Since Packard Bell became a subsidiary company of Acer, it was clear that much of their technology would be closely related and very similar. The Liberty tablet is almost the same as Acer’s Iconia A500. With almost identical specification, the only real difference is in the design and we think the Liberty is the best tablet pc of the two.

The tablet comes in a beautiful red finish with metallic chrome strips around the edges. The corners are more round than the Acer, this makes holding this tablet a much easier task.

The Packard Bell Liberty comes packed with a Dual Core Nvidia Tegra 2, 1GHz processor and 1GB DDR2 RAM. The graphics are powered by a GeForce chip and multiple files can be stored on the 16GB hard drive. A 32GB version is expected to be released soon as well as a 3G version.

The screen on the Liberty is 10.1 inches with 1280×800 resolution. The display itself comes with a glossy finish which looks superb but can sometimes reflect light if being used by more than one person at a time. Views on the screen are nice and bright, while we were very impressed with the look of colours on the display. Movies and images were extremely clear as well, on the same level of its best tablet pc competition.

The tablet comes with an inbuilt 5MP rear camera and a 2MP front facing one for video calls. Other features include USB input, Micro SD and a micro HDMI port allowing you to connect your Packard Bell Liberty to your television. There is also a connector port allowing docks or keyboards to be compatible.

The Packard Bell Liberty comes with the Android Honeycomb 3.0 OS as standard, but there is now an upgrade to 3.2. This helps to make the tablet more stable, decreasing lag and allowing better use of the multi application functionality. The Android market comes with a plethora of apps, so finding the latest games and applications is simple.

Internet usage is extremely fluid and using the Liberty is very responsive in all applications. The inbuilt speakers provide good sound, up there with the best on the market.

Packard Bell claim a 10 hour battery life but in reality this is closer to 8 hours. Nevertheless, movie and video usage doesn’t drain the battery as fast as other tablets.

VERDICT
Overall the Packard Bell Liberty puts in a good effort for the best tablet PC title. The tablet comes with an excellent and unique finish and all the minimums you would expect from a top tablet. There aren’t any major negatives and this is definitely a tablet we would recommend, but it just falls slightly short when in comparison to the Asus Transformer or Samsung Galaxy 10.1.
