Our school went out and purchased a classroom set of the Acer Iconia tablets this week. Right now at Target they are $399 with a $100 gift card back. Almost making the cost half of an ipad. I have greatly enjoyed this tablet. Like the ipad you can type in information, but with this tablet there is also voice to text capabilities, which makes taking notes a breeze. Sometimes it will screw up on what you say, but over all an awesome tablet especially for the price. The other nice part about this tablet is you can use flash on it, where the ipad doesn't have this capability as of yet. Now our math department can use interactive flash material with the tablets.
I just wanted to let other know that until Saturday 8/20 you can get the deal of $399 + $100 gift card back for this tablet at Target. (Not www.target.com - they won't give the gift card)
