the Iconia Tab A500 is a really nice tablet. My gf's mom got one as an anniversary present a couple weeks ago. I helped her dad pick it out, would have went with the Transformer but it was right around release and nowhere had it in stock, regardless.
My only complaint about it is that it is a little bulky. It comes preloaded w/ NFS Shift and some golf game, but they are FULL versions of the game, not some stripped demo. While playing NFS you notice how much heft there is to it. Its not that heavy, just a little surprising b/c when you look at it it seems like it should be super light.
Everything else on the tab is awesome, the screen is amazing, although I haven't watched videos or anything yet, just web browsing and some games. Honeycomb takes a little getting used to, and there aren't nearly as many apps/games available for it as froyo/gb, but that should change soon enough.
I wish I had some extra cash on hand cause I would jump all over this deal....although I am still seriously considering the Transformer as a netbook/laptop replacement. This one is #2 right behind it.

Yeah I managed to get there and get mine early. Target by me only had 5 in stock and myself and one other person were there at like 830 since I didnt want to miss out.
I was real glad this got posted here because I almost bought one but held out for the deal. Thanks guys!!
