In the lower-right corner is the wall charger input. That blurry, green circle in the bottom middle of the screen is the Acer ring: your doorway to livening things up later.

Grippy

Unfortunately, there's no memory slot door here to keep things exciting, but there is a nice grip-tastic gray backside. On the top left and right corners are the speaker holes.

Always take the shortcut

From the lock screen, one of four customizable shortcuts can be accessed. Also, a giant thumb takes control of the situation.
