According to an Acer spokesperson, the company has official made plans to roll out Jelly Bean to the Iconia Tab A110, A210 and the A510 before the end of this year. On a less happy note, they also confirmed that the A100, A200, and A500 would not receive the update most likely due to limitations in the hardware.
By the end of the year may seem like a long wait, but it’s most definitely better than never. Keep your head up, Iconia owners.
It seems like every few months there is a new Android tablet coming out with a little bit better specs than the tablet before it. It may seem like that because it’s true, which makes it very difficult for people to decide when to jump into the Android tablet game and at what price.

Acer’s new Iconia Tab A510 was announced this morning for North America. This is their first quad-core Tegra 3 effort and will run customers $449 if interested. At that price, you get Android 4.0, a 10.1″ screen, special Olympic Games branding on the back, Polaris office suite, 12 hours of battery life, 32GB of storage, 1GB of RAM, dual cameras, and again, the power of Tegra 3. The A510 can be pre-ordered today, however, Acer has not given a specific date for when it may actually arrive in your hands or stores.
We fondled a similar tab at CES and came away impressed for the most part. The price isn’t bad for a quad-core processor and 32GB of storage, but can it steal consumers away from the iPad or Transformer Prime? (more…)
