Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

“The inclusion of a camera on a tablet is, well absurd”.

I think you’re overlooking the fact that a tablet is an ideal device for video calling using apps ilke Skype. You may be correct that a rear-facing camera isn’t very useful, but a front-facing camera is definitely important. It would be better if they put all the money into the front-facing camera.

I purchased an Acer A500 at Changi Airport on the way home. It cost less than AUD400 I recall. This is my first Android device and I still am not sure whether a tablet is better than a PC netbook (I will certainly take my netbook on my next overseas holiday but not sure about the tablet).

Still the A500 has been very reliable. Upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich with no problems. I have the Kindle app installed and this is a much better e-book reader than a Kindle.

I would recommend an Acer.

Regards,
Peter

Nice and concise review, Daniel. Unfortunately with that atrocious price tag, the tablet is as good as a dud – especially next to the better packaged Transformer series and even the new iPad (actually, especially the iPad). Asus should have been the benchmark that Acer must ‘aspire’ to be (pun intended) to gain even a sliver of success in the tablet space.
