    Acer will be selling a cover that looks good, for $39.95. However, I haven't been able to find out how to get one yet.

    I wrote to Acer asking about the cover and they seemed to have no clue as to when the retailers will be selling the accessories. Interesting, eh?

    Post a pic of it when you get it, please. I can't find any cases on their site. I've bought music from them, so I already have an account. I have a temporary case, but I want the one that's made for it.

    THAT'S why I want that case! It appears to fit the A500 well and it's thin and highly functional. Best Buy has a few generic cases that are recommended until this case comes. I spoke with a pretty knowledgeable rep (first time in memory that I've been impressed with a BB salesperson) and he told me to check back in a week, where they should have either more information or a few of the accessories trickling in.

    Does anyone have any idea what Acer intends to use the larger port on the bottom of the device for? Out of the box it has no use but I'm thinking down the road... an overpriced docking station like the xoom?

    Re: that case total ipad rip off, not as nice looking, but I suppose practical.

    They have a dock coming ($69, I think) that will need that port.

    There is a "media dock" that will come out shortly that I think is kind of worthless, but I think acer will release a kbd dock ala asus transformer similar to the one they are bundling with the iconia W500 (windows tablet)

    As far as the case is concerned, apple didn't exacly invent a case that changes into a stand, and this will be far more useful than the ipad2 case (full protection front and back)

    Here is hoping there is somewhat decent aftermarket support for the A500.

    I've seen screensavers on Amazon for a few weeks now, so there's hope.
