Acer rolls out Android 4.0 ICS update for Iconia Tab A501, Rogers’ included

by 1 year ago

Believe it or not, the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade for Acer Iconia Tab 500/501 was hinted back in November of last year, with January being set as the possible date. It wasn’t until May that a variant of the tab got the promised scoop of ice cream, but ICS on the A501 was still nowhere to be found. Fast forward to today, it appears the Android 4.0.3 OTA update is finally being rolled out by Acer.

Acer says Jelly Bean updates are coming for several tablets, no names and dates mentioned just yet

by 2 years ago

With Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out for a while now, it’s only natural to expect the market’s major players to announce their upgrading plans. And while the first such signals have been quite shy, with only HTC and Asus making their voices heard, the past week or so has been much more spirited. Sony let us down by announcing that 2011 Xperia phones won’t be getting JB, while Toshiba and surprisingly Intel raised our spirits by making opposite announcements. Samsung is yet to unveil its Android 4.1 plans, but rumors state that their JB upgrades for the Galaxy S3 and…

Although it has started selling in the US for more than a month, Acer’s special Olympic Edition of the Iconia Tab A510 hasn’t seen the light of day where it should be most expected, in the UK. London will be the host of the Summer Olympics starting in just over a couple of months, so it was only natural to expect Acer step things up for British sports/tech fanatics. Fortunately, we now have heard news about the tablet’s UK release on Carphone Warehouse. Unfortunately, that is still set for an unspecified date sometime in June. It’s true, June is just…

While Acer didn’t specify when fresh batches of the Iconia Tab A510 and A511 will be shipped out, the company did mention that owners of the two tablets need not worry about the quality of the tablets that have already been sold, as they’re not affected by said faulty component. For US folks who want to try out Acer’s quad-core…

The list of tablets featuring NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 processor is slowly but steadily extending and here’s another one joining this illustrious group. Acer announced that the Acer Iconia Tab A510 is available for pre-order starting today.

Back in CES 2012, Acer did not officially talk about their Iconia Tab A510.

They even gave out a release date and price. The slated date for release will be on April and its price will be €500 (around $500 in the US). But now that the Iconia…
