Acer's 2nd Gen Iconia hits Malaysia

8-inch Iconia W4 to come with Win 8.1 and MS Office out of the box

Acer’s 2nd gen Iconia tablet is finally available on Malaysian soil; having made its debut about a mere month ago. 

New and improved

Boasting an improved screen, the Intel powered tablet has quite a lot to offer over its predecessor, namely an IPS screen, the latest Intel Bay Trail 1.8Ghz processor and has gotten a wee bit skinnier as well, measuring in at about 5.3mm thick. On top of all that the Iconia W4 gets Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 bundled in for free.

The rest is pretty standard fare, packing a 2MP front and 5MP rear camera, with up to 32GB expandable storage.  The Iconia W4 also has a battery rating of up to 10 hours, but we have yet to confirm that with real-world testing.

The Acer Iconia W4-820 retails for RM 1,099.
