So now we’re currently at the 7th tablet and if you haven’t noticed, there’s a marginal difference to most Android Honeycomb tablets out in the market today. In this tight and stiff competition, it’s quite hard to stand out among the rest. The question is, can the Iconia Tab A500 be iconic enough? As far as the functionality goes, it goes the Asus route of having an available dock to attach onto. Other than that, the Iconia Tab only has minor issue of button placement and apparent bulk. But on the upside, it functions as it should with its dual-core 1 GHz Tegra 2 chipset. In the end, the Iconia Tab didn’t really manage to get iconic per se, but nevertheless, it’s one viable option for your mobile computing needs.
