|Acer Iconia Tab|
|The tablet docks into the included keyboard so no
Bluetooth connection is necessary.
The tablet and keyboard fit neatly together when not docked. Laying the tablet face down the keyboard and sliding the latch connects the two pieces into a netbook-like package. Permanent printed diagrams above the keyboard remind users of the proper way to connect and disconnect the two parts.

Users who are used to an iPad will find the Iconia Tab heavier and not as sleek. The touch screen’s responsiveness depended on the tasks being performed. It does just fine when double tapping to open items and dragging but using miniaturized versions of the icons on the top right corner proved difficult.
The tiny Xs to close out windows or minimizing windows was not always the easiest given the teeny size. Instead of using the touch screen, the keyboard features a belly button style mouse in the middle of B, H, and G keys and right and left mouse buttons on the bottom edge of the computer. If you’re not great at using the belly button to navigate the screen, perhaps a stylus might help but then that’s just an extra cost and object that you need to carry around. I’d rather use a wireless mouse in favor of a stylus for precision purposes and the ability to right and left click.
