I could really use an Android tablet to run Google Translate as I am moving to South Korea in a few months to engage in a 12 month teaching contract as part of the English Program in Korea (EPIK).

My current rig is non existant!

I would love it - as embarrassingly I have no Android devices at all!!

So my geek ego would get the necessary CPR to continue on in life.....

I need an Acer because I don't have any tablet and this one would look nice in my lounge.

No tablet yet.  Travel led last year with iTouch but screen too small for airline reservations & the like.  Want 10" tablet and keen on the Acer just not too sure when to jump in.  I like the USB but first impressions are that its a little heavy (or do I just need to get over this).

My work has blocked all internet access due to other peoples Facebook addictions. As a Geekzone lurker this has stopped me visiting my favorite forums (Off Topic, ICT and Android forums) during my 12 hour shifts. I only live 0.5 km away from work in a direct line so I intend to attempt a workaround for my predicament.

As below, I currently have no device capable to communicating half a kilometer over Broadway in Newmarket.

No tablet.

Although I have a 11 inch Vaio laptop, I seem to spend a lot of time in the livingroom staring at my mobile phone: it's just quicker and easier for a lot of tasks. In particular we use a Foobar2000 web interface to control our music server, and the Android app is more straightforward if I want to skip a song.

We bought my son an Android tablet as a combined Christmas / birthday gift and I was very impressed with it when I was setting it up for him. It would make the perfect couch companion.

I'd use the Acer Tablet to watch videos like this so I can learn how everything is made.

I'm a grad-student with a self-funded conference trip to Sweden coming up... Two whole days of flying on five planes just to get there. I can see this being beneficial..!

Would love to add this to my wish list of gadgets to have.

One day I will own a tablet but all the good ones are out of my price range and im not settling for a substandard product.

I need a tablet too! I found Nokia's Symbian OS is pretty limiting and runs out of memory. I'm also allergic to Apples, so I might die if I cant get the Acer.
