Acer’s $450 Iconia Tab A510 couples speedy hardware with a beefy battery, but is it enough to slow the competition?
11 May 2012
Summary: The Acer Iconia Tab A510 is a bit dull. It’s (comparatively) heavy, and thick, and isn’t as comfortable to grip as other tablets. The cameras are mediocre (as expected), and the speakers don’t exactly leave much to write home about.
Pros: Inexpensive, for a 10-inch tablet, Decent display
Cons: Thicker and heavier than the competition, Mediocre cameras, Awkward speaker placement can muffle the sound
Summary: For $449, the Iconia Tab A510 offers impressive performance and graphics power, a compelling suite of apps and nearly 8 hours of battery life. Unfortunately, the A510 is shoehorned between the 32GB ASUS Transformer Pad TF300 , which offers quad-core power for $50 less, and the 16GB new iPad , which is $50 more, but offers a much sleeker design, superb screen and a larger selection of apps.
Excerpt: På papiret hører Acer Iconia Tab A510 til i forreste del af deltagerfeltet. Den får en pæn Geekbench-score, og prismæssigt ligger den i den dyre ende. Desværre skuffer Acer på en række punkter og ender som lidt af et fejlskud.
Pros: Kan afspille de fleste videoformater
Cons: For tung, Bliver varm, Elendig lydkvalitet, Problemer med afvikling af video og spil, Ingen 3G
