Amazon accidentally leaks world's first small-screen Windows 8 tablet

Brad Chacos | May 6, 2013
After months of rumors suggesting that small form factor Windows 8 tablets were on the horizon, Amazon accidentally leaked an 8.1-inch Acer slate before it was officially announced.

Amazon's early leak of the Acer tablet gives us an unofficial price barometer. The e-tailer had the Iconia W3 listed at a $379.99 That's more than a dirt-cheap Android tablet, but far from outrageous--basically, it offers the full Windows 8 experience for just $50 more than the cost of the iPad mini.

Not too shabby. We'll undoubtedly hear more about the Acer Iconia W3--and presumably, a multitude of other small-screen Windows slates--in the weeks and months to come.
