If you’re the owner of any Acer Iconia Tab, you’ll be pleased to know that the company has finally started rolling out its update to the latest Android OS. However, updates will be completed by the end of April so you have to check if the update is already available to your specific tablet model.

According to Acer, the new OS is equipped with improvements that will make each tablet easier to use and navigate. In addition, these tablets will have an improved user interface as well as an easier time in managing applications and folders. Acer has also improved the Web browser and also the multitasking features of the tablet. Moreover, the update comes with Acer Ring; an app that lets users have an easier time accessing key apps on their tablet, take and post pictures, and even write new status updates on any of their social networks.

The first Iconia Tab model to get the update will be the 10-inch A200 models; which will be completed by next week. On the other hand, 7-inch Iconia Tab A100 and 10-inch Iconia Tab A500 models will get the update by the end of April. This is both for tablets based in the United States.

When asked when the update will be delivered in other parts of the world, Acer has failed to comment. So Iconia Tab units from other parts of the world will have to make do with the Android 3.0 OS until Acer finally releases the update for Android 4.0.

Don’t worry, we’ll keep you posted!
