Acer W3-810 8.1 inch Windows 8 tablet spotted on Amazon for $379.99

It’s hard to say that Windows 8 tablets have done much for the market, but that certainly hasn’t stopped manufacturers from pushing the devices out. Well, if you’ve been pining for a smaller Windows 8 tablet to call your own, Acer has your back with the W3-810. This 8.1 inch tablet can be found on Amazon for only $379.99.

The W3-810 stands a chance to win quite a few people over. Smaller tablets are not only cheaper, but are easier to bring along with you. This much is true for the W3-810, but $380 is still a bit cheap for an operating system that hasn’t really proved to be real competition to Android tablets and iPads. Nonetheless, the smaller display on Acer’s new Windows 8 tablet is definitely attractive, and that might be enough for a few people looking for a new tablet.

Rocking a 8.1 inch 1280 x 800 display, 1.8GHz Intel Atom CPU, 2GB of RAM, the W3-810 isn’t underpowered in the least bit. Still, there’s no mention of expandable storage, so you’ll be stuck with whatever memory left in the tablet that Windows 8 itself doesn’t take up. Then again, the photo above looks to reveal such a slot, but the jury is still out on that one. Other specs include a Micro HDMI port, Micro USB 2.0 port, 2 megapixel cameras on both the front and back, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and other goodies that have become standard in any tablet today.

Windows 8 has an uphill battle ahead of it to become a viable tablet option, as Android tablet and iPads  unquestionably dominate the market today. Could cheaper Windows 8 tablets at lower price points turn it around?

    The lower pic shows what I’m guessing would be a micro sd slot underneath the buttons. Assuming the pic is accurate.
