Android 4.1 JellyBean pushing out to Acer Iconia Tab A700 in Germany


Slowly but steady every week a new smartphone or tablet receives its software upgrade to the latest operating system by Google – Android 4.1 JellyBean. This week is Acer Iconia Tab A700 to get the upgrade as users have reportedly receiving the software update since yesterday.

The new build is 1.028.00_EMEA_DE ( ACER_AV051_A700_1.028.00_EMEA_DE ) for Germany. Regarding a change log Acer hasnt issued any official details yet, however someone on XDA forums says that the following changes will be made once the update is installed on the A700.

The update improves and installs the following:

  • JB, obviously. Which includes changing the time font, Recent Apps and colour of the soft button pressing (gray instead of blue).
  • Google Chrome.
  • Acer Cloud.
  • Google Currents.
  • Google Voice Search (Google Now).

The update installs the following widgets:

  • Google Play Books (doesn’t seem to work).
  • Google Play Music.
  • Play – My Library.
  • Play Recommendations.

It Improves the touch experience greatly. Note that the option in the Settings is set back to “Normal”, you can change it to “High” but it doesn’t seem to be necessary.

No other languages are added.
Google Play Store doesn’t seem to be updated. I still need to download the full app after an update.

All the apps start and shut down fast, only the launcher doesn’t seem to work that smooth anymore. Maybe try another launcher like Apex?
