I need to write this review as 99% of the reviews here are from the Vine program and I felt the need to add my non-sponsored two cents. Let me start by saying that I bought this tablet as a present for my wife. I had bought her a Motorola Xoom 10" a few years ago as a Birthday present. That was considered too big and too heavy. I have been using that tablet myself for the past 2 1/2 years. My wife primarily uses email, Facebook, Chrome, and Netflix. She has an iPhone and getting an iPad would have been a great idea had I not been too cheap to fork out that much money. I was looking for a tablet in the 7"- 8" range for about $200 and seen this stylish looking tablet. It a very sharp looking tablet and the perfect size. Most will respond with the fact that it looks like an iPad Mini. It has nice clean lines and a beautiful brushed aluminum back giving it an elegant look. It comes loaded with so many Apps and Widgets that one hardly need to get any more. Setup took all of 10 minutes tops. The screen, while not being the highest in resolutions, certainly looks vibrant to me. I am sure if compared side by side, one could see a difference, but I am not inclined to do so. It is extremely snappy in opening apps and browser windows. We have not tried any games on it, but then she does not game. It has a slot for a micro SD card to add up to 32 Gb of storage. I downloaded Netflix and the TV network apps and they all appear colorful and crisp. The sound is considerably louder and better than the Xoom. It has not dropped the WiFi connection once since initial setup and gets a great signal throughout our house. She loves everything about the tablet and so do I. Are looking for a stylish tablet and are sick of the basic black models out there? Then look no further.Read more ›

Size: 1.6GHz Dual Core/ 1GB/ 768p/ Jelly Bean 4.2 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I must preface the review by stating my time with Android devices has been limited. I have had more iOS devices and spent more time with that platform. I have always respected the Android platform, its functionality, and the value it presents.

Nevertheless, this Acer Iconia A1 with Intel Atom processor has more than impressed me.

The first thing? The speed of the device. The internet browsing, app launching, startup, etc. are all nice and speedy. This is a very important factor when looking at tablets. Surely, the 1GB of RAM helps too. You never feel as though you're waiting around for a page to load or application to launch. It just works and works as it should! My primary iPad is a third generation with retina display, and the speed of this Acer Iconia A1 is much more impressive.

The form factor of the device? A perfect size. Hold it one hand or two hands, the choice is yours. It's comfortable. While a full size iPad I find uncomfortable in bed, I can use this product in bed for at least a few minutes without feeling uncomfortable. Lying back on the couch to read a book? That is enjoyable and comfortable. I can do that a couple hours. Sure, the Iconia A1 weight more than an iPad mini and it isn't quite as sleek, but I am not complaining.

The screen? The size of the screen is fine as again it adds to the comfortable form factor of the device. The screen size and resolution is the same as the original iPad Mini, which sells for approximately one hundred dollars more than this device. The quality of the screen is "ok," for the price point. It is similar to original iPad mini screen in quality, but doesn't pop quite as much. Compared to a retina display on the retina iPad Mini or retina iPad, this screen looks poor!

Size: 1.6GHz Dual Core/ 1GB/ 768p/ Jelly Bean 4.2 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have ready many reviews on tablets, and have found most of them to be why a certain tablet is better than another to the nth degree with all kinds of technical jargon which really just pits one expert against another. As a person who tutors people who are not technologically savvy, I am going to review this tablet from the point of view of someone who has not had one before and whether or not this is a good choice if you want to get one.

I have been told by several business people and those who claim to be very tech savvy that they have gotten rid of their laptops except for occasional spreadsheet work in their offices or at home. Can you get rid of your laptop by getting a tablet like this? Let's take a look.

This tablet is around the size of an ipad mini or a Kindle. The on off switch is on the upper right hand side (with screen facing you) and below it is a rocker switch just below the power switch. There is a space between the two buttons which will allow for elastic bands should you want to get a case for it that has them. That will make it so that the tablet will not be turned on and off by accident. The power button has to be pushed and held for a moment before the unit turns on.

The tablet screen is shiny which can be annoying, but that is the nature of the beast.
The touch sensitivity is excellent- I did not find any problems with response time or lag.
The orientation changing when you turn the screen around is also well set. It works nicely and is not overly sensitive.

To input into the tablet, you have a choice to either type or speak what you want the tablet to do.
