Perhaps the biggest change that Microsoft made to its brand new operating system, Windows 8.1, is to redesign it to work with smaller tablets.
There’s even been some whispering that Microsoft will release its own “mini” version of the Surface tablet.
But so far, the first and only tiny Windows 8 tablet out in the market is Acer’s 8-inch Iconia W3, which went on sale in early June. Amazon has priced the device at $380 (32 GB) or $430 (64 GB).
Microsoft was showing off the device at its Build developers conference in San Francisco this week.
After spending 10 minutes with it, we found it to be fast and functional. Let’s take a quick look.
You can choose a model with 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage, with an additional 32 GB available through a microSD card.
