And if that's not enough, simply connect to the Windows Store for all the apps you could possibly need.
Enhanced Visual Performance
The Acer Iconia W4 takes visual performance very seriously, with IPS panel delivering crisper colours from extremely wide viewing angles while eliminating the ripple effect when the screen is touched.
Screen technology at build level has been enhanced by removing the air between the touch panel and LCD module through Zero-air-gap direct bonding technology, eliminating unwanted light reflections and delivering razor-sharp images and better readability under direct sunlight.
Take great photos and videos with the Iconia W4. The 2 MP front camera produces 1080p. The 5 MP auto-focus rear camera captures footage at an amazing 60 frames per second, producing ultra-clear, ultra-crisp images.
The Acer Iconia W4 features Microsoft's InstantGo technology, which keeps data, apps, and tiles updated with fresh content by maintaining a network connection and syncing automatically, even when the device is in standby.

I previously owned a 10 inch samsung galaxy ii tablet (worst exprerience with a tablet) then had an ipad retina (great screen), then an Asus Memopad HD (size was ok but it was like holding a big phone). Now this tablet is everything I wanted from a postable device. Size and shape is great (10 inch is too big for me while 7 inch feels a bit small) and even if its a little heavier than other devices and the screen is not like retina its capable of doing more than any other portable device and you can pleasandly spend many time using it. You can do whatever you do on your phone + plenty of things that you can do with a pc + there is microsoft office for free. Attach a usb stick, install almost any software you want, connect a bluetooth keyboard and its more than ok to do some work as well.
Battery is great and can take you through most of the day. Add an sd card and you have plenty of space and here is your media centre to use by its own or connect a pair of speakers (the ones included are great too) and a monitor or a projector through the HDMI port and relax.
Dont know for how long I will keep it but for now its better than any other on the market for me. There are some others, thinner and lighter tablets at the same category like Lenovo, Dell, Asus but they do not have HDMI port which is a big minus.
So far does everything asked of it. A touch slower than I would like, but that's a trade off you have to make for the battery life. It's actually more than fast emough for everyday use.
Screen is good, resolution good enough, streams recorded TV from the server wirelessly once Free VLC installed. For some reason best known to MIcrosoft , their own Media Player will not play TV recorded using a TV card and Media Center. Not played games yet so cannot comment on this.
Office 2013 installed, just have to enter the key. I still think that the built in Mail Client with Win8 is a bit rubbish, but Mozilla Thunderbird to the rescue. A lot of rubbish on the home screen to remove, but overall Win8 sits well on this tablet. Don't forget antivirus!
Don't buy the 32Gb version unless you're pushed for cash, go for the 64Gb as on the 32 there's not a lot of space left after the windows install. This is a full spec PC in tablet form, the atom chip seems easily up to the job.
EDIT: By the way, I forgot to mention - don't expect great sound quality.
Overall I have been very pleased with the device, it lasts several days between charges and it feels quick and responsive when in use. I plugged a micro SD card into the slot and that gives me extra storage space for photos or video files. Aside from that there is a micro USB port plus a micro HDMI port (so you can connect it to an external display if required) and a headphone socket.
I bought mine as an Amazon Warehouse item (so had been used and returned) but could see no damage or faults with the device, so I got a portable computer for about £150. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this item if you were looking for a small Windows computer.
I have added bluetooth keyboard and mouse, and can use these in desktop mode. Although not a fan of the Windows 8 Metro interface, the ease of use on this tablet is beginning to persuade me to use it more often.
I have recommended this tablet to be used at my son's school as an alternative to the overpriced fruit-based products which are normally recommended, especially for IT classes, where the ability to write programs in any language, including Android and Java is paramount.
Would I recommend this tablet?
I have purchased three so far for my family...
