Got an email this morning from Acer wanting me to buy their new Acer tablet with Windows 8 on it. I called and expressed my dismay on having bought an Acer A500 that is so old now that it is no longer supported: i.e. no upgrade to Jelly Bean. She confirmed there would be no Jelly Bean upgrade available for my A500. Too bad; I really liked my A500..until I upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich. All of a sudden things just no longer functioned. Now seems like the A500 has been abandoned. So it is now my turn for abandonment. See ya Acer!
