The wait is over!! It has been almost a year looking for the “right” Android tablet. First choice was the Asus Transformer, keyboard and extra battery sounded like a cool accessory for a tablet. Unfortunately it sold out in minutes!
Well, tablets are really powerful and full of features nowadays so I started checking for one with specs equivalent to the Transformer and whadya know, there’s one with a little better reviews!
I have had the Acer Iconia A500 for a day now and it`s everything I was looking for. The 10 inch form factor turned out to not be too big like i thought it would. The Android Honeycomb OS is smooth and has good reaction time.
I thought the GPS was fried since I was only getting good info when wifi was connected. Turns out some people are actually getting bad hardware but mine was fine. Downloaded GPS Test and went outside. Found plenty of satellites and Navigation eventually kicked in. Read that the more it is used the faster it will get so we will see.
All in all, I’m totally glad I waited and love this device.
