Hi all, I'm after some advice about the Acer A500.

I'm looking for a tablet device that I can use as a business tool. One of the uses would be to take minutes at meetings etc so what I need is an effective speech to text app. I plan to use Documents2Go to handle Word Docs, Excel SS's and ppts.

The other thing I would use it for is presentations so ideally plugging the HDMI port into a standard projector VGA port would be useful. Not sure if  a convertor cable exists for this.

I much prefer the A500 over the iPad thanks to the ease of syncronisation with Windows.

And of course there's all the other things you can do with Android when I'm not working.

Any advice much appreciated.

The Acer Iconia may not be the tablet you're looking for if you're wanting a business tool; Acer removed support for Exchange! It's not difficult to enable, but still.

I think A500 has Exchange supports out of box, you just need to go to add account to add exchange account rather than add that in email.

Acer added the exchange support back in, in a recent 3.0.1 update, however not everyone received that update, i didnt for example,

It will definiaitly be in there for everyone when 3.1 is out in the next couple weeks
