Conclusion: The Acer Iconia A100 might be overshadowed by the A200 that just came out but you should be able to pick it up for around $249.99. That costs about as a Nook Tablet and a little bit more expensive then the Kobo Vox, Pandigital Novels and many other mid-range tablets. Many people end up going for the cheapest options out there but I would caution against many of those devices and pick up the Iconia.
Pros: Solid Audio, Does not stutter on Movies and Audio Playbook, Battery Life is consistent with the average, Google Play Market
Cons: Honeycomb is fairly dated by now, Inability to save apps to Micro SD, Resolution is sub-average, Price is still a bit high
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
Conclusion: 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 screen has a low 75-degree viewing angle and overly reflective covering.
Pros: Runs Android 3.2, Powerful specs for a 7-inch tablet, Great design and feel, Rear camera has flash, Cool travel case
Cons: Battery life is 4 or 5 hours max, Screen is too reflective, has limited viewing angle, Rear camera takes bland pictures
Summary: With the Iconia Tab A100, Acer offers one of the best tablet values on the market. For $349, this device combines snappy dual-core performance with the full Honeycomb experience in a lightweight design. We just wish the A100 lasted longer on a charge.
Pros: Small light design, Runs Android Honeycomb, Dedicated home button, Dolby Mobile Audio, Good software bundle
Summary: 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 ground. Heavenly Honeycomb It's a 7-incher, so that keeps the price down a bit, but otherwise it's generously loaded.
