Acer Iconia Tab A500 receiving its portion of Android 3.1 Honeycomb
The Acer Iconia Tab A500 has started receiving its portion of the Android 3.1 Honeycomb OTA update July 5th, judging from an Acer Germany Facebook page posting. We heard about this update back in May, although the promise was for the first weeks of June; still, beginning of July is not too shabby either.

The Acer Iconia Tab A500 is a 10" Honeycomb slate with nice aluminum back cover and all the bells and whistles one would expect from a self-respecting Android tablet.

At last check it also comes cheaper than most Android tablet offerings, selling for around $450 at places like Best Buy or Amazon, so whoever is the lucky owner of the Iconia Tab A500, the thought that the Android 3.1 Honeycomb update is coming over the air should be warming your hearts.

The move from 3.0 to 3.1 is an incremental update, bringing UI improvements, as well as connectivity for USB accessories. The default browser, calendar, contacts and email applications are also graced with new features, so this should suffice before Android Ice Cream Sandwich hits later this year.

The upgrade had been pulled mid day here in the US and is not showing up anymore.
