Acer, expanding its tablet portfolio in India, has announced the 3G variant of its Iconia W4 (Wi-Fi only) tablet dubbed Iconia W4 3G at Rs. 29,999.
The company has announced that the tablet will be available starting Saturday. Further, the tablet can also be pre-ordered from Acer India's Facebook page.
The Iconia W4 3G tablet comes with identical innards as the Iconia W4, except that the former comes with a SIM card slot and 3G connectivity support. The Iconia W4 3G, much like the Wi-Fi only variant, comes preloaded with Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 for creating and editing Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents.
The Acer Iconia W4 tablet runs Windows 8.1, Microsoft's latest operating system for desktops, notebooks and x86 tablets. Windows 8.1 brings new additions like enhanced searching and sharing features Internet Explorer 11, improved touch optimisation and brings back the 'Start' button.
The tablet is powered by 1.8GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3740 'Bay Trail-T' processor coupled with 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM. The Acer Iconia W4 tablet features an 8-inch IPS (1280x800 pixel) display with Zero Air Gap touch technology. It sports a 5-megapixel rear autofocus camera and alongside a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
The Iconia W4 3G tablet comes with 64GB inbuilt storage and supports an additional expandable storage up to 32GB via microSD card. Connectivity options on the tablet include Bluetooth, Micro-HDMI, Micro-USB, Wi-Fi and 3G (via SIM). It packs a 4960mAh battery.
Acer launched the Iconia W4 (Wi-Fi only) in India at Rs. 24,999 for the 32GB model, while the 64GB variant of the tablet was priced at Rs. 26,999. Notably, Acer first launched the Iconia W4 (Wi-Fi) for the US market in October last year.
