So far I'm just getting used to the changes in the 8.1 update, but for me the improved keyboard is the most impressive. Inputting data with an onscreen keyboard is probably more important with this tablet compared to Android or other small screen devices because of the serious software it is capable of running. The ability to swipe for alternative keystrokes, such as numerical input, has seriously improved the usefulness of productivity apps for me.

Like I said a new version with an improved screen will be out I believe in September, although I love my w3, and if I had my way all tablets would have a digitizer layer although I was kind of surprised that relatively few people actually make much use of the Stylus anyway.It has such a horrid screen and no digitizer....and Bay Trail ships in September. All of these reason combined we had to chop you Acer Iconia W3
And yet MS again with the TEGRA? :It has such a horrid screen and no digitizer....and Bay Trail ships in September. All of these reason combined we had to chop you Acer Iconia W3
The Tech Press wants Microsoft out of the "ARM" Race and only to focus on x86 so they can flog the dead horse of the Wintel Duopoly and how it is fracturing now that Intel supports Android. Remember that the Tech Press uses Notepad or equivalent because most of the Content Engines are based on Wordpress (CNET, ZDNet, PCWorld and all related properties use the same engine) but they spend a few hours with the device and then pass judgment.And yet MS again with the TEGRA? :
