    It's available at the end of july in the UK, not sure about other countries.
    The only difference I have read about is the fact it has 3g. They are shipping the same model that we all have, minus the sticker over the sim card slot, so you won't be able to text or phone.
    So basically you will be paying nearly

    As far as I can see no you can't use as a mobile phone.

    I would prefer my wifi a500 plus using mobile phone as a modern. So I can online everywhere.

    I think most of the network provider currently offer mobile wifi (mifi)
    Maybe as an alternative to 3G u can consider mifi if u think of mobile internet

    First thing Register with Acer...OK
    Next Set up my usual Google Email...NO keeps telling me Address and Password not correct.
