Acer will be giving all of the tablet makers a real run for their money with this introduction. The Iconia Tab A500 is the company's first Android 3.0-based tablet in the U.S. market.
If gaming is more your thing, note that the A500 hosts a 10-point touch display and six-axis motion sensing gyrometer. The A500 also comes with two games pre-loaded at opposite ends of the spectrum: Need for Speed: Shift and Let's Golf.
Even though no one should replace a point-and-shoot camera with a tablet, the A500 does sport a few better ones. The rear camera has a 5-megapixel sensor with autofocus and flash. The 2-megapixel, front-facing camera is the more interesting one and should come in handy for video conferencing and chatting.
Here's a look at some of the other more notable specs:
Available immediately for pre-order exclusively at Best Buy and then online starting April 14, the Iconia Tab A500 will be officially on sale on April 24. Acer also undercuts most other tablet makers with products in the same price and spec range with an MSRP of of $449.99.
So who's buying this one?
