Conclusion: 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 tablet for gaming. That said, the A100 is a bit chunky and the design just misses slightly for us.
Pros: Sturdy, runs Honeycomb
Cons: Not all that cheap, odd screen, DLNA not good at all
Acer Iconia A100 review: An uninspiring 7in Honeycomb tablet

10 July 2011
Summary: 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 battery life and a chunky design. If you're looking for the ideal 7in Android tablet, the Acer Iconia A100 is not it. Keep looking.
Pros: Reasonably good performance, HDMI-out port, Charges quickly
Cons: Truly abysmal battery life, Poor quality display, Thick and heavy considering its size
Summary: Aside from its size the Acer Iconia A100 offers little difference to most other Android tablets under the hood. It's powered by the popular dual-core, 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor that’s found on many of its competitors and comes with the almost industry standard 1GB of RAM.
