Acer Iconia Tab A510 review

An affordable entry to the high-end quad-core tablet party, but lacking in any stand-out features

Hitting the web is obviously going to be a key aspect of your tablet experience and, luckily, the Acer Iconia Tab A510 doesn't disappoint on this front.

The standard Android browser is on board, complete with Flash support (after a quick visit to Google Play to grab the latest version) and Google's app emporium has a wealth of browser alternatives such as Chrome and Dolphin HD, if you're not a fan of the native offering.

However, we saw no reason to stray from the default path.

Although, you may want to change the settings to avoid mobile sites as the A510's 10-inch display handles the real deal without issue – complete with text reflow, inverted rendering and pinch-to-zoom.

Zoomed pages look great and navigation is smooth without a hint of a delay or stutter when scrolling through long articles.

 Acer Iconia Tab A510 Review

The 1GB of RAM seemed to do the job when it came to seamless multi-tab browsing as well, with page refreshes being an infrequent nuisance.

If you're looking to surf on the go then you'll be pleased to know that a 3G version of the A510 (labelled the A511) will be landing as well – although prices have yet to be revealed.

The A510 boasts 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and also has Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity as well.
