Your guides
To help you use your Acer tablet, we have designed a set of guides:
First off, the Setup Guide helps you get started with setting up your computer.
The Quick Guide introduces you to the basic features and functions of your new
For more on how your computer can help you to be more productive, please refer to
the Iconia W4 User’s Manual. The Iconia W4 User’s Manual contains useful
information applying to your new computer.
This guide contains detailed information on such subjects as system utilities, data
recovery, expansion options and troubleshooting. In addition it contains warranty
information and the general regulations and safety notices for your tablet.
The User’s Manual can be downloaded from the Acer support website by going to:
Software installation
Your computer will automatically install software and prepare your computer for
use. This may take some time, please do not turn off your computer; wait until the
installation has finished.
You should create recovery backups as soon as you are able. The Acer Recovery

SAR information
RF exposure information (SAR)
This device meets the EU requirements (1999/519/EC) on the limitation of
exposure of the general public to electromagnetic fields by way of health protection.
The limits are part of extensive recommendations for the protection of the general
public. These recommendations have been developed and checked by
independent scientific organizations through regular and thorough evaluations of
scientific studies. To guarantee the safety of all persons, regardless of age and
health, the limits include a significant safety buffer.
Before radio devices can be put in circulation, their agreement with European laws
or limits must be confirmed; only then may the CE symbol be applied.
The unit of measurement for the European Council's recommended limit for mobile
devices is the "Specific Absorption Rate" (SAR). This SAR limit is 2.0 W/kg, averaged
over 10 g of body tissue. It meets the requirements of the International Commission
on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP). The maximum SAR value is
calculated at the highest output level in all frequency bands of the mobile device. The
highest SAR value reported under this standard during product certification for use of
the device at a distance of zero gaps from the body is 1.47 W/kg.
For body worn operation, this device has been tested and meets the ICNIRP
exposure guidelines and was included in the European Standard EN 62311 and EN
62209-2 for use with accessories that contain no metal and that position the
handset a minimum of 1.5 cm from the body. Use of other accessories may not
ensure compliance with ICNIRP exposure guidelines. If you do not use a body worn
accessory and are not holding the device at the ear, position the handset a
minimum of 1.5 cm from your body when the device is switched on.
During use, the actual SAR level is usually much lower than the maximum value,
because the mobile device works in different output levels. It only transmits with as
much output as is required to reach the network. In general the following applies:
The closer you are to a base station, the lower the transmission output of your
mobile device.
IC regulations
FCC RF exposure information (SAR)
This device meets the government's requirements for exposure to radio waves.
This device is designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for
exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications
Commission of the U.S. Government.
The exposure standard for wireless devices employs a unit of measurement known
as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6W/kg.
*Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions accepted by the
FCC with the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested
frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power
level, the actual SAR level of the device while operating can be well below the
maximum value. This is because the device is designed to operate at multiple
power levels so as to use only the poser required to reach the network. In general,
the closer you are to a wireless base station antenna, the lower the power output.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various devices and at
various positions, they all meet the government requirement.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this device with all reported
SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR
This device complies with Industry Canada license-exempt RSS standard(s).
Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) this device may not cause interference, and
(2) this device must accept any interference, including interference that may cause
undesired operation of the device.
Le présent appareil est conforme aux CNR d'Industrie Canada applicables aux
appareils radio exempts de licence. L'exploitation est autorisée aux deux conditions
(1) l'appareil ne doit pas produire de brouillage, et
(2) l'utilisateur de l'appareil doit accepter tout brouillage radioélectrique subi, même
si le brouillage est susceptible d'en compromettre le fonctionnement."
information on this device is on file with the FCC and can be found under the
Display Grant section of after searching on FCC ID for
your device.
This device was tested according to FCC SAR procedure, and was tested directly
contacted with the Body.
The highest measured SAR value of the device is 1.17 W/kg.
