With my feature rich Nokia 6070 I find it hard to believe anything could surpass it's leading edge technology suite - but am willing to be proved wrongSealed

Hmmm... I would love one of these thingummys if only to annoy my fiends who are Apple-ites.  That said I'd take an iPad if someone gave me one as well.
Keen to see what these can do and have a play - one of my mates raves that he'd not be without his tablet...

I would love a tablet. I hope it lets me read the New Zealand Herald in bed. At present I have only a Blackberry which is slow and small. Or I have to get up and get the paper out of the letterbox which is suboptimal when it's cold and wet.

I would send a photo but you wouldn't want to see me in bed.

We are a fairly high-volume car sales yard and have anything up to 30 vehicles in various stages of being prepared for sale at any one time.

Our current unit is a clipboard with a note sheet in each car!!  Not very hi-tech I know.

We have proprietry web-based stock management software that we developed in house but the interface between workshop and sales is by way of handing the clipboard over!

Having a hand-held Acer would mean we could manage our stock across the yard and in the workshop in real time without having to resort to double-handling and writing everything down! 

Cheers!

I recently purchased a little HP netbook (see below) purely for storage while travelling next month as the iPad is useless for proper digital picture storage.  I'd loooove a tablet like this instead.

Cheers,
G.

Currently have an iMac and iPhone 3GS (for work). iMac really just isn't that portable, and iPhone is way too small for doing much with. Also my wife is trying to convince me we need to buy an iPad, so would be great to win this as I'm sure it is a much more functional device! I'd love to give Android a try too on a capable device.

Now that I've hit my mid-forties I'm finding that even the bigger smartphone screens aren't big enough to cope with my increasingly craptastic eyesight. At my comfortable (for focus) viewing range I'm struggling to make out those tiny words on my Desire. Any closer and, well, see the attached photo to get an idea. Headache-inducing stuff! Gimme a big-screen tablet any day!

I have no tablet - would love an android tablet to use on my commute rather than the laptop which is a bit cumbersome in a crowded train!
Thanks.

I have an Acer AspireOne. Model is 452 which is okay, a bit small sometimes on teh screen and it really seems to be the worst part of a phone and the worst part of a ntoebook in one - too small to use regularly for browsing etc and too big to drag around in my pocket.

An Acer tablet would be just sweet.

Everybody else can stop entering now, I'm in the running.

I have a Samsung galaxy now (7 inch) but would love to see if the bigger screen is a help or hindrance.

Having sold my Nexus One, and having to battle with a Windows Mobile 6.1 work phone (AARRGGHH!) I NEED to get back to the calm, safe, sliding finger world of Android.  A tablet would fill this nicely.

And oh, I jut spend the last 3 months writing a study for my Masters about how "Tablets can replace Laptops" yet need to prove that theory to myself!

(NOTE to all who can be bothered to read these - I will post the study as a blog once it is marked, interesting survey results).
