    I was taking pics yesterday. 95% full battery. Nothing extra plugged into the tablet. On the 12th pic, it froze. Rebooted and the OS was fried. Nothing brought it back. Reset button, ran the kernal repair bootup. Nothing. Acer gave me a shipping RMA today. Has anyone heard of this. My company was about to buy 10 of these this week and more later. Now we are on hold. Has anyone heard of any other Honeycomb tablet doing this? This is bad for our project. Now we don't trust the platform to be reliable.:( If there was a way to support these in house without sending them to the Repair Center, we might feel better.

    Maybe you jsut got a bad unit. Doesn't sound like you did anything that would have caused that.

    Was the device rooted? I've heard of people bricking their tablets after rooting (most specifically after renaming the telephony apk's).
