You may use battery saver or similar programs that can be downloaded from Android Market for free. It will help to keep your battery longer.
Secondly, please use SIM Card 3G to make internet connection. WIFI Connection will drain your battery faster, it is a common knowledge.
You may use messaging service by choosing Message in the menu of programs in the Android.
Battery is 1500 correct, but 2x1500 is the fact.
Well, I have used this tablet for months... the battery is still left after 12 -14 hours with office usage. Using a live wallpaper will drain your battery faster, but not in great percentage.
The minor is only : Official Accessories is rare. But you may find third party accessories suppliers in the Net.
There is a wide of variety tablet in the market now. You can choose one that suitable with your needed. Each tablet has it's own plus and minus, even the famous one.

In terms of the power of the device, I'd say it is a good tablet. I got mine just two days ago and I'd say, I am proud of this machine except its wireless. For some reason it cannot find wireless connections made from laptops while other tablets like the Explay, connect to and finds all available wireless networks. If anybody knows how to help me connect my a101 to my Samsung laptop R540, please, please help me. otherwise, I am certain others are facing a similar challenge. Thanks

I looked at this in JKT just recently called the A101-3G but the staff said it only does sms and not voice calls. How strange is that. It is a good looking device and good price and with USB and HDMI. The battery is Ni-Po so dont know if it is more efficient than Ni-Li. But why no voice calls. Is that just to keep the price down by not being registered for voice calls. It just seems Acer stoped half way when making this. If it had voice calls and full 3G, that is with all the fequencies, then it would be a great device.

Tablet is for personal multimedia access and personal digital assistance. If we talked about phone call, I prefer using classic phone. It's more easy, good quality voice, and battery saver.

Yes, screen is not as good as Ipad2. It's glossy, especially in sunny day. It reflected.
By the way in Indoor is okay. The best view is in a room with little light. By the way, I think it's better to see video at LED TV or Cinema. Anyway, If you can find doft screen protector, your problem with glossy can be minimize.

I have used Iconia 101 for more than one week, it's my tenth days.

I want update about my experience for the battery. I used the tablet for work mostly in my office. I usually start it up around 7am, and recently, I didn't need to recharge it for 12 hours or more later. Of course with light usage like see email, notes.

About battery, it is 1530mAh x 2, so total battery is 3.060mAH!
It less than Galaxy 7.0 Plus with 4.000mAh, but with the price different compared with minor different in facilities, still worth it.
Of course Iconia doesn't have phone calls, Infrared, and less total storage capacity (7.0 Plus can be added with max 64G SD card). Anyway, it's rarely to use so big "phones" to make a call. Infrared is depend on, data transfer now usually using Bluetooth and cable data. Well, infra red will be used if you want to make it as a remote for TV :)

I have bought it yesterday, Iconia Tab 101 3G, the blue one. First, I afraid of the battery performa. But after my first try today, It lasted for more than 9 hours before battery run off to 15%. Well, of course I'm not using it to see Video or full browsing. Only use it for some application, browsing, notes.
Quick application, good price, and handy. About OS, no further comment, it's an Android 3.2 Honeycomb.
