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 review

 

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.

Sturdy, runs Honeycomb

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

A reasonable effort, but it faces growing opposition. The screen isn't the best we've seen and the same is true of the design. If you can get it for a good price then it's worth a look, but be sure to check out what Acer's rivals are doing too

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

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.

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...

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'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 Tab A100 review

 

The 7-inch Acer Iconia A100 will suit those seeking a fully featured tablet running Android Honeycomb. It doesn't have the premium feel of some other tablets, but it comes with a more wallet-friendly price tag.

Runs Android Honeycomb ; Portable size ; Decent specs ; Responsive touchscreen

Unimpressive screen resolution ; Android software may be confusing to new users ; 7-inch screen won't appeal to all

The Acer Iconia Tab A100 offers some worthwhile treats for those looking to take their first tentative steps into the world of tablets. It's portable and powerful, both in terms of its hardware and software. Just bear in mind that you'll have to spend...

A quality 7-incher with plenty of power – just don't look at the screen from the wrong angle

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 ha

Whatever business you're in, everything is mobile now. That's become especially true in recent years for the world's leading PC and laptop manufacturers, who've slowly cottoned on to the fact that they can't let the likes of Apple hoover up all of the...

Unless you really must have a medium-sized tablet, the USB syncing issues and dull design still make the iPad your first port of call for usability and the Xoom 2: Media Edition is a tempting rival.
