Acer have a little catching-up to do in the Android space. The A500 lagged in software updates but it looks like the A100 is shipping with 3.2. As a competitor to the Galaxy Tab it's priced well and should turn in better performance. Definitely worth a closer look, even for existing Galaxy Tab 7 owners.
