Acer promises that the battery is good for 10.5 hours of video playback and that the tablet should will high-quality sound with Dolby Mobile 3 and support for 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound via HDMI out.

"Customers looking for a no-compromise tablet will get the features and performance they want in the new Acer A700."

I've never actually used the micro-SD card slot on my Droid X for anything except to take pictures... and the only reason I do that is because the phone doesn't allow me to take pictures to the internal storage (don't know why.)

Because if you wipe your phone (factory reset), it completely erases all data from the internal storage, but your pics and other data are safe on the SD card.

If you get a new phone, just transfer the card to the new phone and you're all set.

There are some great benefits to iCloud, but not in areas with no service when you MUST have something. That's not a knock, just reality to all cloud based computing.

And I do agree that Google Music needs improvements. I've never had a single issue with it other than it's ridiculously dumbed down features. I want some more control over the music itself. But as for streaming music, never once a problem over 8 Android devices.

That makes sense but it is still annoying. At least give me the option. I gave my fiance my 16GB microSD when she went on a trip and I never imagined that I wouldn't be able to take pictures without it. I saw a license plate that said "CAR LOL" and I couldn't even snap a photo of it. I was bummed.

The network requirements for cloud computing are a bummer sometimes but I usually plan ahead. When I'm going on a trip I have to transfer the music and movies/tv shows I want.

Google Music wasn't a bad experience overall I was just annoyed that it rejected so much of my music. The initial setup issues were probably simply related to the fact that it was in beta.
