Acer Iconia Tab A100 Review

 

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.

We like the Acer Iconia Tab A100. On the outside and inside it is one of the best overall tablets with a good price and specs that rival any tablet on the market today. Unfortunately, its battery life is pretty bad compared to other tablets, and its...

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.

Acer Iconia One 7

 

The Acer Iconia One 7 tablet will suffice for casual Web browsing and media consumption, but even at this low price, there are better options.

Affordable. Memory card slot for expanding storage. Playful color choices.

Dull display. Mediocre battery life.

Cameras and Conclusions Yes, this thing has two cameras, and no, you don't want to use them. There's a rear-facing, 2-megapixel camera and a 1-megapixel, front-facing camera. They remind me of the camera on my first flip-phone back in 2008—grainy and...

Acer Iconia Tab A100 (Wi-Fi)

 

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.

Works well with many Android apps. Great multimedia features.

Short battery life. Bloatware. A bit chintzy-looking.

One thing falls flat here: The Iconia A100 doesn't have a traditional USB mass storage mode, and it's totally incompatible with Macs. To plug it into a Windows PC, you have to download Acer's clunky Acer Sync software, after which the Tab appears as a...

Acer Iconia Tab A100 review:

 

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.

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...

Review Acer Iconia Dual Screen Tablet

 

Touchbook. The Iconia is the Ferrari in Acer's tablet campaign. We see it rather more as a tank. Weight and size are far from any kind of portable lightness. Nevertheless, the control concept of the foldable tablet works.

Application performance, Control concept, Low waste heat, Virtual keyboard/mouse, The control model with the variable key/touchpad works well. Productivity scenarios, such as image editing or video processing are transferable onto the dual display concept

Narrow viewing angles, No internal cardreader, High weight & bulkiness, Short battery life, Long charge time, No DVD drive, Short manufacturer warranty, A lower display with a higher viewing angle stability – especially in this price range. A...

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...

Review and Deal: Acer Iconia A100 with Android 4.0 – $169 Shipped

 

It's the cheapest tablet in America with an official Android 4.0 upgrade. Is official firmware worth the price? We review the refurbished deal, with an actual refurbished unit.
