Acer Iconia Tab A500 Android 3.2 update coming on September 10th

Acer iconia tab

Acer Iconia A500 was announced in February 2011 and launched in April 2011 is a 1 GHz Dual Core CPU, 1GB RAM 10.1″ Android Tablet with Android OS v3.0 (Honeycomb).We had been listening for Android v3.2 Honeycomb update for the Acer Iconia A500 which was promised for 25th August but it never showed, and we feel like Acer haven’t left us out in the cold instead going public on why the date slipped.

News Posting on the Acer Malaysia Facebook page, says that the update now looks set to be released on September 10th. It has been learned in the past that Acer update has been suffering some issues with the GPS settings, however folks at all major Tablet forums are recommending that it would have been better that update is released with bugs and they are removed in minor updates rather than such long wait.

Some the major features of Android v3.2 Honeycomb update include,

  • Optimization for a wide range of screen sizes and Application access
  • New “zoom-to-fill” screen using compatibility mode
  • Capability to load media files directly from the SD card
  • Extended screen support API which provides developers with more precise control over the UI

Android updates are always welcome, however we expect that this time Acer Iconia A500 Android v3.2 Honeycomb update would be hitting the shelves very soon.

    Somthing going wrong between Acer and Google

    Apparently been delayed AGAIN.

  • I love my Acer Iconia A500 tab, but two major things make it suck:

    1) The 5 MP camera is amazing for recording video, but the internal microphone is a piece of shit. Luckily, you can work around this by purchasing an iPhone-compatible microphone, and it will work with the A500.

    2) THERE IS NO VIDEO SUPPORT IN SKYPE! When the hell are they going to fix this? That was one of the main reasons why I bought this tablet, and I was really dismayed when I discovered I couldn’t go on skype with my tablet. Now doing a video chat in Google Talk works fine, but I don’t have as many friends using Google Talk as I do on Skype, and Skype in my opinion is way better in terms of quality. They definitely need to release an update to the Skype app that supports this tablet!

    If Acer were to fix these two issues, I’d be completely happy with my tablet, and I’d probably find myself using it more often than I do now.
