Acer Iconia Tab A200 Review

On January 21, 2012, in Acer tablet, Tablet Review, by Indra Vladvamp

The Acer Iconia Tab A200 was announced earlier this month, and while we expected it to be released last January 15, it is just now hitting Best Buy stores. When announced, the tablet seemed like just another A500, that its spec is not much different from the A500 but the difference seems to lie on its software. (see specs below)

It comes with a Tegra 2 dual-core processor, Honeycomb OS, 16 GB/8 GB of internal storage, a 10.1-inch (1280×800) display, 1 GB of RAM and a 2 MP front-facing camera. Not to mention the fact that this device comes with a flurry of ports, which is typical of Acer Android tablets (USB, micro USB, 3.5 mm headset jack, proprietary power port and microSD card slot).

The A200 has the same features we saw with the A510, and a bit more. Aside from the virtual command center, Acer has decided to include an HTC Sense-like lock screen. It includes accessible shortcuts that one can activate by dragging the unlock “bubble” to one of the icons.  The tab provides Acer SocialJogger as its social network application which allows user to interact with social networks like Twitter and Facebook. Acer Ring is also featured, which is a shortcut manager which make it easy to acess apps within any apps screen. Screenshot from the Acer Ring interface helps users quickly capture web images, articles, vidoe call images, etc…

What really makes this better than the A500, though, is the customization that Acer has integrated into this bad boy. If you remember, last week during CES we covered the Acer Iconia Tab A510, which was a Tegra 3 tablet with Ice Cream Sandwich. This tablet had a UI overlay that really caught our attention. And whether you like custom manufacturer UIs or not, it actually brought some rather cool functionality.
