I would like this tablet because it would be perfect for sitting on the couch to do things online with my kids.

Hi,

Unfortunately with 4 kids gobbling up our money we have nothing left over to buy a old rig let alone a new one! The Iconia A500 looks a real cracker and, as long as the kids don't try and eat the Honeycomb OS, it would be a real treat to own!

Cheers,

Chris

I'd like to give the acer a go, it looks quite good. Would love to compare it against my iPad.

I need this tablet so I can more efficiently gather research data on radio transmission levels in NZ's central cities, hopefully leading to new technologies in the wireless technology area to create a better internet experience for everyone.

I've been saving some money for iPad 2 but if I could got this one, then that would be great.

Beside, I can definitely use this for work.  I do IT/API support through e-mail so if I had this, I don't have to be tied to my pc all the time!

I would love the Acer Iconia tablet to be able to have a decent screensize for reading Hindi and Panjabi on the go. At the moment, I have an X10 mini pro, too small a screen, and a VERY old Axim PDA. The Iconia would mean I could read my "teach yourself" PDFs and vocab lists on a nice big screen, and watch Hindi movies on the go to improve my vocab and pronunciation. In the interests of promoting cross-cultural understanding with the world's largest democracy, and helping me reconnect with the land of my fathers, I think I deserve the Iconia. Wink

Which tablet do I have now? It's the IWishIHadATablet Mark 1.

Why do I need one? For mum:-) I'm convinced that a tablet would be perfect for her.

Why does it need to run Android? So I can install stuff on it from the web (yep, run tech support ;))

Hope I win this :-)

A Tablet has been on my wishlist for a long time, but unfortunately for me they are definitely on the want list, not the need list (the need list is food, petrol, bills - its a terrible thing to be responsible for the household budget).  A tablet would definitely make my life easier, as well as adding to my contribution to a better planet - I could reduce my printing requirements to almost zilch.  
As much as I like my imac, I just can't curl up on the couch with it.

This would be excellent! I'm a student at the moment, so I'm strapped for cash, but I have an Android 2.2 LG Optimus that I use all the time - I've played around with a friend's iPad thing and I just can't like Apple stuff. Android, on the other hand! Right now I have a laptop, which is all well and good, but it's chunky and heavy and too big to be realistically portable, especially since it's an HP (and if I have it running for more than an hour it shuts down to avoid overheating...) I have to lug around a big cooling pad too. And I'm one of those people who chronically misplace their pens and paper and then forget all about what it was I was going to write down during the hunt for said pens/paper, and Android has some fantastic apps to store/write notes! I'm an enormous study geek and a tablet would come in handy (and much easier to read/write stuff on than my phone)!
