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!
