Acer Iconia tablet range will soon be getting Ice Cream Sandwich update

If you own an Acer Iconia tablet life will soon start to get better for you. Buried deep within the Acer support pages a table has appeared showing the update schedule for the A100, A200, A500 and A501 tablets. One slight problem though. It is the US section of the Acer support site. The UK areas show no information at all. No doubt the UK site will update itself soon.

This update will be great for the Iconia range as you can get the A100 and A500 rather cheaply at the moment. You might not want to rush out quite yet though, I would wait to see how long this takes to materialise in the UK.

If you own one of these tablets, do us a favour and have a look to see if you have already have this update in the UK. If you do send us some sort of screenshot. Thanks.
