  • Pros: Good price and on sale makes this 32G unit 30% cheaper than iPad or Sony S. Good screen and a lot of apps available. Like the virtual buttons at the bottom of screen.
  • Cons: Row of burnt pixels right out of the box. Touch screen is not very responsive when compared to other more expensive tablets. Experienced multiple instances of forced shut down. The orientation lock toggle button is poorly designed because I ripped my n

Works well, but wireless is way touchy.

  • Summary: The tablet is a pretty good system. Like all the others though, it has it's ups and downs. Nice surprise was the OEM Acer case. The screen is really nice and very clear. The games it comes with show nicely on the display. I haven't watched a movie on it yet since it can't play AVI, which is a huge headache. That's all I have currently for electronic movies. I'll have to look for another player app. The wireless is where I seem to have issues.

  • Pros: PROS? well it works as advertised, im pretty happy with battery life, we keep getting more and more apps for honeycomb, touch screen very responsive, keypad very responsive, no problems connecting to wifi at all, no problems connecting to my Droid X for t
  • Cons: It is a little bit heavy, after a few minutes using it you can start feeling that extra weight. Some HD Games like games from Gameloft or GLU will freeze while loading but if you wait enough time it will continue running, some people blame the 3.1 update

  • Pros: Features, Picture Quality, Sleek Appearance
  • Cons: Terribly slow wifi, Video pixelated and slow

good, but it is just not quite ready....

DALLAS M ARTZ, Amazon
30 May 2011
  • Summary: This is a great product, the hardware is solidly constructed, specs are great (albeit identical to all other android tabs). Screen is bold and bright- at least when its not covered with prints. The problem(s) I've had are with the software: honeycomb is a little jittery... I've a had a few system freezes and lots of flickering transitions. The Android folks will work these thing out- just like 2.2 was much less polished than 2.3, but waiting sucks.
