Can it download from barns and noble and other book apps and be used as a e reader?
It acts as a new device. easy to use, very user friendly. Took it to Maui the first week and it never hesitated to find the wi-fi's and connect when told to. The only down side is its use of skype. The built in speakers work against the noise caneling microphone and you other party can barely hear you. If you wear headphones everything is great. do not try with a headset/micro phone. the same thing occours....

After spending hours researching tablets, I settled on the Acer Iconia A500. I wanted a tablet that functions well, but that doesn't have an astronomical price. I've had it a week now and used it in every setting I'd intended it for. Here's the scoop: Pros: - High-def screen - Plenty of storage, and expandable up to 32 g - USB connector - recognizes all types of input (I used a USB keyboard at class today) - Android ICS (some manual configuration is required if it's not already upgraded when purchased, but nothing too involved) - Almost computer-like multitasking - No crashes or system problems when using multiple apps at once - Video and camera work well - Good battery life, compared to other phones/tabs Cons: - Doesn't support bluetooth headsets (doesn't support incoming mic). - Built-in mic is awful (search Acer Iconia A500 microphone to see details) - Refurbished condition has had obvious effects: cover seems a little loose, came with the tab and a cord, and that's all (no documentation of any kind) This tablet works well - as I said, I've used it extensively since I received it, and in class for the first time today. It performed flawlessly in that capacity, and I'm very pleased with it overall. The reason I am unhappy with the product is that nowhere does Acer mention that this tab doesn't support bluetooth headsets, or indeed any kind of device that provides incoming and outgoing voice. I bought the tablet to replace my phone - I want to go from using 3 devices to just one. The tab works great at school, as mentioned, so that's certainly a plus, but I'm not happy that Acer wasn't clearer about the Bluetooth support. Had I known that, I would not have chosen this tablet. Bottom line: if you're looking for a high-functioning, reasonably-priced tablet, check out the ASUS Transformer instead. It has the capabilities this tab is missing.Read More
