Acer Iconia Tab A100 Wi-Fi Tablet Review

Acer isn’t a king of industrial design, and the Iconia Tab A100 is a bit of a clunker when it comes to looks. That’s OK though; this tablet has a lot of other things going for it. The Iconia Tab A100 is a 7.7-by-4.6-by-0.5-inch (HWD), 13.9-ounce tablet made of shiny plastic with a cheap-looking silver design on its blue-gray back. Both the front and back feel a little greasy, and tend to attract fingerprints. The tablet has a standard 3.5-mm headphone jack, Volume buttons, an Orientation Lock switch, a Power button, and a bunch of ports on the bottom. It charges from a proprietary adapter rather than a standard micro USB connection, but it also has a micro USB port to connect to PCs, and a micro HDMI port to hook the tablet up to an HDTV.
