Acer Iconia Tab A500 Now Receiving Ice Cream Sandwich Update Ahead Of Schedule

Yesterday, we told you guys about Acer Iconia Tab A100 tablets receiving their Android 4.0 update a little early, and now, it looks like the 10-inch version is joining in on the fun as well. Acer Iconia Tab A500 users have been reporting that Ice Cream Sandwich has come early for their devices.

Officially, Android 4.0.3 wasn’t scheduled to begin rolling out for the tab until the 27th, but it looks like Acer has decided to go ahead and roll out the update early for some (not all) users. As always, a simple jump into your Settings > About, will allow you to manually check for the update. Anyone receive it yet?

Thanks, Willem!

  • LAVA

    What does Samsung have to do with an Acer update? Or did you just feel the need to vent?

    Not in Australia yet. Acer ANZ still say it will be released may 17th.

    I got the update this morning in North Carolina.  It’s super fast, I like it, but no Acer Ring?  I’m I missing something?

    Still waiting here in central florida. Last I checked over the herizon there was nothing coming for miles away. And on top of that I haven’t been able find any new info about it, could this all be leading up to a delay for the a100?
