Acer to bring a better display to the Acer Iconia W3

Acer to bring a better display to the Acer Iconia W3
The Acer Iconia W3 will always be known as the first 8.1 inch Windows 8 Pro tablet. But one thing that it definitely doesn't want to be known for is the numerous complaints about the display on the device. The screen has a resolution of 1280 x 800 which works out to a pixel density of 186ppi. Now, there is some speculation that Acer plans on addressing the complaints about the display by producing an updated version of the tablet.

The published report on Tuesday claims that the next version of the Acer Iconia W3 will have an improved screen and will also be thinner and lighter, as well. It will replace the TN-LCD glass currently on the tablet with an IPS display. The updated slate should be on the market by September, although it isn't clear whether Acer will affix the same name to the revised tablet. There is also a possibility that the current price of 329 EUR ($433 USD) for the device will be changed.
