The Acer Iconia Tab A500 and A100 were supposed to get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich updates starting mid-April (hence about now). Unfortunately, this won’t happen, as the updates have been delayed a bit.
Now Acer is officially stating that the two tablets will receive ICS starting April 27 in the US. In Canada, the A500 should get the new version of Android the same day, while A100 users will have to wait until May 3.
Owners of the Iconia Tab A501 will be disappointed to find out that Acer doesn’t plan to update this model to ICS. I really don’t understand why, since this is similar to the A500, with the sole difference that it features 3G connectivity.
