    Engadget wrote about the Acer A510 at CES 2012. 10.1" with ICS and no USB port. I wonder if ICS will never be in our A500 futures.

    Oh well, I still think the A500 is the best of...

    It does have a USB port, just not a full size one. Specs on this page: Acer Iconia Tab A510 specs

    Note that it looks like the USB port is treated as a Mass Storage device instead of a MTP device, which would be very welcome.
    You might need a converter to mount your Thumb drive.

    Is there a way to make the 500's microSD card a mass storage device instead of a MTP?

    No. Not that I know of. Wait and see what ICS brings.
    After that, it's in the hackers hands.

    I just want to say something:

    Are they really going to call it the a510?!
    It just seems like the name could easily be confused with the a501 and vice versa. I don't know much about Acer's naming convention, burlt I think that naming it something like the a515 is at least better.
    I mean, how easy is it to misstype a510 and write a501 instead?
    Its pretty easy!

    Sorry, I guess it was more like a rant in the end, but it is a bit concerning to me. I can see lots of people owning to a501 and posting their issues in the a510 forum -_-
