I get articles from TechRepublic daily and some of their series include cracking open various new and old technologies. They just released this one on the Acer Iconia A500 that some might be interested in. Shows good photos and, for those of us with steady hands and low battery lives (down the road) it shows how to get to the battery and looks like Acer made this one easy on us. You might need to sign up for an account on TechRepublic to view. Enjoy!
