Default Will A500 docking station fit A100

Does anyone have both A500 and A100? Does anyone know if the A100 will fit into the A500 docking station? The A100 docking station is double the price of the A500 unit.

I was looking into this a while back, and it seems that it does, the guys over at acertabletforum.com have more info, here http://www.acertabletforum.com/forum...abilities.html and, http://www.acertabletforum.com/forum...desk-dock.html

I, too, find that the price for the A100 dock is absolutely insane, it truly is ridiculous considering the A500 dock is near enough the same.

Does anybody know if the w500 keyboard will fit the a100? There doesn't seem to be an a100 one on the site.

Yep, had both, and picked up the dock a while back when it was on sale for the A500. Fits on there just fine.

Yup it fits. I have a A100 tablet in a A500 dock. There's a little bit of room left over on each side of the tablet but it works fine.

I'm considering the docking station, however does it only sit in portrait, or does it allow landscape as well? I'm looking to adapt it to my car, and would really need it to sit in landscape mode.

Thanks..

ive never used the dock, just assumed you could force landscape no matter what with software controls.
