    The IPS screen is too hard to pass up.

    Acer seems to be the best among the released lot. Doesn't seem to have GPS though. At least couldn't find that written in the specs.

    @sahakar,

    funny, I am pretty sure I read it does have a GPS...isn't it written on the tablet itself (the stickers on the right side)?

    This is what the Adam could be if they are allowed to put Honeycomb on it. I like the guy's review that is spouting everything about hdmi out, USB, and SD slot...saying that there are no other ones like this. Well...the Adam had all of those before the Acer did lol. Yes, its not sold in a mainstream location, but its still out in the world.

    Still, this one and the Asus look tempting...

    *Samsung Galaxy Note 2 - Stock
    *HTC Sensation 4G (running AOKP JB 4.1.2 Initiate Your Swagger 1/2/13)- SOLD
    *Moto Cliq (running CyanogenMod)

    So what are the specs on the Acer Iconia A series? I heard that it has the NvidiaTegra built in also? The Acer company based on my experience is that it ranks in the top five companies next to Alien wear. I think that Acer has come up with some great ideas, but I visited the acer site and this new site and their aren't much info on the Iconia. Looks like a smexii piece of work next to Notion Ink's Adam

    Just got back from bestbuy and the Acer is pretty damn nice. They have it side by side with the xoom. The Acer has a little more substance in the hand then the xoom. SD door is better quality than the xoom, the camera area is very noticeable not a fan of how it looks. Screen is very nice. Great device for $450 usd.

    Its funny how far along Acer has come. I remember when Acer and Packered Bell had the worst reputation and really sold garbage computers in my opinion, but that is also when Gateway 2000 made some kick ass computers.
