A bigger touchscreen is required for my ageing eyes than what my current iPhone 3G can deliver - even better this is a product with more potential than the closed shop Apple equivalent!  Much easier to lug around than my large laptop.  I am sure I will find other uses for it as well as the business needs I currently am thinking of.

I am using LGP-500 running on android 2.2, its a good phone given I paid only $399 for it. I found the speed is a bit slow when you open a big file, and the screen resolution is not high enough, especially when browsing news website, I have to enlarge a lot to read.

A tablet will definitely resolve these issues because most of the tablets has a faster processor and bigger screen with high resolution, it will be perfect for me as I need to check my emails and read some reports on the go.

Got one of the budget 7" tablets, and it's not much better then a photo frame - am hoping that one of these would be a drastic improvement!

This is my current laptop and I have a Nokia 5800 XpressMusic Symbian smartphone which doesn't quite cut the technological mustard these days. I would love to have the chance to win the Acericonia!

I would love one of these because I have no idea what it really is, or how good it could be..

I currently have an 8 yr old computer and a 12 year old cellphone... We live in an area with no cellphone coverage so it probably wouldn't be used to its full potential... but I'd still love one.. :)

I don't have any tablet at present. Would love one for casual browsing/email etc and to look up music when playing guitar. I have an old DELL laptop with next to no battery life.

I've got a bargain-basement Chinese knockoff tablet with no real name or model number, which I pulled apart with the intention of trying to hack a newer version of Android onto it (it came with 1.6) - but then decided it wasn't worth bothering with because the hardware's so crap.  I've got an Android phone, but I'd really like to try out Honeycomb on a tablet!

Would love to try out a tablet - and haven't tried the android yet... I want to see how it fits between the netbook and a smartphone :)

I do not have a tablet, except for the kitchen stone benchtop which is too heavy and already carved full of recipes. The Acer will be much lighter and will make for a good tool as I enter Masterchef 2012.

At the moment all I have is my ZX Spectrum duct-taped to an old black and white TV, connected to a small inverter running off a car battery..

Not the most portable setup, but it gets the job done - will post pictures soon..

I think the Acer Iconia looks like a very nice bit of kit, and happened to read another review of it in a the latest issue of PC&Tech Authority magazine, which gave it a great rating.

I'd also like one because then I could upgrade my laptop, (which I'd been given), which is an old Toshiba Satellite (with CrunchBang installed, so it's nice and snappy). Apart from my laptop, these are the nearest thing I have to a tablet:

Android 2.3 or Windows Mobile 2003SE

- so pick me!
