With its feature-laden yet practical design, and compact size, the A100 has the goods to deliver a modest-sized alternative to the 10-inch class tablets. Android 3.2 appears to have some rough spots, though. quote

Acer simply isn't doing a good enough job of convincing mainstream shoppers that the latest version of Honeycomb on a 7-inch tablet offers a better user experience than an iPad.

The Acer Iconia Tab A100 offers a full Honeycomb experience on a 7-inch tablet, but the fact that a larger Honeycomb tablet is less than $100 away sours the deal.

This tablet is not the coolest tablet in the NVIDIA Tegra 2 toting family, but it will be rated higher in the hearts of many than its predecessor, the larger A500. This device feels solid and it feels like it’s ready to take on the market.

We like the A100 for an express purpose: greater mobility and book reading. For most tasks, a 10-inch tablet is a wiser bet.

There are some gadgets that transcend their shortcomings to become objects of deep affection. For me the Iconia A100 is among them. For its generation, the CPU, GPU, and RAM are top-class. I LOVE the size. The screen is good. I've never had a problem with the viewing angle, and the resolution is...

Gizmodo gave this thing 2 out of 5 stars...a bit harsh in my mind, because I'm generally quite pleased with this device. They remarked on screen glare, which I've yet to experience at all. In fact, the models that ship to Canada all come with Chapters/Indigo's Kobo store preinstalled, and having...
