    It's a good thing you added the 32G card. I have only the 16G of internal memory and with my chosen apps and music I only have about 12G free yet.

    I am starting to like my A500 more now that I got my dropped wifi issue fixed for now. I believe my router was mishandling the connection, the more I read about my DIR-655 router.

    As far as I understand, the only diff between the a501 and a500 is the 3G capability. I also do what chismay does and tether my a500 tablet to my phone (Galaxy Nexus) and use it's 3G connection. Great for AudioGalaxy app so I can stream music right off my home HDD, and watch YouTube vids in my truck on the go, while I leave my phone in the 12 V charging mount for calls.

    Good idea with the 32 GB card as well.

    Were the reboots part of the upgrade process? Mine upgraded the operating system from 3.01 when I got it to 3.21 in 3 steps, each requiring a reboot. Once up to date it has been stable.

    I got 3.2 out of the box and i don't think Roters would be fast enough to push 3.2.1 now... i remember with my sony ericsson xperia x10... we had the updates about 2 months after release
