Acer Iconia Tab A100 7" Android Honeycomb Tablet Video Review
      08/13/11 07:47 PM

Ten inch Android tablets are everywhere now, with models from Asus, Samsung, Lenovo, Acer and Motorola hitting their stride, but 7" Honeycomb tablets were nowhere to be seen until the Acer Iconia Tab A100. Why? Manufacturers were waiting for Honeycomb 3.2, which added support for additional display sizes as well as pixel-doubling support so Android 2.x apps could run full screen.




Acer's first to market with their A100, and it's decently affordable at $329 for the 8 gig model and $349 for the 16 gig model. That's $100 to $120 less than the least expensive Acer Iconia A500 10.1" tablet. But the 7" version has the same standard specs as its 10" brother: a 1GHHz Nvidia Tegra 2 dual core CPU, a gig of RAM, WiFi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth, a GPS, a front 2 megapixel camera for video chat and a rear 5 megapixel camera with LED flash. The tablet has a micro USB port for file transfer, a microSD card slot for expansion and a micro HDMI port.





The Iconia Tab A100 has the usual 1024 x 600 resolution that's popular on 7" tablets, and it's pleasingly sharp and bright, but viewing angles are very limited. The shape is very long and narrow thanks to the extreme widescreen resolution, though it looks more elongated than other 7" tablets running at the same resolution like the 7" Samsung Galaxy Tab and the BlackBerry PlayBook.




Here's our Acer Iconia Tab A100 7" Android tablet video review, and the full written review will follow next week.
