I would love it.. because I have an iPhone4 but the screen is too tiny.. Since I spent so much money on the iPhone4 I can't enjoy buying other gadgets.    I need a bigger screen so I can easily read Geekzone.co.nz from the comfort of the couch, deck or toilet. :)

This is what I currently use to 'organise' myself at work. It does OK, but an Iconia would be so much more useful.

Altho' I'm happy with a jailbroken iPhone... it's an old 3GS.... and I'm not getting any younger (last time I checked), so a larger screen for browsing the web and displaying my photographs on would be great!









Cheers,
Mike

Just replying so I can uncheck the "E-mail me when someone replies to this post" box.. Can't see how to do that without unfollowing every topic.
But when a topic is going to get long, I prefer not to get inbox bombarded.
The "Watch Topic" button should really become an "Unwatch Topic" button once clicked too.

My doctor said to take two tablets and see him in the morning but I think one would do.

My current 'tablet' has great battery life (it last 240 pages on a single refill!)
But has poor integration to the online world though. 
I think the Acer will be loads more fun to use!

This is my current tablet, its a Palm. It is possible to take notes on it, but it is not the best for it. It is pretty interactive and it easily controls many other devices. I just think it would be better with an Acer tablet in it. 

As you can see it looks great next to a picture of the Acer Tablet and it would also compliment my now 5 year old Acer Laptop. 

Would be great to take to uni for taking notes on as well as surfing around the house.

*EDIT* Sorry for all the updates, couldnt get image to work.

I don't have one - But was wanting to save up to buy a Honeycomb Tablet. As I am a Android Developer I am wanting one of these to develop apps for. At the moment I carry around my Toshiba Tecra M9 Laptop which works, but can be heavy, it also looks rather weird when I crank it out on the bus.

Quite simply, this will make my dreams come true. I will be able to do everything from it whilst on the bus, on the toilet, or even at work without the hassles of pulling out a laptop each time, plus also - I will be the envy of my friends with those [products]

Also, since I am a nice guy, if I win this, I will donate my savings I have actually got saved towards one of these (which is about $200 now) towards the Red Cross for Christchurch. They need it more than I do!

As I haven't had any luck tasting the Double Down, I need this to put my mind off it!

If I won, I would use a tablet to take my notes for school. While my current method of taking notes 'works', it isn't going to be too useful when I sit my end of year exams for NCEA L2. A tablet would let me organise my notes & reduce the weight of my school bag.
