Acer tablet labelled Iconia W3.

Images of the first eight-inch Windows 8 tablet have today (April 23rd) surfaced online, following Microsoft’s announcement that it would be releasing smaller Windows 8 powered tablets, PCR has reported.

The images, which were first shown on tech site Minimachines, depict an eight-inch Acer tablet labelled as the Iconia W3.

Featuring a dual-core Atom Z2760 processor with hyper-threading, clocked at 1.8GHz, the Iconia W3 is said to come with 2GB of RAM, dual camera, speaker set-up and ports for microUSB and microSDHC.

Whilst the Iconia W3 is yet to be confirmed, PCR has reported that Acer has since asked Minimachines to take down the image, which could be seen as a clear indication of its existence.

The leak follows comments made by Microsoft's soon-to-leave CFO Peter Klein, who said that the company would look to work "closely with OEMs on a new suite of small touch devices powered by Windows."
