  1. The Acer Iconia Tab A100 has quietly surfaced at Walmart, and it will only set you back $350. At the time of writing, there was no listing on Walmart's website,…

    It's actually halfway tempting. That is, if I wasn't holding out for a Kal-El tablet.

    Nvidia Tegra 2 and Honeycomb for $350? Not bad.

    However, with these "budget" tablets I do always question the screen quality. Might have to check it out in person.

    Interesting... I look forward to your review. Please look at the brightness and viewing angles of the display if you could. This is a determining factor for my use.

    You can NEVER check the screen quality from looking at specs. Definitely go and check it out before you buy. Some tablets have the worst viewing angles I've ever seen.
     
  6. I saw one Youtube video about this unit at a show and he said it had very wide viewing angles. the comments i saw were that it seemed a little cheap with the plastic body, but the specs and numerous connectors on it for $350 - i don't see anything that can touch it at that price. Acer may have a serious winner on its hands. .. i guess time will tell.
     
  7. This is a serious tablet. It has all the connections and awesome specs and a very good screen. I've been wanting a 7 inch tablet because i want to be able to actually enjoy my computing anywhere. I am sooooo getting one of these.. I think that if i am strong enough i might be able to hold out for the 3G version but i can't promise anything.
     
  8. For a tablet, comparing hardware specifications is rather irrelevant.

    Other makes and models will just lead to a road of endless frustrations.

    Go for a Apple Ipad - It just works!
     
  9. iPads are fine. But, for some of us they are just too darn large! I think 7" is perfect. I have a CM7 Color Nook and I really like the size and portability. iPad? I may as well take my netbook or my Macbook. Nothing wrong with the android system...yeah its different than the iPad but difference is good. I think both are great...probably will never be a 7" iPad....Apple would prefer selling an iTouch. I do like the flexibility of the android system vs the closed village. But each to his own.
     
  10. I also have Nook Color with CM7, can't be beat. Surprised this Acer only has 512 ram not 1GB. Nook Color has same resolution, same RAM, same flash size, with quality IPS screen, just not the ports, CPU, and cameras. I second the 7" size, better for games that require screen touch and tilting unit at same time.
