I have an Acer Iconia a500 and its still going strong (ANDROID 4.2 REPRESENT and all that). However, its getting on in age, and there's bugs w/ 4.2 on the Tegra 2 chipset. Here's why I bought taht Iconia. 10" tablet with 720p screen... The full USB port at the time was a must, no longer is a must-have. Build quality was and still is good. Also, open platform. Alas, official support has ended and I'm tooling with mostly stable (good enough for daily use ) 4.2.1 ROM's. Here's my requirements. -It must be 10" -Definitely want it to be $499 or below. -Heavily skinned tablets are not a consideration unless its easy to root and replace the ROM -Rootability (Can it be rooted, and does it stick?) -Do NOT want a 3G tablet, or 4G Would LIKE but not required: -MicroSD card slot (Not required... Streaming media and cloud storage offset normal use, use it for Titanium backup mostly) -CM10 availability -Full-sized USB port, or a microUSB that has a full USB adapter (adapter can be separate), as I use it with cameras, keyboards, etc sometimes (though again, not required... WiFi, cloud storage, Bluetooth, etc) What suggestions do you guys have? Also, should I hold out for Android 5 (Key Lime Pie) and/or Tegra 4, at this point?
