Acer Iconia Tab A700 Jelly Bean update now live for some
There's a whole bunch of things to like about the Acer Iconia Tab A700. For starters, it packs a pretty 10.1-inch screen with the impressive resolution of 1920 by 1200 pixels. And then there's the powerful Tegra 3 processor by NVIDIA with four processing cores running at 1.3GHz. But effective today, a new item can be added on the list, and that is the fresh dose of Jelly Bean that is currently being pushed out for the tablet.

A number of XDA Developers members are reporting that their Acer Iconia Tab A700 is being updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean today. Since the folks who are spreading out the good news are from Germany, we assume that the rollout isn't international, but it probably won't be long until the new software reaches everyone else.

In addition to adding a handful of new apps and widgets, Android 4.1 improves the touch sensitivity of the tablet, as one Iconia Tab A700 user reports. Also, apps are seemingly launching and exiting more quickly, and perhaps project Butter has something to do with that.

The Android 4.1 update is about 332MB in size, so make sure you are connected to Wi-Fi when downloading it. Anyone who has already received the new software is free to let us know by dropping a line down in the comments.
