Yesterday, we let you guys know that the Acer Iconia Tab A500 would officially be receiving its Android 4.0 update sometime in April. The only problem was, that word came from Acer’s New Zealand division, leaving many A500 owners in the states (and other regions) wondering if they would receive the same treatment during that time.

Well, Acer America has finally confirmed today, via their Twitter, that the Ice Cream Sandwich update will, in fact, be arriving for the Iconia A500 during that same time frame. What’s more, the A100 was also added to the announcement and should be seeing the Android 4.0 update in April as well. Unfortunately, this announcement may still be seen by some as bad news, specifically, users who were expecting something a little sooner.

Thanks, Joseph!
