The Acer Iconia Tab A500 is one of a bunch of new tablets launched - others include a Widnows 7 tablet (W500) and a smaller 7-inch tablet (A100). The A500 meanwhile, don't break too many conventions. At 10.1 inches of screen (larger than then iPad's 9.7-inches) and 730 grams (a fair bit heavier than the iPad's 600 grams) you can imagine the size, and portability is obviously affected.
