and basically all video/chat applications that I tried (Gtalk, Yahoo Messenger while it worked, OOvOO, Tango, etc.) The microphone is really sub standard and makes video chatting a very frustrating experience. I have just tried a video chat between the new iPad and a PC with excellent results both in audio and video. My A500 was successfully upgraded to ICS 4.0.3 and it works very well in all other areas, except for a few minor flaws such as Dolphin browser crashing when going full screen with flash videos. Flash isn't really working 100% on ICS, regardless of browsers but the audio deficiency is a mortal flaw if you consider this tablet as a comprehensive communications device. I thought that Acer had found a solution for this problem and that it was packaged in the ICS update. Unfortunately that wasn't the case.
