    Low screen res + crappy UI overlay = pass

      At a resolution of 1024 x 600 that table will sell well at $149!
      Any dollar over that amount makes it compete with better tablets in the $200-250 range.

    If the picture is correct that’s either an ugly widget or a heavily skinned OS. I hope it’s not the latter.

    No Nexus = No Deal. Only Nexus devices get fast updates.
    Besides, the screen resolution is horrible.

    We should get one free for signing a three year contract with the cellular companies.

    Looks like a heavily skinned Version of Jelly bean..

    It might not be as bad as everyone thinks but I’m still siding with the nexus.

    It seems the trade offs start with a lower res screen with 8GB internally but with an expandable SD storage. since alot of people complain about that this could help sway decisions.

  • Mr. Miyagi

    Why would anyone get this over a Nexus 7??

    • Crocography

      Why, simple, HDMI out! This is the only reason I will not buy a Nexus 7.

  • Kevin

    I like the expandable memory slot and HDMI out – lacking on Nexus. Nexus just released a 32GB version – wonder why.

  • Mike

    Hmm, Nexus without expandable storage & HDMI, or Acer with. I wish they would stop torturing me with these decisions.

    the screen resolution isnt that bad. It’s a tablet, you wont be holding it 2 inches from your face. at just under 170 ppi it actually a denser pixel quality than a lot of 10.1 inch tablets such as the note 10.1 and the Tab2 10.1. I do not find those bad at all. Spec wars does not always translate to a meaningful user experience upgrade. Besides, a higher resolution means slower performance. Ill take quick performance over a uselessly high resolution anyday. Keep in mind that a 52″ 1080p hd tv has a ppi number around 42……. just for some perspective.

    Ricky, agree with you 100%.

    I have the a100, fool me once, shame on you, fool me… Fool me once you can’t fool me again! The screen on the a100 was a joke, bad viewing angles and all that jazz. It’s turned me so far away that I won’t deal with acer tabs.

    I also agree with ricky. I got a 59-inch 1080p television and when I stand/sit far away from it, the screen looks quite gorgeous and dazzling. But when I go near it at about an arm’s length I can clearly distinguish the individual pixels on the screen! And my vision is not very good by any means…

    looks good. Love the microSD option. It was a deal-breaker for my on the Nexus. Cloud storage is ridiculous unless you have LTE. Wifi is only good when you have a super fast connection. Most public wifi has crap speeds.

    So it’s more expensive, has a worse screen, skinned Android, future updates are uncertain, and features Acer’s legendary build quality.
