I wonder if this will be the 7″ tablet I’ve been looking for? The one that will be headache-free. Unlike the HTC Flyer and the Asus Eee Pad MeMO, it doesn’t have a silly stylus.
Most of the specs looks good:
7 inch touchscreen display
600 x 1024 pixels
1 GHz Tegra Dual core processor
Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) OS
Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR
Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
5 megapixel rear camera with LED flash
2 megapixel front-facing camera
512 MB RAM
8 GB internal memory
microSD card slot
32 GB expandable memory
3.5mm audio jack
5 hours Video playback
1530 mAh battery
I wonder about that “Acer UI,” the 512MB of RAM, and Bluetooth 2.1.
PC Mag wonders about Honeycomb on it: Acer’s 7-Inch Tablet: How Will Honeycomb Adapt? But they also say:
The Iconia Tab A100 is the first 7-inch, 1,024-by-600 tablet that I’ve seen running Honeycomb, and in the few minutes I spent playing with the device it seemed to run smoothly. It’s light and thin, with rounded edges and a smooth finish.
Here is Chippy molesting it at MWC a few months ago:
It will be interesting to see how this is priced. And how that price will compare with the 5″ Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0.
And here are some size comparisons:
Acer Iconia A100: 7.67″ x 4.6″ x 0.51″ – 16.57 oz
NookColor: 8.1″ x 5.0″ x 0.48″ – 15.6 oz
Samsung Galaxy Tab: 7.48″ x 4.74″ x 0.46″ – 12 oz
HTC Flyer: 7.7″ x 4.8″ x 0.52″ – 14.82 oz
Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0: 5.56″ x 3.07″ x 0.46″ – ?? oz
