It is Google’s Android OS which has made the seven-8 inch tablets a popular gadget amongst the users and this had even prompted Cupertino based tech giant, Apple to foray into the smaller tablet market with the launch of the Apple iPad Mini with a 7.9 inch display. And recently, Windows OS maker Microsoft went on to lower the minimum screen resolution from 1366 x 768 pixels to 1024 x 768 pixels which hinted that Microsoft could possibly be planning to bring smaller tablets to compete with the Android tablets and the iPad Mini. And today a bunch of images of what is said to be the Acer Iconia W3 have appeared on the web.

The Acer Iconia W3 could go on to be the first Windows 8 tablet with an 8 inch display with a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels and as we can see in the image, the tablet will have accessories like the keyboard dock and a flip cover with a kickstand. The specifications of the Acer Iconia W3 are not out of the world and the tablet will arrive with a 1.8 GHz Intel Atom Z2760 processor which will be coupled with 2GB of RAM, while the tablet is said to run on Windows 8 Pro OS and not on the scaled down Windows RT OS which is a great news as users will be able to make full use of the OS.
