If there's one thing I don't like about the W4's design is its way-too-small Windows button. I could barely get my -- admittedly large -- fingertips in there.

The Iconia W4 features a microSD card slot, just in case you happen to run out of space.

I didn't get a chance to test out the back camera during my brief time with the device.

Nor the front camera. However, look for some in-depth testing when the tablet is released.
