Some of you might be wondering what ever happened to our review of Acer’s new Iconia Tab A700, and rightfully so. We promise we didn’t forget, and we’re definitely not keeping you all on pins and needs for the fun of it. Everyone here at Android Central strives to provide the most fair, balanced, and thorough product reviews possible, and sometimes a speed bump or two along the way is just inevitable.
The A700 review unit we’ve been testing seems to be giving us a bit of a hard time; inconsistent performance, slow-downs, and freeze-ups have rendered our tablet all but unusable (though despite it all, that HD screen still looks great). Before we unfairly write off the A700, we’ve requested a replacement unit to make sure the problems we’ve seen aren’t consistent across the board. Bum units happen sometimes, especially in the technology world, and that’s something to always keep in mind as both a consumer and a reviewer. So sit tight, stay patient and know that we’re hard at work making sure you have all the facts before you plop down $450 on Acer’s latest tablet.
