I'm thinking about getting my mom a basic tablet that won't break the bank. She'll be using it only for basic websurfing, facebook (yes, my mom is an avid facebook user - surprisingly more active on the site than me O_O), watching videos and Skype.
With those uses in mind, does the A100 fit the bill? Or are there any other tablets you might suggest in its stead?
I'm looking for a portable slate (less than 10", preferably around 7-8") that is fast enough to playback 1080p mkv videos. Are any of the current Tegra 2 Honeycomb tablets capable of doing that? Codec support is also important (mkv, H.264, AAC, AC3). Any ideas?
The A500 had so much gloss, that there was often a glare which made good viewing angles difficult to get.
Walmart has a deal on the ICONIA Tab A500 and A100 - buy one, and get a gift card. I know the battery life is better on the A500, but I find the smaller screen and stock Honeycomb of the A100 appealing. If you have the A500, how do you feel about the Acer UI on top of Honeycomb? I played around with it in the store and it seems good, but I'd rather hear from you all. The deal ends on the 20th, so your response before then is appreciated :o)
