Acer's 8.1-inch Iconia W3 Windows 8 tablet is officially available in the United States from Office Depot and Staples. This smaller tablet provides the full Windows 8 experience via its dual-core 1.8GHz Atom Z2760 processor. While not one of the fastest x86 processors, the Atom Z2760 sips power, allowing for up to eight hours of battery life.

It weighs in at just over a pound and measures in at under one-half-inch thick. It's screen is capable of 1,280x800 pixels, which is good enough for 720p video. Acer is also including the full Office suite for free with the tablet, adding some value to an already well-priced machine.

 

It features a front-facing and rear-facing camera, both of which are 2-megapixel snappers. For wireless connectivity, Acer has included Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11b/g/n wireless. The 32GB version is available from Office Depot for $349, though a 64GB version should be available sometime in the future.
