The previously leaked Acer Iconia W3 has been officially announced by the hardware maker today, which added a stamp of officialdom to internet rumour. The 8.1″ tablet is 11.3mm thick, with a dual-core Intel Atom Z2760 clocked at 1.8GHz inside.

The display runs at 1280 x 800 resolution, with Acer sticking in dual front and rear 2-Megapixel cameras, plus, to help swing it as a legitimate work expense for the self-employed tech enthusiast, the W3 comes pre-loaded with Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013.

The smaller Windows tablet will be ready for launch later this month, with prices starting at around £280 for a model with 32GB of onboard storage and £320 odd for a 64GB machine. Prices are converted from euros, so may vary a little come UK arrival.

Meanwhile, for those who can’t find an “ultrabook” they like in the sea of ultrabooks that are clogging up the aisles of electrical retailers right now, Acer has also announced plans to refresh its S7 and S3 portables to include Intel’s new Haswell chipset range, with the 13.3″ S7 also upgraded to feature a 2560 x 1440 resolution touchscreen display.
