Acer Iconia Tab A100Powerful, compact, easy to carry and even easier to use, the new Acer Iconia Tab A100 is perfect whether you need to work on documents after office hours or simply chill out with your favorite movie or eBook. With a 7” display and a weight of only 0.92 lbs., the Iconia Tab A100 is particularly comfortable to hold with just one hand, and as it’s so compact, it easily slips into your pocket or bag.

Plus, the 5MP rear and 2MP front cameras are just what you need for shooting photos, recording HD videos or video chatting with family from out of town. 

With the Iconia Tab A100, you get all this at a very reasonably priced $329.99 for the 8GB version and $349.99 for 16GB. Or...how about winning one from Techlicious?

Tablet

From Debbie on October 13, 2011 :: 11:53 am

I think this is a great give-away.

I have a new grandson & I could use this to get updates on him right away, because I could carry this nice compact tablet with me everywhere and be in touch with family at all times.

My Husband Recently Started using my Computer

From CLAUDIA CLAPP on October 13, 2011 :: 11:55 am

My Husband has finally decided to get with the times, which is fine….but now I have to fight with him for MY time on the computer.  This would solve this problem.  And when I go out of town as I had to last wk to be with my mom in the hospital/rehab I would be able to take it along with me, instead of having to share with him.  Don’t get me wrong, I like to share, it is just getting to be a hassle for MY computer time!  Thanks for hearing me out!

I could really put this to good use!

From Ada Person on October 13, 2011 :: 12:18 pm

I don’t have anything like this now and have been wanting to try it. As an educator, the benefits from using the Acer tab are too numerous to list. Since my budget can’t handle one right now, I would love to have one!

Animal Rescue Apps

From Marianne on October 13, 2011 :: 12:25 pm

I’m the webmaster for three animal rescue groups. I want to develop android-based apps for them that streamline the pet viewing and adoption/foster application processes.

Another device to test these apps on would be incredibly useful and hopefully help more sad, neglected animals find wonderful homes!

Thanks so much!

What couldn't I do

From Paula on October 13, 2011 :: 1:45 pm

I use my smartphone constantly but having a larger screen on the Acer would make so many apps easier to read and free me from the printer completely. Getting a free one will mean having to buy one for the envious husband - that would be A-OK.

Stress Reliever

From GS on October 13, 2011 :: 1:55 pm

I spend ALL DAY using my laptop for work and never really have time to enjoy it.  By the end of the day I dont want to be near a computer.  A tablet would be the highlight of my day when I’m able to get home, get cozy, and surf the web, stream a movie/TV show, read a book, whatever I please!  A tablet would be a great stress reliever at home, in a cafe, or somewhere warm!

I would give it to my husband and help him download an English program for him to learn English.  Also my granddaughter could use it when grandpa babysits her to practice reading and spelling new words.  I could borrow it from him also to keep in touch with my family when I travel plus let the grandkids watch a movie when they get restless in the car on a long trip.

How I would use the Acer Tablet...

From Frank on October 13, 2011 :: 8:03 pm

I would primarly use it for work. I sell highline vehicles. When on the showroom floor if a client had a question regarding the vehicle, instead of walking the back to my desk I would be able to pull up the information they needed right there and then vs having to walk back to my desk to look up the information. Thus increasing my productivity…..

So Please pick me !!!
