Review Acer Iconia Tab A100 Tab


Little brother. Acer's tablet family has a new, little member. Th

Mobile and compact 7" tablet; Good battery life; Good price/performance ratio; Silent operation; HDMI; Docking port

Weak display; MicroSD card slot awkwardly accessible; Only 8GB of internal memory

The glossy 7 inch screen reflects a lot of the surroundings. Sometimes too much and the content can hardly be discerned in unfavorable lighting conditions. The capacitive touchscreen had the odd "dropout" and partly didn't respond like it should. The...

Acer Iconia Tab A100 Review


The Iconia Tab A100 is Acer's follow-up to its first Android Honeycomb tablet, the Iconia Tab A500. At 7 inches and $330, it's quite a bit smaller and cheaper than its 10.1-inch cousin, but no less capable thanks to the tablet's integration of Android...

Runs Android 3.2 ; Powerful specs for a 7-inch tablet ; Great design and feel ; Rear camera has flash ; Cool travel case

Battery life is 4 or 5 hours max ; Screen is too reflective, has limited viewing angle ; Rear camera takes bland pictures

You're going to wish it had a bigger battery, and the screen will bother you a little, but other than that, the A100 is a good 7-inch tablet and a great device to carry along in your purse or bag.

Iconia Tab A100 Review


It is true that Acer only a few months ago brought us one of the first round of Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets In the Iconia Tab A500, a 10-inch tablet with a thin metal backing attached to one of the cheapest prices on the market. What we've got now is...

Acer Iconia Tab A100


The Acer Iconia Tab A100 is the first 7-inch Android tablet to run Honeycomb and packs a lot of punch for a low price.

Acer says that the Iconia Tab A100's 1530 mAh Li-polymer battery should last up to five hours during Internet browsing with Wi-Fi, up to four hours during web-streamed video, and up to 4.5 hours during 720p video playback. While the LAPTOP Battery Test...

Editor's note: As of May 2012, the Acer Iconia tab A100 is upgradable to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). For details on the advantages Android 4.0 offers over Honeycomb, check the Android 4.0 section of the Asus Transformer Prime TF201 review.

The 7-inch Acer Iconia Tab A100 provides a full Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) experience and its price is lower than those of some of the best 7-inch tablets out there. Its HDMI-out, hardware screen lock, and expandable memory options are welcome...

The tablet screen's viewing angle is narrow and the battery drains quickly. Also, you could get a 10-inch tablet for less than $100 more.

The Acer Iconia Tab A100 offers a full Android 4.0 experience on a 7-inch tablet and can now be found at a very affordable price.

Acer Iconia Tab A100 review


It's been nine months -- nine months! -- since Acer first announced it was getting into the tablet game, with a promise of both 7- and 10-inch slates.

First 7-inch tablet running Android 3.2 ; Fast performance ; Relatively inexpensive

Very short battery life ; Polarizing design ; Oversensitive accelerometer

As the first 7-inch tablet running Android 3.2, the A100 is fast and inexpensive, though buyers will have to settle for short endurance and a chintzy design.

Switch the tablet on and you'll see a 1024-by-600 touch-screen LCD of average brightness. At its Automatic Brightness setting it's noticeably dim and the screen is too reflective, but pump up the brightness and it looks great. The stereo speakers on...

Works well with many Android apps. Great multimedia features

Short battery life. Bloatware. A bit chintzy-looking

The Acer Iconia Tab A100 works well with more of Android's 200,000 apps than other tablets do; we just wish we could play with it longer on a single charge.

Acer ICONIA TAB A100 Review


Shopping around for a tablet, we've been led to believe that the $500 price point is considered to be the safe level for most tablets, even for some of the smaller 7-inchers out there, but as we continue to see fierce competition, it's naturally...

For those who like small things.

Comfortable to hold, very portable, ICS 4.0 update coming soon

Low battery life, small viewing angles

The overall user experience remains the same while using Honeycomb as any other dual-core 1GHz tablet, that is to say that it’s fairly quick. However, don’t expect smooth transitions and snappy playback like iPad 2. Most likely the optimizations...

If you're looking for the most bang for your buck, reviewers say the 7-inch Acer Iconia Tab A100 tablet delivers. It sports the Android 3.2 Honeycomb operating system -- most 7-inch tablets use the older Android 2.x Gingerbread OS -- and its...

Short battery life, charged via adapter, not USB, poor viewing angles, small internal storage capacity in base model
