Acer Iconia Tab A100 now available, gets some reviews.
Acer has just been the first one out of the gate with the release of their Acer Iconia Tab A100. The A100 is the first 7 inch Honeycomb (Android 3.+) tablet to hit the market (though many have been promised). The 7 inch device has a 1024×600 display, 1Ghz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and is available in 8GB and 16GB storage options.
Many will also be happy to hear that the A100 has a a micro HDMI port, microUSB port, and microSD card slot. You can pick up the 8GB version for $329, and the 16GB for $349. As of right now only WiFi versions of the tablet are available.The tablets dimensions are 7.7″x4.6″x0.5″ and it weighs just 0.9 pounds. The battery is rated at about 5 hours of usage, which may deter many of you from picking this baby up.
A few reviews have already been put out. You can find one at Engadget, and one at Gizmodo. Seems they were underwhelmed by the device. Battery life and viewing angles seems to be its weak points. But with a price of $329, I am sure many will pick it up. Especially those who have been waiting for a 7 inch Honeycomb tablet. Check your favorite online retailers to see if they have the Acer Iconia A100 available yet.
