It seems that it has a microusb proprietary port, not the standard one. So it is the charger...

Was it some IRL testing? Like, if there are some big issues you only get 200 complaints?

Would you read french or not you'll get at least results from some benchmark here:

Thanks for the link! I don't read French, though I was amazed how much I got from the youtube video :) Fortunately, Google does a decent job of translating.

I guess this isn't unusual for a launch, but if you see something up for order, it'd be nice to have an idea it'd arrive sometime soon. I'm currently tablet-less after passing my NookC onto my son and just weighing my options. I'm between the Asus Prime and this one at the moment.

Last news are - from the very source which got this first batch so I guess it's reliable - massive delivery is expected on 4/23 week in France. possibly sooner.

I have been hesitating too between A510 and Prime. I forget Prime, too many issues not yet totally fixed. I don't want to gamble and get a bad unit. Travelling a lot I want a wifi signal as good as I can get especially when it costs 200 euros more than the A510 and A510's wifi is pretty good.
So far feedbacks from A510 are quite good even if it's only few days back so we should be cautious. No repetitive issues emerge yet, showing a serious bug in design or manufacturing.
I may go for it for the next delivery.

I wouldn't trust that AnTuTu benchmark... It's reporting the CPU speed incorrectly as 1400Mhz, A510 is clocked at 1300Mhz.

I guess we need a benchmark for benchmarks to know which are the best.
I don't pay much attention to them. e.g. I'm sure the tegra 3 underclocked Tf300 is still fine for most applications to the point a user wouldn't see any difference. I imagine optimized use of multi cores is more important than frequency.
The real important point here is tf300 fixes Prime's most issues better than having a slower processor. Too bad it drops the IPS+

I copied this off of The Future Shop's A510 Micro-site:

Ports
(1) Micro HDMI™ Port, (1) Micro USB 2.0 Port (1), MicroSD Slot (up to 32GB) , (1) 3.5mm Combo Jack, (1) DC-in Jack for AC Adapter

This sounds to me like the charger is a separate DC-in Jack from the microusb.

Yes. The power slot looks like a microusb but is not. Shape is a bit different. Beside that, it has a standard microusb port.

Amazon got the champagne prime in stock so I went for it, should arrive Tuesday. I'm going to test the heck out of it and hope it's one of those sweet units that rocks. I opted for knowing the issues going in - though I'll keep an eye on this forum in case my prime is a dud. Glad to know it's on the horizon -- that was one limited pre-release!

Has anyone heard updated info? I called Acer Thursday night and they told me they would have them in their warehouse Sunday Apr 15th and would start shipping them Monday Apr 16th. When did this change?
