Acer Iconia Tab A500 and A100 Android 4.0 ICS updates coming in April

Acer has just issued an update to ease the minds of all the owners of the Iconia Tab A500 Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet. Over on the Acer New Zealand Facebook page they have announced the A500 tablet should see an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in April.

Acer Iconia Tab A700 gets official, priced in Europe

2012's crop of high-end tablets is shaping up to be nothing short of mind-blowing, and Acer is keeping pace with its competitors thanks to the Iconia Tab A700. After teasing it at CES 2012, the tablet is now official after being unveiled in a press event in Hamburg. The Tegra 3-powered 1080p Ice Cream Sandwich tablet is the equal to just about anything we've seen thus far, but one thing concerns us is the price: how will Acer keep its reputation as a low-cost manufacturer while cramming in suck high-end parts? Apparently that concern is justified. According to German site Tablet Test, the A700 base model will have a price tag of €549, about $720 in United States dollars.

The A510 gets Nvidia's Tegra 3 system on a chip, with four cores running at a reported 1.3Ghz each. Other than that, you get the same shell, 1280x800resolution and ten-inch screen. Oh, and one more thing: Ice Cream Sandwich running out of the box. The tablet was shown off at a pre-CeBIT presentation in Hamburg, and German site Tablet Community (no relation) got a good look.

Coming in at a pretty fair price is Acer's latest entry into the ever-growing Android tablet market. This is the Acer Iconia Tab A200 and along with it comes some slightly better looks and a thinner design than their first attempt at a tablet. The A500 and A100 looked quite similar but were a little chunky. Acer aims to change that with this new tablet although its nothing compared to the A700 we've seen lately.
