We intend to figure out what’s Acer proposition with the Acer Iconia Tab A500, not only from a value perspective a driving force of netbook sales but in terms of features, design and overall experience.

The backside of the Iconia Tab A500 is similar to the iPad 2, featuring a beautiful brushed aluminum finish. A 5 megapixel camera resides at the top right side of the panel with a small LED flash above it. Two stereo speakers flank the bottom corners with the Acer logo centered in the middle. I really like what Acer has done with the back panel.

If you’re set on buying an Android tablet today, the Acer Iconia Tab A500 is one of the best bets at this writing it tops the Xoom in functionality, and its $450 price is significantly cheaper than the $750 no contract price of the G-Slate. The Acer Iconia Tab A500 is no iPad-killer, but it does give hints of the power of Android’s more open and flexible platform. While I found faults with the Acer Iconia Tab A500 itself, many of my gripes lie with Android 3.0; if Google could only fix that OS’s issues and get the native app ecosystem jump-started, Android tablets might be on to something.
