I would love the AcerTab - would increase my geek cred. Currently lugging a very heavy laptop around!

I'm fed up with having screen envy comparing my HTC Touch2 with people using iPad/iPhone/iCan'tAffordOne. 

Have you ever tried watching stuff on a 7cm screen? 

Also I'd love to use this to sky watch!!!  Be glad to stick an Android tongue out at the apple crowd

HTC Touch2

Procrastination eventually pays off.

My tablet is so old it has a stylus :(

Dunno how this image thing should work.  Where is redjungle when you need him?

My current tablet uses stylus such as a chisel and the screen size meant that the 11th Comandment had to be omitted!

I love the Iconia.  I want it more than any other ipad, iphone or ianything.

And I also LOVE free stuff... even if you can afford it I still want it free.

Well see photo below:


This belongs to my wife and is typically hard to get your hands on as she is on it constantly.  I want my own gadget to surf and play.

I would love to have one. My son has autism and our specialist has recommended getting an iPad as autistic children learn better from using highly visual, touchy feely things. Unfortunately I cannot afford remotely afford anything like that without having to bite into my already meagre budget. This would be something that I'm sure would be of great use to us as a family and would help make my sons life easier, education wise. And of course I would be able to have a play on it now and then :-)

This tablet is just perfect for me, since I travel a lot and laptop is too much to carry and the battery of my laptop is soooo weak...

Well the only tablet I have is the one's my doctor perscribes or if you call a old LG phone one then I suppose there's that. Not really sure on whether I am convinced that one is good to have even however a free one would certainly go a long way to convincing me.

4 Goodhelp for my 4 kids when doing homework
5 Help keep kids entertained adn quiet when we go for long out of auckland rides to the country relies!

I'd like one for use of pdfs as roleplaying game references. 

Here's my current option, which is pretty useless for pdfs (it's fine for the one game that I found with an ebook edition).
