I love my Iphone for work but for sitting in front of the TV browsing the web you just can't beat a tablet, and unlike an Ipad the Iconia supports Flash!!! Plus my brother got one of these on launch day so the jealousy only increases my gadget lust! (Look at the photo, my dog is COMPLETELY unimpressed by the Iphone!)

I work with under privileged kittens, who have to share a single IDEOS U8150 to do all their web browsing and video watching. As there are several hundred of them this means they get only a few seconds of screen time each before the next kitten has their go. If I won the Acer Iconia then they could be guaranteed a 100% increase in screen time, which would make their miserable little lives that much brighter!

The other problem they have is their stumpy little paws are too fat for pressing the touch screen buttons on the tiny little screen of the IDEOS, so I have to manipulate the device for them, which means I haven't been able to sleep for a couple of years now. Please let me win the tablet as I don't think I can take much more of their incessant mewling much longer without snapping and shouting at them or worse.

 Please help save this kitten from angry shouting

This would be a great replacement for my partner's failing white macbook and might turn her into more of a geek :)

I'm currently using a Nokia 3120 (had to take the battery out to read the model)

Never win anything, worth a try!

There is a real buzz around how reliable this is going to be. Acer 5 yrs ago I wouldn't have touched with a barge poll. January I got myself a little Aspire 4732Z, its actually pretty good. I'm using the aspire as my ebook reader (a tad bit bulky) so have been considering one of the A500's

I currently have a Samsung Galaxy, the screen is great but a tad small for watching videos and general web browsing. The Acer tablet will be a great compliment to the Samsung Galaxy phone Smile

Been looking for something lightweight and usable on the go. I've really only got kit for the desktop, which means nothing light enough to travel with - so I guess you could say I rely on my brain...

Brain Moran!

... it fails me daily

I currently have a Samsung Galaxy which is just fine, but I'd love to use the tablet for a farm dashboard app for all our Arduino data sensors around the farm!
