Unboxing the Acer Iconia W3

Last week I had the opportunity to attend BUILD 2013 in San Francisco, where Microsoft was bold enough to offer not one, but two tablets to every BUILD attendee! This is a picture-post on the Acer Iconia W3 unboxing for your delight, one of the first small tablets running the full Windows Pro in an 8” tablet.

First Impressions

So far I have been enjoying the tablet. Most of all, the small factor makes it really comfortable in portrait mode, which is great for reading and browsing through content. The performance is relatively good, although not close to the Surface Pro.

The only downside I can clearly see at the moment is the poor screen resolution. The keyboard form factor is a bit weird, although might be convenient if you plan to write a lot on it. So far, I used as a more-portable tablet.

As I develop and deploy application, I hope to be able to tell you more about it. Cheers!
