Acer Iconia Tab A500 gets HDMI dock with remote control

3 days ago I wrote an article about how similar these Honeycomb tablets are. One of my suggestions for making them stand out was, and I quote, “Integrate an HDMI port (rather than mini-HDMI) and include an IR remote control, and you’ll have something to brag about for $10 worth of parts”. Seems like Acer had the exact same idea, as 2 days later images popped up of an HDMI docking station with an IR remote. The A500 already has a mini-HDMI port, but this dock accepts standard HDMI. Certainly a nice addition for anyone wanting to watch videos on the big screen. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to predict this week’s lottery numbers.
