First Look: Acer Iconia Tab A200

1:42 /

The Acer Iconia Tab A200 is a cheap way to get Ice Cream Sandwich on a tablet. Despite some missing features, it's worth its low asking price.

Hey, guys. Erick Franklin here with Ace's follow up to its A500 and A100 Tablet. The (Aclia?) tab, A200 can stand from the pack of nearly weekly android tablet releases and so had to find out people. The A200 has the lowest price yet of any post honey comb 10 inch tablet. It has expandable memory options, a full USB port, a well design and grippy backside which I really appreciated and it's upgradeable to ice cream sandwich. While running Honey Comb, we saw poor WiFi performance but performance greatly improved. We actually did upgrade to the new OS. Unfortunately, there's only one low quality, front facing camera and there's no back camera. There's also no ACMI and Acer Ring, Acer's App and Bookmark HUB. It's slow to start and while it should make lounging apps more efficient, it doesn't. If the A200 was a member of the expendables, it will probably be the Randy (Catore?) character. I don't even remember his name. You probably didn't even notice him in the movie but the point is, it's dull, it's boring with no real special features. At its current price, it's the cheapest way to get ice cream sandwich on a tablet but that's expected to change over the next few months. However, you could live with a couple of missing features. The A200 is the current cheapest, non-contract Android deal out there. If you're interested, check out the full review for more information. Once again, I'm Eric Franklin and this is the Acer Iconic Tab A200
