Wow - I'd absolutely love one of these - the biggest reasons are that it has a much, much larger screen and processing power than my Ideos has!!

I could definitely use an android tablet to test my forthcoming apps on..the sdk emulator just doesnt cut it for some things.

Two uses:

1. I am a kindle user - which is a greatest ebook reader IMHO (other threads please) - so this would not replace it as an ebook reader. What it would replace is the things the kindle doesn't do well - such as read magazines and be a quick reference web browser when you don't go to your desk or power up the laptop.

2. I am also musician and looking for a portable music reference library that can host a range of documents and apps. Again something I had hopes for for the kindle. But displaying music is not its strength. And also running apps is still in early stages of development.

I have no tablet at present but have a ZTE Blade android phone which is awsome but is too small for all the web browsing I try to do at home with the kids and wife taking over the computer in the evening.

I really  need this Tablet - I want to feel like Moses.

Standing on the Mount,  being profound and  lordly.

The wisdom I could impart to the  multitudes.

Hosannah !

Let  it  be  me

Looking at the name of this little tablet reminds me of another computer that I wanted back in the 80's called the Acorn Archimedes A500. Wonderful computer with an great operating system.

Our old Acer TravelMate is facing a re-incarnation and an Acer Iconia Android tablet seems just the new life it needs -  having missed out on The Rapture on Saturday!

I have an Epad ( Zenithink Z180 ) running Android 2.2 and it is a pile of poohs !

Only had it 6 months and the display is munted, battery life is 60 mins max, wireless range is 5 meters and drops out regularly. 
I seldom use it now - it is too much hassle.

Please send me a new Acer Iconia - If I win I will gladly donate my Epad to the Runner-up !

I once spent $200 on a tablet device at an auction in 1995 because I thought a computer that was 100% touchscreen interface was so cool that any possible operating issues or design shortcomings would be outweighed by the sheer, unadulterated sci-fi-ness look of the device. Sadly, that was only one of many examples of optimism out-punching commonsense over the past 20 years that I have been a gadget freak...

No photos, because I didn't have digital cameras back then, and I sold the device to an 8 year old version of myself for $35 at a garage sale 2 years later...
