That the country is seeing an enormous rise in the tablet PC segment is no news. To exploit this very demand, consumer electronics giant Acer today unveiled the Iconia W4 tablet PC with Intel Inside for the market in India. The tablet will be competing for market share against numerous other domestic branded (which sell for a lower price) and tablets from international manufacturers like Huawei and Samsung.

Speaking of Iconia W4’s specifications, it comes with an 8-inch panel with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, which should probably be good enough for you if you aren’t a multimedia buff. The display also boasts ‘Zero Gap technology’ which according to the company makes the gap between the display and digitizer minimum. The highlight of the device is the Intel processor, which comes in its Atom incarnation, clocked at 1.8GHz. The device will be available in 32GB and 64GB storage options, with either sporting 2GB of RAM.

There will be a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD GPU to take control of the graphics on the tablet, with Windows 8.1 being the operating system of choice. The W4 will also pack a duo of a 5MP Autofocus rear and a 2MP front camera to handle the imaging on the device. Battery is an impressive 4960mAh unit, which Acer claims will last 8 hours on non-stop video, which if true, is as impressive as it gets for a non-iOS powered tablet.

The Acer Iconia W4 has been priced at Rs. 24,999 and Rs. 26,999 for the 32GB and 64 GB variants respectively.
