Is selling an iPad1-64gb and buying a acer iconia tab a500 worth it
Unsatisfied iPad user
KzVegan, 16 Jun 2011I just got this tablet (Iconia A500) and love everything about it EXCEPT THE AUDIO IS EXTREMEL... moreI would suggest that you use this tablet with a headphone like the Koss Portapro or a Grado headphone and it would really shine as an entertainment tablet.
hi...is it possible to download skype for my acer iconia tab A500..i am just not able to do it..plz help.
I bought this Acer a500 2 weeks ago, firstly I want to thank you for Acer because built for great this product. This Acer a500 is a amazing and save my time. Runing super processed, quick access, running HD game with no Buck.. someone have a problem to install application using android market but it,s not problem to me (just change your DNS server) and a problem can solve.
There is no 3g but you can buy mifi wifi modem chip price from ebay. I love my Acer a500 :-)
Thanks Acer love you
Does anyone have idea on when is A500 going to receive the 3.1 update? I have read on many online news that it's going to receive the update early June. We are already on the 3rd week of June but no update yet.
I just got this tablet (Iconia A500) and love everything about it EXCEPT THE AUDIO IS EXTREMELY WEAK! I have a Galaxy S/Captivate phone and it completely DOMINATES the tablet. Too bad, I was looking forward to using the tablet for all my multimedia enjoyment. A big let down. Samsung is using the same sound processors as are found in IPods (same chip actually made by Samsung!) Be aware, audio on this tablet is very weak (bass especially).
No 3G? Wtf doubt my isp will get it. Unless i can connect a dongle to it
Here's the stuff I like about my A500 tab:
- It might be on the heavy side but it feels solid and comfortable to hold.
- It has scratch resistant Gorilla glass display. Check the registered products in the Corning's gorilla glass website as proof.
- It can read from my 120Gb external HDD (extended FAT32 formatted)without trouble.
- The sound quality is very good.
- Performance is snappy. Didn't experienced any lags.
Here's what I don't like:
- only .3gp and .mp4 video formats supported out of the box.
- plastic material is used for the microSD card cover flap. I hope they used the same material they used in the back casing.
- The speakers tend to get muffled when you place the tablet flat on its back.
- HDMI port is not full-sized, though I bet they could have pulled it off anyway (since they have a full-sized USB 2.0 port on the other side of the tab.
for P21900 16gb acer iconia tab a500 is now available in the philippines but i still waiting for the galaxy tab 8.9..

not sure why this has been getting bad reviews.
it has better specs than the ipad
better camera than ipad
it is a very good tablet, the only downside is that there are not many honeycomb apps out at current, however this will change with time.
cant wait for mine to be delivered!
I got this device 3 days ago up to now all what I can say is :it is AWESOME!
No accessories for it here in Saudi Arabia , tried a USB keyboard working perfect and even a wireless keyboard is working 
Amazing for reading eBooks , browsing the net over WIFI is speedy , touch sensitivity is more than what I expected ! I think it worth it’s price .
a flash USB memory works perfectly and u can browse the files in it , I’ve not tried a joystick yet since it needs a driver .
Still no many apps in the market for the Tablet so I think it is the right time for developers to start working on it.
Someone complained about the price but this device is only $450.00 at local Best Buy, Target, and Amazon. That sure seems like a good price to me for competing with Apple. This device blows the iPad away if considering the extra options it has. People love their iPads and iPhones but they are nowhere near as advanced and capable as Android devices. However, unless someone is very technology savvy they may not notice.
I hope the device gets android update in June .
Had mine for about a week and absolutely love it, its tethers with my desire hd wirelessly so easy which makes surfing the net any where i am so easy, there's no need to jump on another plan and the wi fi really flys, The battery seems to go on forever and the honeycomb O.S is awesome but its way behind I pad in the apps department but time will fix that and with the support of Java and a real working flash player in the dolphin browser app make it so much better than the I pad 2 which my partner has and its soooooooooooooo restricted
