Excerpt: eBay Daily Deals is re-offering the Acer Iconia A100 tablet. Unlike other 7-inch Tegra 2 tablets, like the Dell Streak 7, this tablet has received Android 4.0 officially. An official Android 4.0 update is crucial, as third-party ROM developers have struggled to make the jump from Android 2.0 or 3.0...

Specs wise, it comes with the same 7-inch touchscreen, dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 5-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front camera, HDMI port, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 8GB of built-in storage and a memory card slot.

Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port
Summary: Acer has recently released their newest device in the Android tablet game and that is the Acer Iconia A100 . The Acer Iconia A100 is not only the first 7″ Honeycomb tablet, but the A100 is also the first device to ship with Android 3.2 Honeycomb on board stock.
Pros: Small and compact, Good e-reader, Latest Android OS, Re-sizes smartphone apps
Conclusion: Without a doubt, if this tablet were released even a month ago, we’d totally be all over it in a heartbeat, namely because of its tasty $329.99 pricing. Of course, it’s tastefully competitive on so many levels knowing that we’ve seen previous 7-inch tablets priced at the $400 to $500 range.
Pros: Fast platform performance, Affordable, Decent build quality
Cons: Poor viewing angles with its display, Shoots ugly looking 720p videos, Shorter battery life than others
Summary: Little brother. Acer's tablet family has a new, little member. The Iconia Tab A100 offers you a 7 inch touchscreen and can be taken along everywhere thanks to its compact build. The Honeycomb tablet (Android 3.2) is price-tagged at 299€ in the wifi-only version and 399€ in the wifi + 3G version.
Pros: Mobile and compact 7" tablet, Good battery life, Good price/performance ratio, Silent operation, HDMI, Docking port, The tablet's compact size and the low weight
Cons: Weak display, MicroSD card slot awkwardly accessible, Only 8GB of internal memory, More hard disk capacity and an unlocked, respectively incorporation of a card reader
Summary: The Acer Iconia Tab A100 does have its charms: things like Honeycomb 3.2, a relatively good camera, and a snappy Tegra 2 processor. However, it really still has too many flaws for me to recommend it to the general consumer.
