Acer Iconia Jelly Bean Update

Waiting for your older Acer Iconia to make the jump from Android 4.0 ICS to Jelly Bean? Today isn’t your lucky day. According to Italian website NotebookItalia, an Acer UK representative has already stated that several older Iconia devices will not get an official upgrade to Android 4.1.

Asus-Jelly-Bean

After wrapping up Android 4.1 updates for the entire line of quad-core Tegra 3-powered 2012 tablets, some might have expected Asus to take a break and rest on its laurels for some time. After all, who else has three devices running Jelly Bean already? However, Asus hasn’t forgotten about its aging Transformer TF101 tablet either, working as we speak on a Jelly Bean port for the 2011 10-incher.

The Nexus-related keep coming in these days, which is only natural considering that every Android fan and their grandmother expect Google to unveil at least one new Nexus smartphone in the coming months if not more. Of those, we keep hearing about a Samsung GT-I9260 handset, whose model number is awfully close to last year’s Galaxy Nexus (GT-I9250).

It’s been a rather slow start for the Jelly Bean update wave for all major Android manufacturers, but several of the big players seem to finally start getting cracking. Things seem particularly promising for 10-inch tablets, seeing as the Asus Transformer Prime has been updated to Android 4.1 yesterday, while the Infinity will be getting JB next week.

Acer A110

Despite having what looked like a winner on its hands, Acer didn’t make a huge effort in advertising the 7-inch Iconia Tab A110 tablet. Still, the “Nexus 7 killer” looked quite enticing to those who heard about it, especially after Acer officially announced that it would be coming with Jelly Bean on board.
