The Acer Iconia Tab A500 has been a fairly popular tablet, due to its low price compared to most high end tablets and the fact that it has a mostly stock build of Android. Thankfully, this means the Ice Cream Sandwich update can come sooner, as Acer doesn’t have to modify Android as much to get it out to the public.
The update, while not as quick as many had hoped, has been announced by Acer for both the 7 inch A100 and the 10.1 inch A500. Acer stated that it will go live on April 27th in the US and Canada. However, some people are reporting that it’s live today. If you own a A500, do a manual check for updates in Settings and you just might find yourself with a shiny new OS version!
