1 inch Windows 8 tablet
Thanks to the size of the screen, the slate is expected to be relatively more affordable than other Windows 8 tablets, and should compete with the 7.9 inch Apple iPad mini and low priced 7 inch Android tablets led by the Amazon Kindle Fire. The Acer Iconia W3, as the tablet is expected to be named, offers an 8.1 inch display with resolution of 1280 x 800. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.8GHz Intel Atom Z2760 processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. A microSDslot will allow for the expansion of storage. Both front and back cameras weigh in at 2MP and the battery provides for 8 hours of use.
Acer will be offering some accessories including a physical QWERTY keyboard that can dock to the slab, and a case that can double as a stand. The price of the tablet is expected to remain at the $379.99 seen on the pulled Amazon listing.

Looks like an oversized One X, and i actually like it. Just that im not sure if i should get this or wait and see what HTC and Nokia will offer in tablets, wait until this year end (and Intel has new chips coming as well).
I dont see a point in spending a lot for a tablet, something under $400, and if it does whatever i want it to do efficiently, it is good enough.
