Acer Iconia Tab A210 Review
3260mAh battery that seems downright humble in comparison to other 10-inch tablets that often come with a 7000mAh or larger capacity battery packs. That lesser battery translates into a shorter longevity of the device. The tablet lasts for nearly six hours of video playback.
The Acer Iconia Tab A210 is an affordable 10-inch tablet, carrying a price of $350. It has one key advantage that will appeal not just to geeks, but all users - a full-sized USB 2.0 port that allows you to hook up a flash drive, a keyboard or a mouse. Practical and versatile.
Still, technology moves at a very quick pace. Right now, the 16GB Nexus 10 is an alluring alternative that launched a few months ago at $400 and offers one of the best screens out there, but also a thin elegant body and double the internal storage. If you are on a tight budget, the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is another viable alternative. It costs much less and offers a drastically better screen and again double the memory. The Fire HD though runs on Amazon's heavily skinned and limited version of Android.
As much as we like the USB port it is not really enough to justify for all other shortcomings of the device. It is bulky, and the screen is mediocre at best. At this point in time, sadly, we feel there are much better deals out there than the Iconia Tab A210.
