Earlier today, Acer's upcoming, yet still unannounced, W3-810 tablet popped up on Amazon. It was then pulled down in short order, but not before pictures, specifications, and pricing information was grabbed. The W3-810 was originally seen in a leak that took place last month.

The W3-810 will set back potential buyers a total of $379.99 and is powered by a 1.8GHz Intel Atom processor. The 8.1-inch tablet runs Windows 8 and has a screen resolution of 1280x800. The device features 2GB of RAM, which should be enough to keep up with the slightly under powered Atom processor.

The device was listed with 32GB of storage, a 2MP front and rear camera, one micro USB 2.0 port, and one micro-HDMI port. Amazon listed the weight at 1. 1 pounds and battery life as 8 hours.
