More InfoAcer Iconia Tab A510 hands-onAcer Iconia Tab A510 with Tegra 3, Android 4.0 arriving in the US and Canada for $450ASUS Transformer Pad

Long battery life ; Runs Iightly skinned Android 4.0 ; Brisk performance, thanks to Tegra 3

Relatively heavy ; Highly reflective screen ; Acer got rid of the camera flash

The Iconia Tab A510 is an excellent choice if you're in the market a 10-inch tablet offering Tegra 3 horsepower, Android 4.0 and long battery life.

Acer Iconia Tab A510 review

 

Acer has built something of an empire hawking inexpensive wares, and its forays into the tablet market haven't been much different. The Iconia Tab A510 looks strikingly similar to its predecessor,...

Inexpensive, for a 10-inch tablet ; Decent display

Thicker and heavier than the competition ; Mediocre cameras ; Awkward speaker placement can muffle the sound

Want in on Android? You can do better

Acer Iconia Tab A510

 

The Acer Iconia Tab A510 Android tablet doesn't provide enough to compete with Asus, Toshiba, and Samsung tablets at the same price point.

Quad-core processor. Long battery life. USB host mode.

Clunky build. Sometimes a bit unresponsive. Expensive. Android still lacks tablet-oriented apps.

Multimedia and Conclusions The A510 has 32GB of built-in storage as well as a microSD card slot that supports 32GB cards, hidden behind a door on the side. It plays all the usual audio and video formats, including MP3, AAC, WMA, OGG, WAV, WMV, H.264,...

Acer Iconia Tab A510 (32GB review

 

The first quad-core tablet, the Asus Transformer Prime , launched in December 2011, but the adoption rate of quad-core on tablets since then has been disappointingly slow. The new Acer Iconia Tab A510 marks only the third tablet to use a full quad-core...

The Acer Iconia Tab A510 may be the most comfortable tablet I’ve ever held, with a sturdy build and a grip-y texture on its backside. The quad-core tablet delivers fast performance in games, navigation, and Wi-Fi. The expandable storage option and...

The A510 is a bit expensive compared with other tablets and its camera performance is unimpressive. The A510’s LCD screen has narrow viewing angles and tends to wash out color. Also, the screen isn’t as responsive as those of other top-tier tablets....

The Acer Iconia Tab A510 is a well-designed, comfortable tablet that’s a bit too expensive for what it offers versus the competition.

Acer Iconia Tab A510 Review

 

For $449, the Iconia Tab A510 offers impressive performance and graphics power, a compelling suite of apps and nearly 8 hours of battery life. Unfortunately, the A510 is shoehorned between the 32GB ASUS Transformer Pad TF300 , which offers quad-core...

Strong performance and graphics, Ring interface offers helpful shortcuts, Useful bundled apps, Good Dolby audio

A bit bulky, Uninspiring display, Awkward front camera placement, Gets hot when charging

Review Acer Iconia Tab A510 Tablet/MID

 

An attractive proposition. Just in time for the London Olympic Ga

Design feels & looks good; Good build quality; Convincing display; Performance of the components; USB adapter included; Acceptable battery life

Charging only by power supply; Only Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR; Useless software pre-installations; 12 months guarantee; Stereo speakers with bad quality; Case temperature; Energy consumption while idle

Android tablets with the latest hardware and software. These include the Asus Transformer Pad TF300T, the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and the Apple iPad 3.

If you think that you'll never find a suitable 10-inch tablet with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for work or for play, think again. The fact is, there are several such devices available on the market today. However, none are quite like the Acer Iconia...

Acer Iconia Tab A510

 

Lately, it seems like each new Android-based slate we've looked at has performed a little better than the one before it. As the tablet market matures, and the number of devices running Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich, or ICS) on Nvidia's Tegra 3...

Tegra 3 processor ; Latest version of Android (ICS) preinstalled ; Excellent performance ; Well-built

No dedicated USB port

The very latest in tablet operating systems (Android 4.0) and processors (Nvidia's Tegra 3) combine to make the A510 the best-performing slate we've seen to date. It's one of the most attractive tablets available.

[Head-To-Head] ASUS Transformer Prime Vs. Acer Iconia Tab A510

 

I'm not going to call on overall winner here, because I don't think it's fair to name one "better" than the other. Much like with smartphones, the way each individual uses their tablet constitutes which one is the "best" one for them, and both of these...
