The Acer Iconia Tab A500 is currently in the process of receiving not one, but two different software updates. Sadly, none of them contain Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but they do come with some neat stuff.
First of all, you’ll get the absolute latest version of the Android Market (3.4.4). Then there are also many UI fixes and improvements which make operating the tablet simply faster. The speeding up can also be seen in the keyboard.
It’s unclear at the moment if either of these updates (7.014.01, and 7.014.02, respectively) breaks root, so in case your Iconia Tab does have root, perhaps you should hold off on installing the updates until you can be sure you’ll be able to get root access back.
