Is it possible to get a Acer tablet with a 3g set up like a Kindle. It would work when you were out of range of a WiFi connection. With my present A100 I can get a MiFi to carry with the tablet when traveling but it is $50/ month. I doubt if there is a way around this, but Kindle has the 3g set up at no subscription cost. The other option is to get a new smart phone with a hot spot, which might be the way to go.
