Acer Iconia Tab A500

PC Magazine
12 December 2011
  • Conclusion: Acer's Honeycomb tablet, the Iconia Tab A500, has similar strengths and weaknesses to its direct competitors, but its $450 price is easier to swallow than some others.
  • Pros: Inexpensive. Zippy Tegra 2 processor. High-res screen. Solid connectivity options with USB, HDMI ports. Good media-specific apps and functions.
  • Cons: Comparatively large and heavy. No 3G or 4G options. Front-facing camera isn't optimally angled. Honeycomb isn't yet a mature app platform.
