    Talking Just Purchased The Acer Icona Tab

    I've been back from Best Buy about an hour and half. I went off the deep and purchased the Acer Icona Tab. I'm coming from Notion Ink's Adam. Let me just say after less then hour with device I'm pretty blown away. I was hoping I could hold off for the Toshiba Thrive, but the Acer won me over in the store and at home it proceeded to knock my socks off. First let me say YOU WANT HONEYCOMB. Someone on net wrote a review about not liking the grid like effect on the Acer's screen. After reading the review I worried what the hell was the grid. Well folks it's in the wallpaper. It has nothing to do with the quality of the screen! The quality is just fine. The music player read my Usb drive and is playing as I write this. I am writing from my pc. I have a ton of things to test, but I'll get back latter with a better description. I pad 2 has some serious competition! I did snap a picture and the camera works good and has flash. At last no grainy pics indoors! I'll get back with more thoughts latter.......

    iPad has no competition. It still blows away all Android Tablets combined in sales.

    Glad to hear you like it. I'm trying to get my hands on the Asus transformer but by the time stock is readily available another awesome tablet will be announced.

    [QUOTE=ksidirt;415]iPad has no competition. It still blows away all Android Tablets combined in sales.

    I have to agree I pad is the sales leader and that will continue to be that way for quite awhile. However the competition will be in the area of performance rather then total devices sold and available applications. So many new tabs coming out through the summer with creditable specs that I pads leading share of the market will diminish a bit. I've spent some time with my father in law's Ipad 2 and the Acer Iconia gives the second generation I pad a real run for the money across the board. The Usb port on the device and flash on the camera are steps ahead of the ipad. I've taken pictures with both devices now and Acer makes a better indoor photo. The screen resolution of 1280 x 800 is better then the Pad's 1024x768 as well. Everyone will have their favorite, but having used both the Ipads IOS and now Honeycomb on the Acer I'm very happy to be using the Acer. I'll see how that holds up over time.

    The Acer Iconia Tab was $449.99 at best buy. This was the wifi 16 gb version.

    Good for you Wally. Although the reviews all around are very iffy on the Acer looking forward for your findings.

    just been playing with one in town today... really like the look of it, but thinking of holding out for the Tosh.
    Look forward to reading your thoughts on the Acer.

    i must admit i did strongly consider the acer, as it has some advantages over the asus. you should do a video review and post it here
