Acer Iconia Tab A200
Review| User review| Specification

The Good: The Acer Iconia Tab A200 is powered by a dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 processor.

The Bad: The volume button and a rotation-lock switch which are on top would have been better situated on the side.

The Bottom Line: If you’re looking for a value-for-money tablet that offers enough functions and firepower, Acer Iconia Tab A200 is worth considering.

Light blue icons for Back, Home and Recent Apps reside on the left side of the bottom system bar while a clock and mini-notifications for WiFi status, battery, downloads and email can be found on the right side. Icons for Google Search and Voice Search are at the top left-hand corner while the Apps page icon occupies the right.

I like the unique Ring interface on A200 which is launched by tapping the green circle icon located right in the middle the system bar.

From this menu, you can open any of the three applications (Gallery, Browser and Settings), or take a Screenshot. A Search icon sits in the centre. On the outer right of the Ring is a gallery of website thumbnails and on the outer left of the Ring, is the sliding volume control.

A200 has a glossy 10.1-inch 1,280 x 800 display which is vivid and bright enough when I watched an episode of The Good Wife and saw the trailer for The Avengers (HD) on YouTube. As for the audio, it's passable but can be better.

The 2.0 megapixel front-facing camera captures photos in 1,600 x 1,200p and video in 720p. The lack of a rear-facing camera makes capturing photos or recording videos cumbersome though using Skype is a breeze with the webcam.

Doing work on A200 is quite easy with the 10.1 inch screen. All you need is to get third-party applications like DocToGo. I even managed to do mind-mapping and share it with my editor using Bubbl.us as the browser supports Flash. With the bigger screen, reading documents, eBooks and eMagazines is very comfortable.

Another good feature is the USB port. I can easily plug in my thumbdrive or hard disk drive and in Gallery, it automatically locates my photos and videos. Opening the DocToGo, I can also access my word, excel and powerpoint files in the hard disk drive. Open Music, and it will locate my mp3s.
