Not surprisingly, the Gmail and standard email apps are appropriately laid out to take advantage of the spacious confines available with the tablet – so organizing emails is a pleasure to handle.

Reviews Word on the street for the Acer Iconia Tab A200


6.3
Tapping the apps shortcut now brings you to a dual apps-and-widgets section, each with its own tab.

7.0
Design: Building upon the design style of the A500 from before, this time around it seems that Acer has finally done justice in the design of the A200 because it simply looks better and feels more sturdy in construction.

7.0
The Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system is Google's best effort yet, and with the new iteration we're seeing Android tablets become smoother and easier to navigate.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

It's no secret that the Acer Iconia Tab A200 is being marketed as a media device, and the screen is suitably sharp, with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution that means you can sit back and enjoy some 1080p visuals on the move.

The A200's screen gets the job done, but I prefer glossy screens on my tablets, thank you very much.
by c|net (Feb, 2012)
Outside the tablet market, this screen performance would be fine, but this is an area where the bar is set extremely high.
by TrustedReviews (Mar, 2012)

Operating System

What's hot: Affordable good quality 10" Android tablet, full size USB port, ergonomic.
by MobileTechReview (Jan, 2012)
Introduction: Having gotten their feet wet in the whole Android Honeycomb tablet scene already, Acer are back for round two with their second take at the whole 10.1-inch tablet form factor.
by PhoneArena (Jan, 2012)
The Acer Iconia Tab A200 is Acer's latest 10.1" Android tablet, and it's very affordable at $349 for the 16 gig model and $329 for the 8 gig version.
by MobileTechReview (Jan, 2012)

Apps

While that won't break any tablet records, it's acceptable and ours manages 7 hours with brightness set at 50% and WiFi on with mixed use that includes web, email, streaming Netfix video for an hour and playing a few YouTube videos.
by MobileTechReview (Jan, 2012)
Acer does a nice job of adding USB driver support to the OS and external storage items like videos and photos appear in Gallery, while music appears in the Music app (if you have a large drive with lots of files this can take a minute or two).
by MobileTechReview (Jan, 2012)
Acer pre-loads Netflix, Adobe Flash, VirusScan, SoundHound, Documents to Go (an MS Office viewer, you can upgrade to get edit and create abilities or buy another Office compatible suite for $20 or so), Evernote, Zinio (a very attractive magazine app) and the full suite of Google apps such as Android Market, Maps, Navigation, YouTube, Google+, Gmail, email and the web browser.
by MobileTechReview (Jan, 2012)

Ports

The tablet is a good gamer, and you can use it with USB game controllers.
by MobileTechReview (Jan, 2012)
The sides are curved for good ergonomics, and ports are located for easy access.
by MobileTechReview (Jan, 2012)
Acer has stripped out the camera, as well as other features such as HDMI connectivity, to keep the costs down.
by TechRadar (Apr, 2012)

Operating system

While the Acer Ring is integrated seamlessly into the OS, its performance lacks the immediacy necessary to make it worth using most of the time.
by c|net (Feb, 2012)
The software was fairly vanilla aside from one clear Acer addition.
by TrustedReviews (Mar, 2012)
Acer is known for including its own unique software touches in its tablets, and the A200 is no exception.
