    Thanks for the tip. A large update is coming to the list soon - as far as I remember a whole WHACKLOAD of devices have been confirmed to recieve ICS since my last update.

    Also, I'm going to be hosting a blog soon with the list among other things, for anyone interested. Of course, the list will continue to be updated here as well.

    Will that be available for the A100 as well?

    @Walkop: Hi , thank you for compiling this list, I want to ask you how much you recommend getting the Asus Transformer that you have? It will be on sale for $250 at Bestbuy for black friday (which means camping out from wednesday ) , how happy are you with it and/or would you buy a different model/vendor (except the Prime of course ), thanks in advance!

    When I talked to tech support, I only asked about the A500, but my guess would be that it will apply to the A100 as well.

    I would definitely recommend it. For that price, it is basically unbeatable - the versatality alone is quite good. I myself would most definitely purchase the Keyboard dock as well ($100 more). The screen is excellent, it is speedy, has a good selection of apps - and, again, the pricepoint is really good.

    The only complaints I have are the build quality (the rear is made of a slightly flexy plastic), and possibly the sound. Neither of these are dealbreakers, they are just the worst parts of the unit. When I say "worst", that is of course relatively speaking. Nothing on the unit is terrible, or really bad. The sound and build are just not the best on the market. But basically everything else is great.

    Myself, I really do like ASUS and their ideas for a tablet - but I also like Samsung. Those would probably be my two top brands (although I would choose the ASUS over Samsung still).

    I'm contacting Acer as we speak for a comment on the issue regarding the ICS update for the A500 and A100. Hopefully I'll get something better than "no comment" ;)



    Edit: I've contacted Acer. I'm awaiting a response.

    The body of the message is below.

    I recieved a response, although it was a bit...general.

    I replied asking for more clarification, so I'm just waiting for another response (hopefully more helpful).

    Acer just contacted me once more, answering my previous inquiry.
    I replied again, hoping to get a more specific answer:
    Their answer:
    So, it seems a bit automated, predefined - but it seems so far that the tablets may get an update, they are considering it, but they definitely aren't in the mood to confirm anything just yet.



    Also, Flash Player has been confirmed to be coming to ICS, even though mobile development has officially "ceased". Added to original post.

    That is sad. One can only hope that their response to aserious support question would be more informative.

    I completely agree. C'mon Acer, at least give us something...

    Perhaps they simply don't want to release that information yet; although it seems much more likely that they simply haven't reached a decision or want to avoid bad press associated with not providing the update. If they don't, a lot of A500/A100 owners will be quite up in arms, that's for sure.

    But some information, even if it's negative, is better than no information. Don't keep us in suspense, Acer ;)

    First time here, so I hope I do this right. I saw a post stating the A100/A500s would get ICS possibly in January '12.

    I emailed Acer support & asked when I could expect the update to ICS - Android 4. Here is their response:


    Thank you for contacting Acer America. My name is Abin and Badge Number GWSI661. I'll be happy to assist you.

    As per your mail, I understand that your Iconia is having some issue regarding Android updates.

    I have verified the serial number and found that it is covered under standard limited warranty.

    Please be informed that, we do not have the exact date of release of the updates, you will get a pop up regarding the updates when it is available.

    For further clarifications, please feel free to visit our web site http://support.acer.com/.

    Have a great day!

    Again, real vague although most of the messages I've recieved seem to be hinting at the fact that they may very well support the update. It's strange, really; c'mon, Acer, your customer support has got to be better than that!

    Oh well, maybe we'll get some more info later on.
