several times before still an awesome game, we've got it updated to the newest version available and, what do you know, it's got the ability to work with 3rd party controllers. We got a nice package from NVIDIA containing the Logitech Wireless Gamepad F710 for some USB-connected action and we were on our way! Not before getting those controls calibrated to our precise wave-riding calibrations right first though, you know we love our calibrations.

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.
Acer devices both called Iconia Tab, each of them then having a more specific name with either A100 or A500. We've got reviews of both of these devices as well as a full spec rundown so that YOU can make the right decision if the decision is indeed staying inside the Acer family for a tablet this Summer/Autumn. Will you go with the big-time 10-inch tablet, or the uniquely sized 7-inch tablet, both of them featuring Android Honeycomb?
Motorola Xoom and the ASUS Transformer we haven't heard anything regarding the Acer A500 Tablet. It was updated to Android 3.1 back in July but appears to be a little late to the 3.2 party. Users wont need to wait much longer because we may see the update in August.
