Acer Iconia A200: Features and Functionality

The Acer Iconia A200 is a tablet attractive design presented by the manufacturer in January of this year. Very similar to another model of the same family, the Acer ICONIA A500, it differs mainly in the technical specifications as the A200 is slightly lower, on the other hand, is of a device that focuses upon the relationship between quality and price.

Starting from the description of the technical specifications, this tablet is based on a dual-core Nvidia Tegra2 1 GHz with 1 MB cache, a memory of 1 GB RAM technology DDR2 SDRAM, a solid-state disk from 8 or 16 GB and operating system Android 3.2, already updated to version 4.0 Ice Cream.

The first aspect to consider is the design of the Acer Iconia A200 which, although not made of aluminum alloy as the elder brother, is very solid and sturdy, with a practical and easy rear wheel. All this has led to a slight increase in weight but also in significant cost savings, and is aimed at those who want a tablet so interesting, but that does not cost too much.

The connectivity of this tablet is interesting because it lacks practically nothing. There is Wi-Fi to surf the Internet free by connecting to a hot spot in the area, Bluetooth and USB port, allowing you to exchange data with other devices, provided, they are equipped with the same interface.

With regard to the internal capacity, the Acer Iconia A200 is available in two versions, one with 8 GB memory and the other 16 GB. In both cases, you can expand it through microSD cards. The multimedia department sees, then, the presence of a front camera, which allows you to make video calls over Wi-Fi, but strangely no rear camera. Finally, Acer has decided to mount this tablet on its proprietary interface Acer Ring, which has several shortcuts, arranged as a ring, through which you can easily access to your favorite functions.


The Acer Iconia A200 is a tablet dedicated to those who looks out for the first time on this world and does not want to spend too much. The design is sturdy and modern, fairly complete connectivity. The internal memory is not bad and the front camera of good quality. The two major flaws of this tablet are the absence of the rear camera and 3G module.
