The Acer Iconia Tab A500

 

We also had a chance to take the Acer Iconia Tab A500 for a quick spin during the Philippine Android Community[2] meetup. So naturally we had to take some video. The 10” tablet was released recently by Acer and should be available now in stores for PHP 21,900. That’s a pretty attractive price for some Honeycomb goodness, even though it’s a WiFi tablet. Nothing wrong with WiFi, but we definitely prefer our gadgets to have 3G capabilities as well.

 

So the Acer Iconia Tab is a 10.1 inch Android tablet, and one of the newfangled ones running on Google’s new version 3.0 Honeycomb OS. It has a 1280×800 resolution screen, 16/32GB onboard memory with SD card expansion, 1Ghz dual-core Tegra processor, WiFi b/g/n, 5MP camera with LED that can shoot 720p video, and a 2MP camera in front. On our hands it’s a little heavy, but that’s because the body is made of brushed aluminum and we kind of like that. It seems like the tablet can sure take a beating, though with the weight it can tire you out if you hold it in awkward angles. Honeycomb runs really spiffy though and we like the display quality – so those are definite plusses. But anyway, have a look at our video checking out the interface with a quick browser test.

Pretty impressive performance on those dual 1Ghz cores, and Honeycomb is always a beauty. Would love to take it for a more serious thorough-testing ride, but maybe we’ll have that chance next time!

 

Here’s a quick YouTube ad from Acer for the device to see more.
