acer Iconia Tab A501

I am in the process of reviewing the A501 acer Iconia Tab. The tablet features impressive specifications — boasting NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 mobile processor, a 10″ screen, version 3.0 (Honeycomb) of Google’s Android platform and a range of other features including USB input. Other features include:

  • 32 GB flash memory
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 5 MP rear camera
  • 2MP front camera
  • microSD card slot
  • HDMI output

First impressions are that it is heavy (765g according to the packaging), navigation is not as intuitive as iOS, there appears to be a slight delay and some insensitivity built into the touchscreen, and that some apps for the Android platform are device specific…

So, is it going to challenge the iPad – not if first impressions are anything to go by. More details soon.
