After the quick launches of new Nokia Lumia devices in recent times, the device revelry continues in this part of the world. The Acer Iconia W4 tablets are available for pre-order on Flipkart, India’s leading online retailer.

Since Microsoft’s flagship Windows device – Surface – never hit the shores here and we still don’t have any clue about the availability of Dell Venue 8 Pro, the Acer Windows 8 tablets are the first ones to arrive in India.

Like most people who picked up an Iconia W3 8-inch tablet, running full Windows 8 on an Intel Atom processor, we loved the concept but recoiled at some of the execution.  We’ve joked in the past that Acer has two design teams: A and B with the former being responsible for the S7 and R7 (gorgeous devices) and the B team overseeing the less-than-pretty W510 and W3.

Forgetting the looks of the W3, which seem to be something designed three years ago, functionally the nimble 8-inch tablet had one glaring flaw: its display. In 2013, IPS displays are all the rage and found in most ultrabooks and laptops, giving users high visibility at various angles and great color saturation. High viewing angles are even more relevant for a device that you hold in your hands and flip around.
