Acer Iconia Tab A500

 

We take a bite out of the Iconia A500 tablet to see if it tastes like honey.

Nice screen, Honeycomb OS, 32GB internal memory

Uninspiring design

Acer Iconia A500

 

Android works well, decent media performance, a bit cheaper than rivals

But it feels cheaper, too, confusion of apps at times, a tad glitchy

A solid effort, but better build quality and more AV content would help

Acer Iconia Tab A500

 

The Acer Iconia Tab A500 is Acer's 10.1-inch Android tablet - as designated by the “A” in it's product name, unlike the “W” of the W500 tablet that we reviewed previously. At 10.1-inches it faces a number of Honeycomb rivals such as the Asus Eee Pad...

USB, HDMI, working microSD slot, Honeycomb hasn't been too badly interfered with

Acer's software additions are largely dismissible and bring little value, design is rather clunky, size, short power lead, poor video support out of the box

The Acer Iconia Tab A500 offers some features that make it attractive to potential tablet buyers. The range of supported physical connections is the big thing, accepting microSD cards and external USB drives in the tablet itself - the USB will also be...

Acer Iconia Tab A500 review

 

With its shiny glass surface, high resolution screen and aluminium back, it's clear which tablet Acer's Iconia A500 wants to be. But standards are already high for Android tablets, and it's going to need to do more than look the part to impress us....

Acer Iconia Tab A500 review

 

Bulkier Android tablet has muscle and new software tweaks

720p video playback ; More rugged than most ; Bright screen ; Docking station ; USB port

Shorter than average battery life ; Short charger cable ; Wide bezel ; No video rentals ; Some minor crashes

In the contest to replace your laptop – and maybe even your TV – Android 3.0 tablets such as the Motorola Xoom are ganging up on the Apple iPad 2 by sheer quantity. We absolutely thrilled over the Asus Eee Pad Transformer, for example. Now it's time...

A decent tablet, but its weight and average display mean there are better options available at this price.

Acer Iconia Tab A500 Review

 

"The Iconia Tab A500 is Acer's first Android tablet. With dual cameras and HDMI out, it will come in 3G and WiFi versions."

The Iconia Tab A500 should be on sale April 2011.

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...
