Amazon Leaks the World's First Small-Screen Windows 8 Tablet

By Jamie Condliffe on at

Rumours have swirled recently suggesting that a new breed of small Windows 8 tablets would soon appear in the wild. Now, Amazon has managed to accidentally leak the first tablet of its kind.

The Acer Iconia W3, previously rumoured to be the first small-screen Windows 8 tablet, made a brief appearance on the website of Bezos and co. With a 1280 x 800 resolution 8.1-inch screen and Intel dual-core Atom processor, PC World claims that its list price was $380 (around £250). Otherwise, details are scant.

Obviously the tablet was listed as Out of Stock, and there was no release date published, but it should be enough to convince people that little Windows tablets are indeed on the way. [PC World]
