Acer released the first 8-inch Windows 8 device Iconia W3 few months back and device is now selling for just under $300. Even though the device provides great value for the money, it got poor reviews due to two main things. First, the poor LCD display. Second, the last generation Atom processor. Acer has listened to both of these complaints and an updated product named Iconia W4 is coming next month. The Iconia W4 will have same design as W3, but will come with 1.33GHz Atom Z3740 processor and a much improved “wide view angle” display. Similar to current model, it will come with 2GB RAM and 32GB storage. As it is coming next month, we can expect it to run Windows 8.1 out of the box. Are you looking forward to is? via: Engadget ...

Surface Mini Concept Render Just few hours ago, we reported some new information regarding the upcoming Surface ‘mini’ tablet from Microsoft. There is a new information from ZDNet that Surface Mini won’t be released until Sprint 2014. According to Mary Jo Foley, the Surface Mini is coming, but not in calendar 2013 and she expects Surface Mini in early 2014. She also reported that the Surface Mini is going to come preloaded with a Windows 8.1 update, that is codenamed “Spring 2014 GDR.” The Spring 2014 GDR for Windows 8.1 will align with Windows Phone “Blue,” which may or may not be called Windows Phone 8.1 when it ships, according to my sources. Whatever it’s called, it will be the first “major” update for Windows Phone since Microsoft rolled out Windows Phone 8 in fall 2012. If the new cross-divisional operating system division at Microsoft can pull this off, Microsoft will ...

Neowin has published a report on the supposed Surface 2 specs. As expected, Surface Pro 2 will be powered by Intel Haswell based CPU which will double its current battery life from 3-4 hours to 6-7 hours. While the look and feel of the device will remain the same, it seems Microsoft has refined the kickstand to some extent. Leaked Specs: Haswell-based Core i5 Will help increase battery life significantly RAM doubled from 4GB to 8GB. Not sure how much I believe this since it seems somewhat unnecessary and increases power consumption Device will look similar to the current Pro Microsoft has “refined” the kickstand Possibly one that is more robust stand that is stronger or one that offers alternative viewing angles (speculation) Price will remain the same Launches near the release of Windows 8.1 Microsoft is also planning a large marketing campaign during the launch period to promote the new ...
