Acer Iconia A500 3.2 Honeycomb OTA Update expected around August 25th

0
While many tablets have already seen the update to Android 3.2 Honeycomb like the Motorola Xoom and the ASUS Transformer we haven’t heard anything regarding the Acer A500 Tablet. It was updated to Android 3.1 back in July but appears to be a little late to the 3.2 party. Users wont need to wait much longer because we may see the update in August.


Don’t feel that bad though Acer Fans, the G-Slate only received 3.1 like this week so you guys are still looking pretty good for current and future updates. The Iconia A500 should see 3.2 start rolling out on August 25 according to the Acer Malaysia Facebook page, and while Acer hasn’t mentioned anything regarding the US update this is a good sign that it is coming.
Do take note that the original update was penciled in for August 10th but that never happened obviously. Hopefully this 2-3 week delay will help Acer get everything dialed in and we may even see other regions begin the update around the same date. With the OTA getting closer to rolling out we should be hearing from Acer regarding the US update any day now so be sure to check back often.
