    A700 users in Germany are reporting that Jelly Bean is beginning to roll out. Although Acer has from the beginning said the A700 would be updated, there was no announcement at. Those who have the update report faster and smoother operation (no surprise there) and that their tablets no longer get uncomfortably warm.

    I hope they also put out a Jelly Bean update for my A500.

    I can report that the Jellybean update works a treat on the A700 here in the UK. I feel like I have a new Tablet that is butter smooth and actually works like it should have. Touch response seems way better. If Acer have now got a very nice tablet on their hands, so well done. I can't report as yet on the heat issues but there are now three power modes. Also animated wallpaper is very fluid whilst swiping screens. Need to play with it some more but over all I think it's a great improvement :)

    You guys are getting me excited....And that bothers me that my heart started pumping like that over an update for a tablet.

    So far over at XDA I'm reading a lot of people having issues with JB and the default crapware virus scanner. Should be an issue if it is disabled already, though...But in case you've not disabled it, I guess it makes the tablet a pain with all the error messages.

    Yeah, I just read a bunch of complaints about the default virus scanner is causing headaches.

    There is no default virus scanner in Android because there is no android viruses.

    Holly crap, you're right.

    Totally forgot that was snuck in by Acer, because I disabled it immediately, and can't imagine anyone in their right mind allowing anything by McAfee running on their tablet.

    Meh, I actually just realized I haven't disabled most of the bloat since I reflashed to stock in anticipation of JB a couple weeks ago. I need to get on that before the update rolls out to the US.

    Can anyone confirm that the JB update solves (or at least greatly reduces) the overheating issues?

    There are some great deals local to me for the A700, but I'm not spending my $$$ until I can confirm this.....

    Many owners have reported that the back of the tablet becomes VERY hot after gaming or watching videos on their A700.
    In some cases, the tablet gets so hot that it shuts down/restarts due to the heat.
