Wow... way overpriced.

For $30 more (and it includes a $25 Googleplay credit) get the google nexus 7 for $199

better in most every aspect..

But I'm sure people are still buying these... sad.

I have the Acer A100 and the A500 and they are both excellent tablets. I can compare those to my Motorola Xoom and my HP touchpad and Kindle Fire. You cant go wrong with the Acer Iconia line. Especially the A100 has the specs of the larger tablets. Most smaller 7" tablets don't have the powerful specs of the A100. And both of Iconia tabs have been updated to ice cream sandwich. Updates came directly from Acer over the Web. Most are still running Honeycomb. That's a good price for a excellent tablet.

I have the A100 as well - I love it. I got mine new at Best Buy a few months ago - they price matched me with Kmart....and yes, it updated to ICS a few weeks ago. Nice having hdmi out and microSD card slot. Solid feel and nice display.

@souka: does the nexus have HDMI ports? I didn't think it did.

Interesting deal - a week ago I think I would have been all over thistablet at this price

The MicroSD slot and the rear facing camera are the two features of the Iconia that I'd be interested in (I can't see myself ever using HDMI out), but the reviews say that the rear-camera on the Iconia sucks.

So it comes down to MicroSD on the Iconia, and the superior screen on the Nexus (1024x600 vs 1280x800).

I think the improved screen is the decider for me, and the slightly better battery life. I'd like the option of additional storage, a rear camera on a 7" makes more sense than it does on a 10", but a decent camera will add cost, and the $200 price point is what makes the Nexus7 interesting. Maybe USB-to-Go Storage and MHL can be fixed in Software on the Nexus7, but I think I'm ready to go for the Nexus7 now.
