It's fast, fluid, feels great, has good battery life, and Acer didn't overload it with custom crapware.

Reviews Word on the street for the Acer Iconia Tab A510


7.5
What's hot: Fast quad core, Android 4.0 ICS pre-loaded, nice display, good wireless, pleasing ergonomics, USB host with cable included.

7.0
The Acer Iconia Tab A510 used a normal LCD and not an IPS panel for its screen technology.

6.6
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.

8.0
Performance is also brilliant, with the Tegra 3 chip purring inside, and breezing through apps, video, music and games without any worries.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

They go neck and neck with the New iPad and its Retina display and they have top CPU and storage specs plus USB host.
by MobileTechReview (Jul, 2012)
The display is truly sharp and lovely to look at, though as with the New iPad's Retina display, you have to look closely to appreciate the improvements that a very high resolution brings.
by MobileTechReview (Jul, 2012)
Details are so crisp and sharp - it's really mind-blowing.
by Android Police (Jul, 2012)

Apps

Grab a Bluetooth mobile keyboard, and you're ready to tackle image transfer from your camera, MS Office documents, movie watching, web browsing and email.
by MobileTechReview (Apr, 2012)
The front 1MP camera is good enough for video chat, and our Skype partners reported we were easy to understand and we looked passably sharp and colorful.
by MobileTechReview (Apr, 2012)
While everything on the A510 is fluid and quick, it really shines when it comes to playing games.
by Android Police (Apr, 2012)

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)
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)
With the A510, Acer includes a number of custom software features that those familiar with previous Acer tablets should recognize.
by c|net (Apr, 2012)

Operating System

Like most Android tablets, the user interface is standard Android without customization.
by MobileTechReview (Apr, 2012)
It's fast (aside from Android's occasional hiccups), more stable than other ICS tablets we've tested so far and it should be reasonably future proof.
by MobileTechReview (Apr, 2012)
It's a hardware setup, with a few cutbacks admittedly, that rivals anything at the top of the Android pile – with the benchmark scores to back that up.
by TechRadar (Jun, 2012)

Battery

Our tablet typically lasts 10 to 11 hours of actual use time on a charge, and that translates into several days on a charge with moderate use.
by MobileTechReview (Apr, 2012)
Our tablet typically lasts 10 to 10.5 hours of actual use time on a charge, and that translates into several days on a charge with moderate use.
