Acer Iconia Tab Tablet Review
The bulky Iconia has a good screen, but bad battery life may give some consumers pause.
Like all the other true Android 3 tablets we review, the Acer Iconia Tab has access to the expansive Android Market, home to thousands of applications from tip calculators to games, to limited adaptive learning software. The Android Market still has a ways to go before it catches up to the iTunes App Store, but it's quickly gaining ground in several areas. If you're worried about support for the major streaming services like Netflix, let us allay your fears: the Android Market supports applications dedicated to virtually all of the major services available to iOS users.
Like always, we caution users to be careful with what they decide to put on their tablets, as there are some applications out there that data mine some of your info, so read the permissions popup when you download a new application. Some are innocuous enough, but some of the permissions might make you feel a little uncomfortable to just hand out to certain companies for market research.
