mobile technologyAcer Inc. revealed the smallest tablet currently running on Windows 8 (Microsoft Corp’s latest OS.) The new device, an eight-inch Windows 8 tablet computer, will be competing with smaller tablets from Apple Inc. and Google Inc.

Acer’s Iconia W3, which includes a detachable keyboard and high-definition display, was displayed during a news briefing that occurred before the official opening of Computex (Asia’s largest computing trade show).

The list price for Iconia W3 is $379, which includes a preinstalled version of Microsoft Office. So far, the initiation rate of Microsoft’s touch enabled Windows 8 has been reasonably low, partially due to the high-priced devices.

Microsoft recently started offering special discounts to hardware makers on Windows and Office software for small portable PC’s and tablets. Microsoft and their hardware partners are hoping that the decreased prices for the smaller devices will increase demand.

With a market share of 8.1%, Acer is the fourth-largest personal computer maker in the world, according to market researcher IDC, trailing Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo Group, and Dell.
