Acer iconia a501 4G android tablet review

I have never been a fan of android in the past and when I was told I was getting this tablet from school I thought  I would hate it. I had originally planned on selling it and putting the money I got from it with what I had saved before to buy a refurbished iPad 2 16gb. I decided that since a new ipad was sure to come soon I decided to wait and just play with this one until it came out. The day i picked up the acer I discovered the acer had similar programs that I wanted to use the iPad with free. So I edited some wedding photos with the tablet from a wedding I was the photographer at. I have totally fallen for this tablet and plan on keeping it till it dies. Once it dies then I will get an iPad. I write this review from the tablet and I do have to say there are things that it can do that an Ipad cant. I have a keyboard built into the case for the tablet that plugs in via usb and would not be compatible with an iPad. When I first got it, it was slightly buggy but once I sat down to look at it I found the update that needed to be done to fix the issues with the browser crashing. I can say that android has come a long way from where it started and I tip my facinator to google for moving forward in this time of technology and not backwards as some companies have done recently. In the past I have never liked acer BUT this tablet gives me hope that they are on the verge of becoming the best they can be, as corny as that sounds. I don't know why but I have this sneaking feeling that in the next 3 years acer is going to try to enter the smart phone business.
What I would change: The device is quite heavy and I always feel that I might drop it. I try to always use it on a table top.
Have you gotten an acer iconia tablet? What do you think of it so far?
