I know this. In fact, I bought the game as soon as it was released. While it works on my LG Optimus 2x, it doesn't download the data it needs (it says approx. 50MB) on my A100. It shows the following error where the progress bar (for the download) should be:
"NaN 0MB of 0MB"
If you google for it, it's quite a common problem with MANY games from EA. I personally experienced it with Worms and Hot Pursuit but, in those cases, it was enough to copy the data files from another device (my Optimus 2x) to the A100. This workaround doesn't work with SimCity.
Morover, EA's support is quite hiding itself. I sent them 2 emails (no response) and tried to get in touch with an "EA Game Advisor" as this is the procedure they suggest in order to solve Android-related issues. Enough said, their own procedure doesn't allow you to reach the game advisor (you have to select your game from a drop-down menu and android games don't appear in the list).
Thumbs down for EA. Good games with crappy compatibility and even worse support. Good way to go! Gameloft style!
EDIT: SOLVED, I found on the net the data files from an Iconia TAB A500 and they works applying the procedure I described in the previous post (I noticed on Mobilisim that there are different data files between "smartphone" and "tablet" versions of the game).
