Which 7 inch Android tab is the best? Acer Iconia A100?

I am interested in purchasing a 7 inch tab (not a larger one) but unsure which is best. It would be used primarily for “regular use,” ie., internet mostly, camera, (phone?). Must have:
Android, a camera (front and/or back), WIFI (and/or 3g/4g would be better), phone capability would be GREAT if it is possible, and under $600. I also like the tabs with touch screen “pens” but not necessary.
And finally- If you have one or know about them, what do you think of the 7in. Acer Iconia Tab A100?
-10 pts best.. and fastest icon wink (looking to buy one today)-

To answer your question would require a great deal more information about what is most important to you, preferably in a descending order. Which cellular carrier do you prefer? How performance oriented do you want the tablet to be, for games and HD video playback and such? Which version of Android do you prefer? Android 2.3 and previous will be able to use more apps because it isn’t a “tablet only” Android OS. Android 3.0+ will have better performance for tablets, but less apps to choose from. How much battery life are you looking for?

The Dell Streak 7 seems to have the worst battery life, followed by the Acer A100 which gets roughly 4 and 1/2 hours of video play before full battery discharge. Of the 7 inch tablets the Samsung Galaxy tab seems to have the best battery life, and the 3g version is also capable of making phone calls over Google voice or another VoIP app. I will however point out that the wi-fi only version of the Galaxy tab 7 (Model #: GT-P1010) uses a slower processor and graphics chip than the 3g version, they are NOT the same, something to think about when making a purchasing decision.

The LG G-slate is able to take 3-D pictures thanks to the dual lenses on it’s back, and is available with a plan through T-mobile, and also has the Tegra 2 dual core chip. However, the LG G-slate is an 8.9″ tablet, not quite 7, and not quite 10. The Dell Streak 7 and the Acer A100 also use the Tegra 2 chip, increasing their performance. The LG and Acer run Android 3.0+, the Samsung Galaxy tab 7 and Dell Streak 7 run 2.3 or previous. Viewsonic has a 7″, 3G ready tablet, though I know little about it, and I’m not sure about how lucky you would be getting a carrier to activate it on their network for you, so I can not recommend it.

If I had to pick a “best bang for the buck”, I’d go with the Acer A100. However, this is only if a shorter battery life isn’t a big deal, and I have not seen 1 specifically for cellular carriers yet, though they may be out or will be soon. Otherwise, the Galaxy tab 7 seems to do all you would wish of it, and is available from many different carriers, but it is not cutting edge. Also, some tablets, (including the chinese knock offs from tablet sites like merimobiles.com), have a full sized usb port that will accept a 3g dongle from a cell carrier. This could possibly be a cheaper and easier solution for you.

There are a thousand choices you could make, and 1/10th of those choices could be a solution to your problem, either way I wish you happy tablet hunting.
