An Android a day keeps the doctor away....thats how it goes isnt it..??

Not a fan of Apple products at all, so would be keen to have one to show the Ipad bunnies what android can do. Plus it would be great as a work tool for showing clients remote CCTV footage and real time stuff etc etc.

My current rig, a gt540 Android phone may be a bit underpowered but is great for quick, light jobs on the go like tweeting, texting and the odd image. The more muscular Iconia would be the perfect rig for all the other jobs. The boss swaggering around with a Blackberry Playbook makes the geek in me sick. With the Iconia I could show them the light of all the Android goodness.

I don't have any such fancy contraption right now. I've been itching to get a tablet.  I love Android.  I love books. I love convenience. I love technology.  And I think it's absolutely fantastic that someone from Geekzone has donated a SD card.  "That wo/man deserves a beer".

I would love the Acer Iconia. As you can see, my current portable device is getting bit out dated!

As of right now, I'm making a reply from my stone age IBM,
that was made around the Dinosaurs era.
Intel Pentium M Processor 1.29 GHz, with 512MB RAM Yell You can't imagine what it is like trying to run this "thing" on Windows 7!

This tablet would be much more Ideal (particularly the Acer Iconia A500 featuresCool) because 
it is a portable, compact, smart, sleek, fast processing tablet which I saw offered quite a lot of handy-dandy features worth dying.

Hell I hope I get drawn!!!

Thank you :)

Currently have an ipad, no complaints.  Interested to see what sort of USB peripherals an Android tablet can be used with for business purposes.

My iPhone 3GS is ok, but the screen is just too small for lots of stuff I want to do.

The iPad looks ok, but the screen is just a bit too large for lots of stuff I want to do.

Android looks ok, but my budget doesn't extend to getting another device just to see if it works for me.

I'd like to win the Acer tablet, as you can never have too many gadgets.
