Dutch tech website Bouweenpc.nl got the chance to go hands-on with the device and detailed how the model has, as rumoured, an improved “wide view angle” (probably IPS) 1280 x 800 resolution display, Windows 8.1 and the new 1.33GHz Atom Z3740 processor.
The tablet will reportedly still come with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.
Acer only launched the Iconia W3 in June but the tablet was slammed for its poor screen, cheap build and weak cameras. Rumors on a successor first came to light in July.
Geared up for those working in construction, transportation, public safety and other types of field work, the Yuma 2 weighs less than three pounds and is said to feature new display technology to make for better readability in direct sunlight.
The specs of the tablet illustrate that this is a tough and powerful device. There is a dual-core 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, a 64GB SSD and a dual battery with an average run time of eight hours.
Cellular connectivity is optional through the 3.75G dual-mode cellular module, while other optional extras include a 128GB SSD and an extended battery set for up to 16 hours of operation.
