With Windows-based tablets, the line between tablets and laptops has been dramatically reduced. But it's hard to find affordable Windows 8.1 tablets in the market. To put it simply, Acer isn't the only name in the Windows 8-based tablet game. Dell, HP, Acer and a handful of other companies have played a strong role in promoting Windows tablets.
Acer's latest Windows 8.1 tablet, the Iconia W4 3G, has been launched in India at Rs. 29,999. Not surprisingly, Acer originally launched the Iconia W4 (Wi-Fi only) in India back in December.
Apparently, the Iconia W4 3G is being launched in India ahead of other countries, following the remarkable response received by its predecessor in the region.
