Acer Iconia Tab A100


A 7in Android Honeycomb 3.2 tablet for under £300. Should the HTC Flyer fly away home?

Expandable memory ; Handy form factor ; Plenty of power

Poor display ; Mediocre battery life

tablet, but it soundly beats the 600g iPad 2. Plus that autorotate lock comes in super-handy when reading in bed. Or in a hammock in the Bahamas.

Acer Iconia Tab A100 review


Acer has done the decent thing and dropped the price on its budget and compact tablet but is it enough to it stand out from the crowd?

Compact build ; Affordable price ; Dual-core CPU

Battery life ; Storage ; Finger prints

If you need something tiny and light to carry around, and don’t mind the short battery life, the Iconia Tab is a worthy entertainment device.

Acer Iconia A100


Steve Jobs doesn't like 7-inch tablets. Hardly surprising, given that Apple only has one tablet, and it's not 7-inches. But Pocket-lint likes all tablets, especially ones that give the people what they want: choice. Although there's plenty to moan...

Sturdy, runs Honeycomb

Not all that cheap, odd screen, DLNA not good at all

Although there's plenty to moan about with the A100, we did like many things about it. The screen is sharp, even though the viewing angle is outright weird. We love the power of the device, and we think it's got a lot of potential for people who want a...

Acer Iconia Tab A100 review


When you can spend as little as £100 or over £600 on a tablet, deciding how much cash to splash isn't easy. Do you go for a bargain browser or superior slate? Maybe neither, as the Acer Iconia A100 has popped up with a strong to claim the middle...

It feels like it's taken a long time for 7-inch Honeycomb devices to show up. And then, as always, several turn up at once. The Acer Iconia A100 is the

The 7-inch Android 3.2 tablet that's better than the HTC Flyer

Small and compact ; Good e-reader ; Latest Android OS ; Re-sizes smartphone apps

Average screen ; Poor battery ; Boring design

Acer Iconia Tab A100 review


It's light and solidly built (though it looks fairly chunky) and is clad in a patterned grey plastic chassis. Weighing 401g, it's almost identical to the smaller BlackBerry Playbook.

The Iconia Tab A100 makes a very good case for Android Honeycomb on a 7in screen tablet. Performance and responsiveness are impressive, and we had no issues with accurate input despite the smaller screen and icons.We expected smaller also to equal...

Acer Iconia A100 Android tablet review


Apple has adopted a one-size fits all approach with its iPad 2, but there seems to be a demand for smaller, compact tablets. Acer has responded with the Iconia A100, a smaller and lighter version its 10.1in Iconia A500 Android tablet. Unfortunately,...

The Acer Iconia A100 aims to provide all the features and benefits of an Android tablet in a compact design focussing on portability. However, despite the Iconia A100's decent performance, it's ultimately crippled by a poor quality display, mediocre...

Acer Iconia Tab A100 review


Acer's new Iconia Tab A100 is the first 7in tablet we've seen that uses the latest version of Android's tablet OS - we were expecting more by now, but there's been some speculation that Google was having trouble getting Android version 3 and above to...

A fine 7in Android tablet, but you may want to see what Acer's rivals have in store before you buy

Acer Iconia Tablet A100 Review


We had a go on the Acer's Iconia A500 tablet last year which as you can image is a fairly large device due the 10.1" screen. So we were expecting the A100 to be naturally smaller due to its 7" display, but we were not expecting it to be as small as it...
