Gave my brother my Galaxy Tab - this looks like a good replacement.

A Tablet would be very useful, it would help free up the PC for the kids to use (homework) or the other way round.  As for a photo of our current one, will a picture of a flat stone do?  that's as close as we come to a tablet (stone technology age). 

Even if we could afford one, I am sure the money would go into buying clothes for the kids.

If I don't win this I fear I will forever be lost technologically in a pre-21st century timewarp.

If I do win it, I will walk the streets of Auckland singing it's praises.

It will probably make it onto primetime TV as well, in the hands of much loved Kiwi celebrity.

Interesting how a competition brings so many users to this forum...

They post once then disappear!

Which is why you should pick me because Im a regular reader and contributor to GeekZone, hate anything iApple with a vengence and have been drooling over the Iconia since I first heard about them late last year!!!
I dont have a tablet or even a smartphone just a dell laptop that I bought with my Student Loan(!) nearly 2 1/2 years ago -  My wife has taken the laptop over with all her facebook groups and games So an additional device like this would be awesome!

I don't have any tablet. Not a one. Zip. Zero. Nada. Not a sausage. Bereft of tablets am I. Which means I'd give this one a caring and loving home. I'd take it on holidays, update it's OS so it could grow and learn. It would be by my side always.

here's my 'tablet' its an eten glofiish x610. (what do you mean you've never heard of 'em? they're huuuuge in russia)
it runs winmo 6.5 and is slow and buggy as all hell. it uses a stylus (all broken and gone now) and is not compatible with big pudgy man-hands. Also the camera lens is smashed.
On the plus side it has really good battery-life (though i think that is due to the fact that most of the software doesn't really work)

why would an iconia be good for me? it looks big enough for my fingers to be useful, it's pretty demoralizing have useless fingers.

I NEED THIS TABLET! as per my current setup and workflow below..

Handwritten Notepad with old Canon Pixma All in One Scanner.
Scan to WinXP, rotate PDF, archive or try to import into Evernote hoping it converts my handrwiting.
Never does..

The Iconia A500 tablet would make my life so much easier, plus I could catch up on the final episodes of SGU (I know, have fallen behind) during my lunch break!


my current tablet setup!

I would love one of these tablets as it would give me some serious geek credibility at work!

Here's a picture of my current rig.

Reading through the review, this seems like a real contender.  The USB and HDMI interfaces certainly open it up to broader use than other options in the tablet space.

Form factor looks very appealing.

I can't wait to run one through its paces.

Hmmmm yeah the Acer surely looks interesting.

My current rig is a Notion Ink Adam - a impressive piece of technology as well. Even though I was a bit disappointed to find out the 1024x600 screen isn't quite enough to diplay one page of a (PDF) magazine, scrolling sideways through a page isn't that bad. I'd still prefer to be able to see a full page and it seems the Acer might just have that. Looking forward to being able to compare the Acer with the Adam!

Below the Adam (left) compared with the Motorola Xoom.

I currently have only a galaxy s, the bigger interface of the tablet would greatly help with the useability of the apps i use for work purposes.
