The Acer Iconia Tab A510 is an adequate tablet, but it does little to push ahead of the pack

Summary: The Acer Iconia Tab A510 has excellent battery life, reasonable ergonomics and offers solid performance with only some minor software hiccups. This is a good tablet on the whole but simply being "good" isn't good enough at this price point. The Iconia Tab A510's bland design and average screen means it does little to stand out from the pack, though the excellent battery life is a plus.
Pros: Great battery life, Solid performance, Reasonable ergonomics
Conclusion: The Iconia A510 might have Olympic branding, but it’s not an out-and-out champion. The design is unexciting, the screen is average and it lacks the premium look and feel of the leading Android models or the iPad 3. However, factor in the long battery life and the excellent performance and the A510 is still a great deal. For under £350 you’re getting a tablet that will last for over ten hours and run the most intensive Android games – with 32GB of storage space to boot.
Excerpt: The Acer Iconia Tab A510 was first announced at CES back in January but has now finally arrived to do battle with the likes of the Asus Transformer Pad 300 and the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime at the upper end of the big-screen Android tablet scale. And, due to it packing a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, it could also do battle with Apple and tempt people away from the well-worn iPad path.
Pros: Speedy performance, Packs Ice Cream Sandwich, Great battery life
Cons: Unoriginal design, Bulky build, Mediocre HD display
Excerpt: We had a brief amount of time with the Iconia Tab A510 back in March, before Apple launched the 2012 iPad, reviewed, and it looked like a tempting proposition. Now, though, it's competing in a much tougher market with said new iPad and Android 4 tablets from Asus to contend with. Group test: What's the best tablet?
