Probably a full case. Whats the one like that you got? What material?
Thanks.
 




 I'm supposed to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

hmmm, nothing appears to have been fixed for me. All the bugs are still there, and honeycomb features that should be there are still missinng,

apparently we'll be seeing a big update in June and ACER support have asked me to wait for that before opening any more tickets on their support page.

screen won't turn on if it's plugged into usb
downloading attachments using the built in imap client is painfully slow
when writting an email, the cursor jumps to a different place in the text if the keyboard pops up and obscures the position in the email that you placed the cursor.
unplugging the headphones while the screen is off, leaves the A500 thinking that the headphones are still plugged in.
screen keeps coming on for no reason

as i've mentioned before there are also honeycomb features that Acer have left out.
exchange support, video studio editor, 3d coverflow on the music player

If you still have time to cancel that order i have a code you can use at Playtech to get it for $699.

Members got a newsletter from them last night with discount codes for their birthday sale.

PM me is you need it.
