It's more of a system for organising apps than a real UI addition – you run an app that groups other apps.

Reviews Word on the street for the Acer Iconia Tab A110


6.3
Flip it over, and you'll find a 5-megapixel camera on the back with an integrated LED flash.

6.9
I'd wish for a sensor like the 41-megapixel shooter inside the Nokia 808 PureView, but no matter the prowess of the camera I can't imagine taking a lot of important pictures with a tablet.

6.0
The Acer Iconia Tab A100 isn't exactly rich in first-party apps made by Acer, or in third-party apps.

6.4 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

The larger size of a 10-inch tab such as the Apple iPad 2 is a bit unwieldy for books, so in many ways the 7-inch screen of the Acer Iconia Tab A100 is more suited to book pages.
by TechRadar (Aug, 2011)
The Acer Iconia Tab A100's smaller screen size means the interface might be more cumbersome to use than that on a 10-inch tab.
by TechRadar (Aug, 2011)
A 1080p screen goes a long way, but it's not worth doubling the price tag.
by The Verge (Jun, 2012)

Apps

There are four customizable spaces, and as we've seen with this feature on phones it makes it easy to take a quick picture, or get into your music collection even faster.
by The Verge (Jun, 2012)
Still, apps launch quickly and the Honeycomb interface felt responsive.
by c|net (Sep, 2011)
For music, we tested the MusicA app included with the Acer Iconia Tab A100 and the Google Music app.
by TechRadar (Aug, 2011)

Operating System

We tested several apps made for smartphones, and the overall impression is that Android 3.2 doesn't really make much of a difference.
by TechRadar (Aug, 2011)
No tablet really enhances the Android experience all that much, but Samsung offers the most UI add-ons, which actually seem to work.
by TechRadar (Aug, 2011)
Sure, it's nothing more than an extra home screen system, and doesn't look that great, but at least we're not talking about plain vanilla Android here.
by TechRadar (Aug, 2011)

Operating system

There's rarely anything wrong with an Acer tablet, and everything from build quality to software is generally pretty solid – there's just nothing exciting or game-changing, no obvious reason to buy an Acer over another tablet.
by The Verge (Jun, 2012)
In some ways, the BlackBerry PlayBook is better in a technical sense – at least it does real multitasking – but it has too few apps.
by TechRadar (Aug, 2011)
From a purely aesthetic standpoint, Acer redesigned the standard Home, Back, and multitasking buttons — I don't mind the new icons as much as I just don't understand the need to change them.
by The Verge (Jun, 2012)

Camera

Meant to be used for video chatting or impromptu self-portraits, this camera uses a lower 2-megapixel sensor, but can still be used to record standard-definition video.
by c|net (Sep, 2011)
Fortunately, the 5MP camera does take good photos, and the smaller tablet is easier to grasp without shaking and position for a good shot.
by TechRadar (Aug, 2011)
If you're shooting from the hip, taking that extra second to habitually clean the lens could make or break a great photo.
