Acer Iconia Tab A500's Android 4.0 update shows early

updated 07:25 pm EDT, Wed April 25, 2012

OTA update arrives ahead of schedule

Android 4.0 has arrived just a couple of days earlier than previously billed for Acer's Iconia Tab A500, according to reports from Android Central. The OS update had been scheduled to arrive April 27.

Acer has been rolling out the OS update for its Iconia line of tablets since February, with the Iconia Tab A200 first in line. That update fixed a number of bugs in the A200's operation, improving browser responsiveness and microphone functioning, along with the features Android 4.0 itself brings.

The A500 was scheduled to receive an update this Friday, but users in the Android Central forums report that their devices received an over-the-air update as of this morning. There has been no word yet on whether the update has also been applied to the seven-inch A100, which is also scheduled to be updated in April.
