Acer Iconia Tab A200 getting Android 4.0 update now


When the Acer Iconia Tab A200 was released, last month, the manufacturer promised that an update to Ice Cream Sandwich would follow up, coming February. And just as we expected, without previous notice, the delicious update has just started to hit A200 tablets.

This update brings you up to Android 4.0.3, and the version number is Acer_AV041_A200_1.037.00_PA_CUS1. So if you have not yet been prompted to update your tablet, it might be a good idea to start tapping away in the settings. Just go to Settings > About tablet > System update > Check now and you should be set.

Go ahead and let us know how everything goes, and enjoy your new update!

    • Carl Rood

      It makes sense.  It was promised with the device’s release, as a selling point.

    Still waiting for ICS on my OG Transformer. Wasn’t Asus supposed to be sending out the update late Jan / early Feb? Tisk, tisk, Asus….

    • AndroidManiac

      some of you cry babies almost make me wish they don’t send it out to you

      • Matthew Merrick

        i guess you don’t mind if you never get ICS then?

        • AndroidManiac

          If they don’t upgrade my SGS2 than I guess I will decide. My phone works perfectly fine as it is.

            not everyone is as accepting of mediocrity as you are, some of us expect more from our manufacturers.

            Not crying about not getting new software (which still has bugs) on old hardware (which works as intended) is not accepting mediocrity. Acer said something. Acer did what it said. I don’t see the problem

      I didn’t know Acer had control over what Asus releases.

  • Varitek

    While the Nexus S4g still waits. That’s not OK.

    • AndroidManiac

      Oh wait did they say you’d get ice cream sandwich when you bought the phone?

      • Oleg Ostrovskiy

        When buying a Nexus phone, it is expected that updates will come before most other phones.

      I didn’t know Acer had control over what Samsung releases.

  • wtpanos

    Why isn’t my gnex updated to this yet!!!???

  • koolkat2

    What the?!?!? What about A500 and A100!?!?!??????????!??!!!!!!!!!!

    • Carl Rood

      They were not promised the upgrade at their release.  It wasn’t an actual selling point for them.

  • Gary K

    Acer on Facebook (I assume the “official” Acer FB account) posted that the A500 tab will get a ICS update sometime in April (yes 2012).
