Reviews for the Packard Bell Liberty Tab G100
Overall, the usability and performance of the Liberty Tab is on a par with other Android tablets of the Honeycomb era, but two favourable points make this worth considering. Firstly, the price is reasonable – the Liberty Tab comes in at £100 cheaper than its tablet twin, the Acer Iconia A500.

Overall, we enjoyed using the Liberty Tab in the time we had it, and the price is pretty good, too: the 16GB version is reasonably priced at £350 (there’s no 3G option as yet, and the 32GB version wasn’t available at the time of writing), which puts it on a par for value with the Asus Eee Pad Transformer. For our money, having the option of the keyboard dock, a lighter chassis and better-quality IPS display edges things in favour of the Asus, but if you did buy the Packard Bell, we can’t honestly say you’ll be disappointed.

While the Liberty Tab requires a bit of optimisation it’s the least expensive path to owning a Honeycomb-powered device.

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
This weight is typical for small tablets.
Packard Bell: Packard Bell is a subsidiary of Taiwan-based Acer. It is a name used by two different consumer electronics companies. The first was an American radio manufacturer founded in 1926, that later became a defense contractor and manufacturer of other consumer electronics, such as television sets. Teledyne acquired the business in 1978. In 1986, investors bought the name for a newly formed personal computer manufacturer. Originally the company produced discount computers in the US, later computers were produced for the European market. NEC took it over in the late 1990s. Acer acquired it in 2008. In spite of the similarity of their names, there has never been any corporate connection between the original or later Packard Bell and Hewlett Packard, or Bell System. Packard Bell is an international notebook manufacturer. Many years, the company focussed ruggedized laptops.
