Still loving my Acer Iconia A500 tablet

android tablet technology

It’s been nearly 4 months since I bought my Acer Iconia A500 tablet and blogged about it here. Not much has changed, I still think it’s great.

The only bugbears for me have been the WiFi dropping out in my house. The tablet seems to have the weakest radio of all the other WiFi devices in my house.

The only issue to complain about would be the insane rate of fingerprint collection on the screen. I’ve recently bought a Samsung Galaxy S II and my wife has an iPhone, so I have a new appreciation of the benefits of Gorilla glass which seems to resist fingerprints really well.

Apart from that it’s been great. I take it to meetings and take notes, I spend a lot of time browsing, Tweeting and Facebooking via this device. I love the form factor and the ‘always on’ concept – so I hate to admit it, but I’d be happy with an iPad in that regard too.
