Apple has promoted a one size fits all approach with its 9.7in [[artnid:342882|iPad]] and [[artnid:381655|iPad 2]] tablets, but this doesn't mean you aren't left with other choices.
For many users, the iPad's 9.7in screen makes it too large — some consumers would feel more comfortable using a smaller tablet with a 7in screen. This means that it can easily slip into a handbag, or suit jacket pocket.
[[artnid:367327|Samsung's Galaxy Tab]] kick-started the 7in tablet market, but a host of devices have followed including the [[artnid:372833|BlackBerry PlayBook]] and the [[artnid:401378|Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7]].
6 / 6
The Acer Iconia A100 aims to provide all the features and benefits of an Android tablet in a compact design focussing on portability. However, despite the Iconia A100's decent performance, it's ultimately crippled by a poor quality display, mediocre battery life and a chunky design. If you're looking for the ideal 7in Android tablet, the Acer Iconia A100 is not it. Keep looking.
