Acer Iconia Tab A500 and A501 Android 3.2 update now rolling out (at least in Poland)

Following in the footsteps of the Motorola Xoom and the Asus Eee Pad Transformer, Acer’s two 10.1-inch Android-powered tablets, the Iconia Tab A500 and the Iconia Tab A501 are apparently now getting their Android 3.2 update.

Android 3.2 is still classified as Honeycomb, and it brings a few enhancements alongside what’s probably a slew of bug fixes. Most notable, perhaps, are the full SD card support now baked into the OS, and the new app scaling method that should allow apps written for smartphones to look a lot better on tablets.

Right now, the Android 3.2 update for the Iconia Tab only seems to have started rolling out in Poland, but we expect it to slowly make its way across the world. The update is over-the-air, and as such you don’t need to do anything special or use a computer to install it. Your tablet will notify you once the update is available, and you go from there.

In Poland, new Acer Iconia Tabs will be sold with Android 3.2 preinstalled starting later this week.
