Android 4.0 rollout starts for Acer ICONIA TAB models
Updates to Android 4.0 have started for Acer ICONIA TAB models in the States. While that is exciting news for owners of these tablets, Acer says that it will be April before all of its tablets are running on Ice Cream Sandwich. Depending on the model you have, your ICONIA TAB could be rocking with the latest and greatest build of Google's open source OS as soon as the end of next week.

First in line to receive Android 4.0 will be the 10 inch A200 models and the update for those tablets should be completed by the end of next week. The 7 inch Acer ICONIA TAB A100 and the 10 inch Acer ICONIA TAB A500 will be the recipients of the update to Ice Cream Sandwich by the end of April.

The update will bring improved tablet navigation and should make the devices easier to use, according to a statement from Acer. There will be an improved UI and apps and folders will be easier to manage. A feature called the Acer Ring will make it simple getting to important tablet applications. Posting pictures and status updates to social networks will be easier for users, and the tablets will have an improved web browser. Acer is planning on offering a cloud-based service called AcerCloud that would allow Acer smartphone, tablet and PC users to store documents, video and images with the manufacturer for free.

Those using Acer's A-series tablets overseas will apparently have to settle for Honeycomb for now; the manufacturer would not comment when asked when the Android 4.0 update would start globally.
