    Hi! I recently purchased an Acer A500 and have been enjoying learning about Android. I had one problem - registering using the A500 and ended up reverting to my PC. I couldn't get past the first hurdle - Country. The popup covered countries from V to Z and I couldn't get it to scroll to the beginning (USA). I also notice that the Acer shop I get is the United Kingdom shop (caused by failure to register using the A500???? ).
    I look forward to reading and contributing. Peter

    Hi Peterwoody, welcome to the forum. Congratulations on the new tablet. If you have any questions or need information about your tablet, head over to the Acer Tablets section. That's where your fellow A500 folks can usually be found.

    I bought it at Target. They had a $50 gift certificate along with the $400 price.

    Try opening the GPS to see if it can locate your area.
