Good to go
Battery life is good, comparable to that of the Motorola Xoom. Continuous video play depleted the battery at about seven hours but Acer says general use would see a full charge last around 10 hours. My real-world experience (lots of Internet, not so many movies) suggested that a recharge every three days was typical.

Acer has produced a fine product with the Iconia Tab A500. Its performance closely matches that of the Motorola Xoom but it is lighter, offers more connectivity and has a working microSD slot to expand the storage capacity. There was no 3G support in the model I tested but I thoroughly enjoyed using it just the same. It is, however, almost as expensive as the Xoom, so those on tighter budgets should consider the 16GB version which costs around £380. ®

Acer Iconia Tab A500
That kitten is very cute. :)
This whole fondleslab thing is getting most vexing. It's a constant battle between want and don't need, and want is gaining ground...
That's a very cute kitten.
Also, tablet doesn't sound bad either, though I'm still holding out for a Transformer or Slider.
P.S. Like some of the new icons, still would like the dead vulture back.
It's not from apple, that's both the better and the worse
Just got mine today, Amazon shipped it yesterday. It is absolutely beautiful, the first time a new form factor has excited me for many long years in the industry. How it actually works out as a day-to-day machine, of course, remains to be seen.
I Own One!!!!!!!!!
i bought the 32gb model from pc world a month ago and i can tell you right now the battery-life is awesome and i cant put the thing down. the only thing i have to say im bothered about is that it has a locked bootloader which acer is resisting to unlock (i can see their reasons) but apart from that im deffo keeping the tablet and its my new best friend atm
