SANS - Survey on application security programs

Good to go

Battery life is good, comparable to that of the Motorola Xoom. Continuous video play depleted the battery at about seven hours but Acer says general use would see a full charge last around 10 hours. My real-world experience (lots of Internet, not so many movies) suggested that a recharge every three days was typical.

Verdict

RH Recommended Medal

Acer has produced a fine product with the Iconia Tab A500. Its performance closely matches that of the Motorola Xoom but it is lighter, offers more connectivity and has a working microSD slot to expand the storage capacity. There was no 3G support in the model I tested but I thoroughly enjoyed using it just the same. It is, however, almost as expensive as the Xoom, so those on tighter budgets should consider the 16GB version which costs around £380. ®
