I just bought it yesterday and it was a really good experience !! Definitely loved it ! But i have to agree with you guys, abit downside for the battery life. But overall, an awesome tablet ! :)
Unit is great for reading and watching movies yet battery is a issue, plus i can not get the GPS to work at all. Anyone can resolve that for me, keeps search for single...
I picked i up on Black Friday at Best Buy
I like it works really well for price I never really leave home with it so battery life is a problem for me
keep in mind the battery. Very short battery life. Otherwise, great specs. But don't expect more than 5-6 hours of use in a day.
Liberty, 09 Nov 2011Also, there is 1 GB of RAM, not 512MB, and a Micro HDMI port.Yes, it has GPS and 1 GB RAM, beautiful tablet and has a very good performance, the price is so convenient.
why is it that some sites say that it has GPS, while gsmarena says otherwise? mobiletechreview reviewed its GPS capability, but the website of acer does not mention GPS. are there several models for a100 assuming the same 8GB storage?
The battery mentioned on the box is 1530x2 (3060 in total). Where as, in specifications here it is only 1530. It should be corrected to reflect actual value.
It performs very well, I was able to get 6-7 solid hours of a mix of browsing downloading and watching HD video. So far I am very happy about it... just one side note, it has 1 gb of ram, not 512 MB. Speed-9 display-7, issue with glare in sunlight, but gets better if you put the brightness up, battery-7, camera 8, audio-10
just got mine its doing good touch screen is very responsive and still has no logs. but 3 big issues with this 1st the lcd is very poor not hd looking, 2nd the wifi range is poor just got the wifi to the other room and the wifi signal has lost 50%. and the 3rd important thing is very very poor battery life 4-5 hrs of straight usage just like playing with your psp. but if you can live with that its still a good tab real quick and responsive and the honeycomb experience is really awesome hope it had a long battery to play with it.
red, 09 Sep 2011I would like to ask if theres a possibilities of playing videos/movie in full screen?? bcoz fr... moreYes you can watch movies in full screen. Actually the standard movie player on the A100 has better improved code over the A500. (A100 = 7"; A500 = 10") So playing video on the A100 is alot smoother then the A500.
I would like to ask if theres a possibilities of playing videos/movie in full screen?? bcoz from what i saw in some reviews, on the lower screen the time & home & previous button are still there.....
battery, 01 Sep 2011as it always, battery last only for 30min even on acer laptops i hope you are joking, unless your tablet is defective, there is no way the battery last for only 30 min.
Just got this yesterday and I am surprisingly pleased it is very fast fair quality graphics batt lasts around 4_5 hrs using wifi watching video. I had planned to return it if not pleased but it is a keeper I am a 1st time tablet use.Hope this helps.
