    Hi folks, I recently purchased the Gateway A60 which has been called a rebranded Iconia, however while Iconia users are getting the 3.2 update I'm still stuck at 3.0 I've been unable to find any information from the Gateway site regarding any future of the tablet, or in most cases find information
    on it at all. Does anyone have any information where I might learn what, if anything I can expect for my tablet? I can't even submit a question on there support site as, while my product is recognized as the A60, there are no question "categories" for me to choose from, which is required to submit the question.

    Any direction any others may have come across regarding Gateway and their plans or direction for their tablet would be appreciated.

Late to get this tablet, i know, but the system wants to update to version 4.0 which is apprently not compatible for this tablet. anyone know how to find and install honeycomb 3.2 on this Gateway tablet?

    Exactly what do you mean by that?

    Is an Over The Air update trying to install and failing?

    The source code will not do you any good, unless you have the full Andorid SDK installed and are experienced in compiling kernels.

    Yes. An over the air update is trying but failing. Like I said before I am new at this. I believe the most recent update, from what I have read, for this tablet is honeycomb 3.2 while I am still stuck at 3.0
