3G did not see the The Acer Iconia Tab A500 as the main contender to win the European Tablet Award, I mean whatever happened to Apple's iPad and the Motorola Xoom to name just two other competing tablets.

3G reviewed the The Acer Iconia Tab A500 in July this year when our reviewer awarded the tablet 3 stars but a hint of its greatness came from our reviewer when he commented "A good looking tablet and the best Android device we've seen from Acer, the Tab A500 offers a decent alternative to the Motorola Xoom".

A rear-facing 5 megapixel camera features autofocus and flash and is the main camera while there is also a forward facing 2 megapixel camera for video calls. The Acer ICONIA TAB A500 comes with the Clear.Fi media app which manages photos, music and videos.
