Can you tell the product is refurbished?

I'm interested in buying this as a gift for my brother. Is there anything in the box or any signs at all of this being a refurbished product? Don't want to give him a second hand present.

Camera: From the specs section: Back 5MP webcam with auto focus with single LED flash and front 2MP webcam.

compare to Ipad...your kind of comparing apples (pun intended) to oranges. They both do similar things such as games, apps, internet etc. Each has apps designed specifically for it, (all android systems us the same stuff, Ipad is different). Ipad is supposed to be easier, acer is faster, better display and has better options. I suggest you google for a comparison and decide what is best for you.
example: http://www.mobile88.com/news/read.asp?file=/2011/5/27/20110527011409&phone=Comparison-Acer-Iconia-Tab-A500-versus-Apple-iPad-2

Yes it has a 2mp front and a 5mp rear facing, not only are the cameras there but everything about this tablet blows the I pad out of the water this is one of the most overlooked tablet values out there also more ports out and in than almost any tablet auto upgrades to Honeycomb 3.2 once you set up your Google account.

Yes the Acer Iconia A500 has two cameras. one that points to you for use as a web cam for Skype and the like. That is 2 Megapixels. On the IPad, it's a little deceiving, listed only as HD 720, while the actual pixel count is only 0.3 Megapixels. On the Acer Iconia rear camera, it's an adequate 5 Megapixels, while the Ipad again lists it as HD 720 coming in at 0.97 Megapixels. Easy choice here and yes, Skype works on the Acer Iconia.

I doubt that, but you could always try it. Normally those come with Windows drivers, hence the problem, this is Android, not Windows. You could always post the question on androidforums.com for an answer. I use a MyFi device, which is similar to your stick, but this is about the size of a pack of playing cards and you can connect 5 devices to it using Wi-Fi. Works great, $30 a month from Comcast. Most telcos charge $40+ a month!

There are several manufactures of USB Air Card routers available now. Zoom and Trendnet are two brands I know of and have a Trendnet and its awesome. It turns your air card into a MiFi unit for friends or family. Wal-Mart also carrys a couple versions, they range from a stand alone with battery to units that require 110 volt power connection. Just plug in your wireless carrier air card and connect. Look for this model at walmart.com: TRENDnet 150Mbps Mobile Wireless N RouterTEW-655BR3G $91.44. They also carry these in store and seen one other day in the $55 to $65 range. Other retailers and ebay are a good resource, however the warranty that is available from Wal-mart offsets the additional savings of others. Good Luck.

We do video and text chat on Skype with this tablet.
As far as calls, we don't use it for that but I would assume so since we do use it with the tablet. Don't know 100% for sure.

The upgrade path to Android 3.2 is free on an Acer Iconia A500. Mine came with version 3.0, eventually upgraded to 3.1, then finally to 3.2 I'm hoping that one day I will turn this on and it updates to version 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). the latest version on Android.
