At this price it competes against the iPad 2.

It might be a tough sell ... if there is some sort of "killer" app that features the Tegra 3 ... the blows the socks off and then some of the iPad 2 version ... that ... might .... bring people ...

You think Acer is rolling out a brand new tab to compete against one that is more than a year old? lol

My A500 is a dog. It couldn't even compete against my old 1st gen iPad, and it still hasn't gotten ICS.

Reasons Acer can't compete:
- Poor to zero customer support
- Poor quality (A500 screen isn't even IPS)
- Bloatware
- Slow. Why is the keyboard on a Tegra2 tablet lagging?!!
- Poor tablet app selection

Hardware specs alone won't make any tablet competitive.

I have the Motorola Xoom and as much as I am loving the Tegre 3, I need to have a Full HD screen. Asus Transormer Pad Infinity :)

I agree! Allmthismtablet is missing is the HD screen but you have to admit that's one he'll of a price point for a quad core tablet.
