Acer Iconia Tab A500 to receive an OTA Ice Cream Sandwich update in April


One of Acer Australia & New Zeeland employee spilled the beans on their official Facebook page about a forthcoming firmware upgrade for Iconia Tab A500 which will bring Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system to the slate.

The update is due to arrive sometime in April, if Acer Australia & New Zeeland developers manage to successfully port the new OS to A500. Experienced users know from custom ROM developers how hard is to port an Android OS and how long it takes before the ROM is ready for a daily use.

Acer might issue an official press release (statement) soon due to the high amount of requests about Iconia Tab A500 and A200 software update. The A200 Ice Cream Sandwich OTA update will start rolling out by the end of this month.
