The $450 Iconia A500 costs less than the iPad and the Android competition, but are the sacrifices worth it?

  • Summary: To be honest, the Iconia Tab A500 exceeded my expectations. After years of reviewing Acer laptops with crappy LCDs and cheap plastic parts, I expected the company to take a similar route with its tablets, but instead, I was impressed with the manufacturing quality (at least for the price), the bright and crisp display, and rather-untouched software experience.
  • Pros: Crisp, bright display, Commendable Dolby sound quality, Costs less than $500
  • Cons: Less battery life than other tablets, Mediocre camera quality, Slightly thicker than other Honeycomb tablets

Acer ICONIA Tab A500 Android Tablet

  • Summary: The Acer Iconia A500 ended up being a bit of a mixed bag and as an overall experience, we were left wanting more. On paper, it appeared as if the A500 can do no wrong what with a Tegra 2 processor under the hood and 1GB of memory. It does deliver though in areas like gaming and HD video playback (minus MKV files support of course). You also get the real Android Market place despite this not having a SIM card which is a bonus.

  • Conclusion: The screen is very responsive and Android 3 is a pleasure to use. Nvidia has added an app store for games, but Acer’s bundled apps are a little uninspiring. SocialJogger brings Facebook and Twitter feeds together, and Photo Browser 3D lets you flick through images using the tablet’s motion sensors. There are several media viewing apps and a DLNA server too. But nothing took our breath away.

  • Summary: Das Tegra 2-Tablet von Acer hat als einziges von uns getesteten Tablets einen herkömmlichen USB-Port, an den beispielsweise USB-Speichersticks angeschlossen werden können. Die Verarbeitung ist hochwertig, wobei  das Gerät deutlich dicker ist, als die Konkurrenz von Samsung oder Asus.
  • Pros: Qualitativer Bildschirm, Sehr gute Ausstattung (USB Anschluss), Solide Verarbeitung
  • Cons: Etwas dick und schwer

Acer Iconia Tab A500

  • Summary: Auf der diesjährigen CES 2012 in Las Vegas präsentierte Acer uns bereits die nächste Generation seiner Iconia getauften Tablet-Serie. Doch bevor die neuen Tegra 3-Modelle erscheinen bleibt das Acer Iconia Tab A500 erst mal Referenz des Hauses und liegt bei uns auf der Testbank. Das 10,1“-Tablet wirkt durch seine schwarze Front und die Aluminium gebürstete Rückseite sehr stabil und hochwertig.
  • Pros: Großes Display, 32 GB Speicher mit Erweiterungsmöglichkeit, Viel Leistung
  • Cons: Android-OS mit Schwächen, Schlechte Kamera, Schlechter Sound
