Microsoft has all but confirmed that we'll eventually be seeing 7- and 8-inch Windows 8 tablets, and leaked images suggest Acer could be among the first manufacturers out of the gate. Just don't expect to ditch your Surface Pro, since supposed benchmarks from the Iconia W3-810 paint it as a midrange piece of hardware through and through. A 1.8GHz Intel Atom processor will reportedly power the device — depicted in leaked photos with a number of accessories including a keyboard dock. As for other specs (or the resolution of that 8-inch panel), we'll need to wait for Acer to make a proper announcement. Probably one with less lens flare than the teaser the company served up today.
