Microsoft handing out Acer Iconia Windows 8.1 tablet to Build 2013 attendees

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer today unveiled at the company's Build event that all attendees will be walking away with an Acer Iconia tablet, which we believe to be the Iconia W3. This Windows 8.1 tablet will help developers and those interested in the platform get stuck in with new features on the latest hardware.

Unfortunately, media don't count and won't receive one, so there's no need to feel envious of all the journalists currently at the conference. Be sure to keep up-to-date with today's Build news with our feed.
