We have been hearing rumors about upcoming 7/8-inch Windows 8 tablets, with Microsoft itself said to be working on one. This leaked Acer tablet, however, is the first to confirm that rumor.
What you see above is the Acer Iconia W3-810, a 7-inch tablet running Windows 8. As you can see the device has been optimized for use in portrait mode, with the Windows button placed near the narrow edge. However, the logo is strangely aligned sideways and favors the landscape orientation.
The tablet is said to have mid-range level specs, with a 1.8GHz Intel Atom processor powering the device. It will also be compatible with accessories such as a flip cover and the keyboard dock seen above.
Not much else is known about this device right now but we’ll keep you posted as we find out.
