When shopping for a new tablet, it is always difficult to choose between which manufacture to choose, size and specifications. In the realm of Android tablets there are more than just a handful that you can pick from. With the Acer Iconia Tab 8 priced at $199, its specifications make it a competitor to one of the most popular 7″ tablets the Nexus 7

Screen Size: Acer(8″) | Nexus 7(7.02)

Resolution: Acer(1920×1200) | Nexus 7(1920×1200)

My impressions remain the same as when I first unboxed the Acer. Its very sleek, clean and build quality feels fantastic. The screen is one of the brightest I have seen in the market  and is a well made device. The only downfall I can say about this device is the rear speaker bar. Its not super quiet but at the same time does not surprise me with a great audio quality. Needless to say I personally tend to use this tablet with my headphones plugged in.

Lastly another benefit of the Acer Iconia is the support from Acer. If you ever have any issues or concerns with the tablet their customer support and relations team is spot on and quick to solve any situation to verify that the customer is happy.
