The Acer ICONIA Tab A500 is an Android tablet with a 10.1 inch display, NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor, and support for Verizon’s 4G LTE network. I stopped by the NVIDIA booth to check out the tablet, and found that it handled high performance 3D graphics like a champ, making the A500 an excellent little gaming machine.
The tablets is light on physical buttons, which would be problematic since it’s currently running a version of Android designed to have Home, Menu, and Back buttons. But Acer has gotten around this by implementing a feature that lets you swipe across the corner of the screen to bring up on-screen buttons that you can press from any application. It’s a bit more elegant a solution than I’ve seen on some other Android tablets suffering from a button shortage.
