The Acer Iconia W3 tablet, which was announced back at Computex 2013 in early June, is the world’s first Windows 8 tablet with an 8-inch screen. Featuring an Intel Atom dual-core processor and the full Windows 8 experience, the Iconia W3 even comes pre-installed with the latest Microsoft Office Home and Office 2013.
Unfortunately, one of the biggest complaints about the Iconia W3 tablet was the TN display’s astonishingly poor viewing angles and brightness. It is for this reason that Acer is already planning an Iconia W3 refresh to address this issue, with the upgrade to an IPS panel in addition to a thinner and lighter chassis.
According to an Acer spokesperson, the Iconia W3 refresh is slated for a launch in September – a mere three months from the original tablet’s unveiling.
