If I won the Acer

From Yvette on October 14, 2011 :: 12:32 am

If I won the Acer Tablet, I would use it as a tool to assist me in providing intervention services to the students I have on my caseload.  I know they would definitely get a kick out of having this as a classroom tool.

For My Wife

From Philip Morrill on October 14, 2011 :: 3:01 am

My wife suffered a brain bleed 11 years ago and has some deficits as a result.  One deficit is stroke-induced glaucoma, making reading more difficult for her, especially in lower light.  With the Acer Iconia she would be able to read books electronically, choosing the best font for her.  She would also be able to connect with her facebook and e-mail from her recliner.

Reading Help

From Koneta Morrill on October 14, 2011 :: 3:07 am

I am an avid reader, but due to glaucoma reading is getting more difficult, especially in lower light.  With the Acer Iconica I would be able to read e-books, setting the font for ease of reading.  This would make reading in bed much easier for me and would also give me access to the internet without having to sit at my desk-top computer.

Babyboomer here

From Yvonne on October 14, 2011 :: 5:03 am

Okay, I’ve a small screen phone and a large laptop.  The phone is hard to see even with reading glasses, while the laptop is cumbersome to carry all the time.  I totally see where a tablet could be the perfect solution.  It’s big enough to see, yet small enough to fit in my purse or pocket for on the go, on the spot access to data.

. . . I know one of those Acers must have my name on it.

Okay, I’ve a small screen phone and a huge laptop.  The phone is hard to see, even with reading glasses, while the laptop is quite cumbersome to carry all the time. 

Totally, I see where the Acer tablet is the perfect solution to this dilemma. It’s large enough to see, yet small enough to tuck in my purse or pocket for on-the-spot, on-the-go access to data.

Yup, I know one of those tablet’s is calling my name!

Smartphone vs dumb phone

From Laura on October 14, 2011 :: 9:54 am

I don’t have a smart phone.  I have a dumb one.  It just calls people and in a pinch I can text.
I have learned that it is versatile and fun to use.  That sounds like something I would like a lot.

Minister / Teacher / Gamer

From Hugo De La Rosa on October 14, 2011 :: 11:33 am

I would use it in all three of my professional & leisure capacities smile

As a minister, having something larger than a cell phone but smaller/lighter than my laptop for Scripture references and scheduling would be great.

As a teacher, it would let me carry around all my files, lesson plans, etc. much more easily.

Finally, as both a digital and traditional (pen & paper) gamer, this would allow me to consolidate lots of info and have it with me as needed.

Here’s praying I win! smile

Blessings & Peace,
Hugo

How I would use my new Acer Iconia tablet

From Brad G. on October 14, 2011 :: 11:54 am

First, it would be mine, as my wife is always wanting to use another one we purchased for Mother’s Day.  No more fighting.
I enjoy news websites and keeping up with what’s going on.
I would search for business ideas prospecting as I am in sales so I would go to websites I believe are interesting and helpful.
I would use it as a form of communications that would be a lot easier that my Blackberry.
I would delve further into Techlicios recommendations as I did this morning on your iPad accesories.
I would see if I could Skype and keep up with my family. It is hard to schlepp my heavy laptop all over.
I would take it with me on my dog walks and when I stop for something, pull it out.
Here in Los Angeles Time Warner is introducing in the city their WiFi connection. Taking the Acer on the go will be much simpler.
I will bring it along while my wife is shopping, to make my experience even more enjoyable.
Have I won yet?

Thanks for this opportnity.

All the best,

Brad

Acer Iconia Tab A100

From Leslie Glasper on October 14, 2011 :: 12:08 pm

I am extremely technologically challenged, and have been desperately trying to educate and update myself on new technology!  I have been researching tablets for quite a while, and this Acer Iconia Tab A100 looks like a great fit for my use!  And, yes, I will share it occasionally with my 16 year old daughter and 9 year old son—books, Angry Birds, a plethora of information to be found!!!!

How would you use your new Acer Iconia tablet

From Tom Smith, MD on October 14, 2011 :: 12:17 pm

I travel a lot, as a medical consultant. I could put most needed files on a micro-SD and use the Iconia to replace nearly all of what I do on a laptop when out of town. No more lugging around a notebook charger, computer, briefcase. Plus, it would be handy throughout the day, as I travel from department to department, show clients important data, review reports & files I have prepared for them. Tablets are truly game-changers for people on the go.

I would love to win this! My phone can only do so much and I would love to be able to d/l books and read them on this tablet. Plus it’s android so I wouldn’t have to learn how to navigate around! It is also travel friendly since it’s small!

Keep in touch with family & friends all over the world.
My Acer can take me to all the exotic places I yearn for and if I am lucky enough to actually get there I would book an extra seat for my Acer!

Acer Tablet

From Michelle on October 14, 2011 :: 1:14 pm

I would give it to my husband.  He has been talking about wanting an Acer tablet for months.  It would be really convenient for him to take notes on it at business meetings.  It’s also nice to have something portable, but slighly bigger than a phone to check e-mail, search the internet, and keep our kids occupied when we are having to wait somewhere that they need to be still and quiet.
