Back in April, we got our mitts on the Acer Iconia Tab A500 tablet for review. This tablet was cool because it was the first tablet to hit the market that ran Android 3.0 Honeycomb. If you purchased one of the tablets or the A501, you will be glad to hear that a new Android update is reportedly available for the tablet right now. The update should be available OTA and will take the tablet from 3.0 to 3.2.
There are several new features that the update brings to the tablet including the ability to scale the smaller apps made for smartphones up to the full screen size of the tablet. The app zooming is done by scaling the pixels. The update also reportedly brings with it the ability to sync media from the SD card and increases the overall performance on the tablet. The tip comes from a Polish website called Tablet-online.pl. The publication says that sources have indicated in Poland the tablet will come with Android 3.2 from the factory starting this week.
The tablet has a 10.1-inch screen with a SIM card slot and a microSD card slot. It comes with 16GB of internal storage and a 2MP front camera. The rear camera is a 5MP unit with LED flash and auto-focus. The tablet uses the NVIDIA Tegra 250 dual Cortex A9 1GHz processor inside. One of the interesting features of the tablet is a USB port.[via Tablet-online.pl]
