The Acer Iconia Tab A500 Tablet only adds to Android's presence in the tablet market with its NVidia Tegra2 processor, Honeycomb OS and a 10.1" multi-touch screen for $450. We take a look at its dual camera features, micro SD storage and more, and see if it's worth picking up.
What You Need to Know
It's about .5 lb. heavier than the iPad 2 and a little thicker
At least it has Micro HDMI out, a full-size USB port and Micro SD storage, too?
The touch screen actually feels a little more responsive than we're used to
Android has so many different customization options, and the Acer Iconia Tab A500 even included more widgets, so you can get a lot of real-time info at a glance
Strangely, though, it crashed on us more than other Android tablets
It's got the same specs as the G-Slate and the Motorola XOOM and for the most part, it’s just as fast
When launching apps or games, it might even be a little bit faster than the other tablets
The browser might be a little slower when loading some sites?
Overall, though, it's definitely fast enough to get the job done
The cameras are just as good as other tablets too
The 5 megapixel back camera looks good in normal light, but in low light, the flash makes everything a little too blue
The 2 megapixel front camera works just fine
More tablet apps are being added to the Android market every day, and a lot of them are really good
