Hello mommies and women on-the-go. We all know that Summer is here and the activities are full-force. We are running, jumping, swimming, dancing, cooking, hosting, cleaning, and more! The list goes on and on for women during the summer, especially for mommies. The job of a mother never ends. These school-free months can be the toughest for busy moms! Intel recognizes how challenging it is to be a busy mother and they have a few tips on how moms can combat typical challenges with the help of technology.
The Acer Iconia A1 is one of the most useful tablets for mommies that are constantly on the run. I have personally tested this tablet and I am super excited about it. I know that choosing the right tablet is difficult because we all have different requirements for a tablet. Also, we want to make sure that the tablet we are choosing is a good deal and will last us a long time. We basically want the best bang for our buck. In the past 6 months I have tried a couple of different tablets that weren’t up to par. Honestly, I had given up on finding a good tablet until I learned about this one. I am so happy to have found one that is just right for me and I have to tell you all about it.
One important aspect I was looking for in a good tablet was the size. My previous tablet was a bit too long. I couldn’t find a good case or accessories for it and it’s odd size made it difficult to travel with. At 7.9 inches, the Acer Iconia A1 seems to the best size for me. It’s large enough to watch movies on and small enough to travel with (comfortably).
I also love the clarity of the screen. At 1024 x 768, I am able to clearly see the details of the games I am playing and movies I am watching. It’s very clear and free of any sort of obstructions. The graphics are smooth, making for a great experience.
The sound is very clear and loud too. The dual speakers make for an enjoyable viewing experience. Whether your child is watching their favorite cartoon movie or you are listening to a song while taking care of the day’s activities, you can expect the sound to be loud without any additional “noise” in the speakers. Being a music major, I am very picky with the sound quality of my devices and this one was quite impressive.
The rear facing camera isn’t clear and the color is off, so that is the only downfall. Don’t expect to take selfies with the little ones because they will not be very clear. The regular camera is actually pretty impressive for a tablet though. It’s clear and the color is nice.
Another impressive feature of the Acer Iconia A1 is the battery life. I can leave my tablet on for days before it dies! I just love knowing that I can carry this with me on my trips and actually depend on it to last me a full day.
I also have to mention that it runs on Android OS, so you can expect it to be easily accessible. There are a ton of apps that are great for a busy mom, a working woman, a rowdy kid, or even a curious cat (as seen in the photo below haha.) I personally prefer an Android OS above any other one for my tablets. Android offers the best accessibility and the best apps for anyone. A lot of the apps are low priced or completely free.
I personally love this tablet. I am very impressed. I’ve heard great things about Acer tablets, but I just wasn’t sure if it would be up to par with the other “big brands”. As I mentioned before, I’ve had horrible experiences with other tablets. I would have never expected a tablet this good to be this low-priced. I wish I had went with Acer all along.
