I only have this tiny 4" device to watch movies and browse the web on. It'd be awesome to have the Acer Iconia for when I get bored while the gf is watching TV (which is frequently). I also think it could be handy to use at work for taking notes!

My mum wants a silly iPad and would love to be able to get her using a real tablet!

My current rig is an iPhone ... and thats it.

I've just released Apps for my online community for both Android & Apple - so something for testing/looking at using an Android system would be just ace :)

A tablet would be most handy... It's Win/Win/Win really:

Win #1: A larger screen than my Samsung Galaxy S, so I could browse the interwebbytubes and read eBooks easier...

Win #2: Android OS which apart from being awesome is more or less the same as the Galaxy S, so the learning curve is flattened... and my little homebrewed apps are likely to work on it too!

Win #3: Smaller/Lighter than the laptop, so it would make it more convenient to roam about with...

I really can't see any downside to this at all Wink

I'm about to reach the age of 70 without tablets from my doctor. So it would be splendid to at least have one tablet, and an Acer Iconia A500 would fit the bill nicely.

I would like very much to own an Acer Iconia.  We travel to Uk and Europe quite a bit to see our children and this little machine seems to do everything I could possibly want.  I am no geek (unfortunately) but I love new technology.  Here's hoping.

I'm really wanting an android tablet. 

Have a desire HD at the moment, no laptop. I move around the house a lot, so having something to watch vids and surf the net would be awesome.

We presently have a HP110 netbook.  It is okay for web browsing and playing media but not a lot more.


We are looking at buying a touch screen tablet for the family.  I'd like to get Mr4 (my son) using something educational rather than him sitting watching Thomas the bloody tank engine for hours.  There are apparently some very good early childhood learning apps in the app store.  We'd be bound to find oodles of other uses for it too.

My current tablet is still in the shop, or is it the one pictured in the first post of this thread. i.e. I dont have one, they are a wee bit expensive for me. My current laptop is 3yrs old. Just hope it keeps going.  Cannot say ipad's appeal to me, I dislike itunes.  Well here is hoping for a new tablet.

I currently have an IDEOS U8150.
So as you can imagine it's slow and cumbersome.
But i love Android :D

I'm a student, so a tablet would be very beneficial to me as i can carry it around campus in my backpack and can study wherever I please (compsci major, so most of what i do needs internet access)

Help me Freitasm .........XD
