I purchased this Acer Iconia Tab A100-07u08u 3 weeks ago due to the 7 inch form factor.
Reading ebook with the kindle app, and browsing the internet without holding a heavy tab is very nice.
Just comfortable to have on your hands, so light that it feels like you are holding a toy, but it’s a solid device.
I simply wanted a 7 inch tablet mainly for portability purpose, it’s a perfectly sized tablet if you’re on the go alot.

The speakers with Dolby stereo technology sound very good for the small tiny things they really are. I have tried to encode several videos to run on it, and they run flawlessly.
Eventhough the description claims that this tablet has built-in 4G technology, I haven’t tested it yet. But the wifi is incredible powerful, I carry my tablet everywhere at home, in the office, library, hotel or even restaurant, when they have wifi, the tablet immediately spot the signal.
I personally like to check CNN news, and other news site, including Google reader, all done with this tablet with the apps, even browsing websites and checking Facebook or Twitter update. It is way faster and easier to use a tablet than pulling out a laptop for a few minutes of being online..
I have installed some apps to my Acer tablet, for example, my favorite apps are Kindle app, Pinball, Angry Birds, they are all work fine, and apps which are optimized for Android Honeycomb are growing fast in the market.
