Yesterday, we got news that Acer was planning on upgrading the Iconia Tab A500 to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in April. Unfortunately, the information came from Acer’s New Zealand Facebook Page and was relevant to customers in New Zealand and Australia. The news left many customers in the U.S. wondering when they, too, would be getting upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Acer America has confirmed the Android 4.0 upgrade for the Iconia Tab A500 and A100. According to a tweet by Acer America, you should expect to get Android 4.0 on your Iconia Tab A500 and A100 sometime in mid-April. Although April is still far away, at least the device will be getting upgraded and a clear time frame is now available.
To all Acer Iconia Tab A500 and A100 users, please expect an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade in mid-April! Thank you for your patience.
