Camera and Multimedia

Don’t look for a rear camera on the Iconia Tab A210, it’s not hidden anywhere - it’s just not on this device. The tablet only features a 2-megapixel front facing camera, good for video conferencing, but little else.

Acer has done some work in video and music playback with home-baked apps under Acer’s clear.fi media suite that sync to the Acer’s own AcerCloud service. Video and music are two of those applications, and both are light, featuring a simple and intuitive interfaces.

Videos appear in a grid with the playback time listed below them and we managed to play all sorts of formats including MKVs and DivX/Xvid encoded movies. For music, a wealth of formats is supported as well starting from the lossy ones like MP3, but also lossless ones like FLAC.

Hook up a flash dongle or a microSD card and dive right into the Files manager application to easily access your documents, music and video on the go. The presence of that full-sized USB port gives a feeling of freedom and empowerment, and those who have a huge movie or music collection will appreciate that.
