    I just received a long update to the system. Prior to this in Settings, Device Information it shows Product SKU = 3G, and Model ID A501. Now it shows wifi and A500.

    I am late for work so haven't been able to see any other changes.....

    Anyone else get an "Update" from A501 to A500?

    After the update if you look at about tablet-battery it now only shows display. No more cell or anything else.

    Don't think anyone in the states actually had a A501 to begin with- in the US we have A500's. Some were mislabeled as A501's and now that has been corrected in the new software update.
    True A501's (the European version of the A500) have an actual internal cell modem and a slot with a functioning card receiver inside for a sim card.

    Now if you imported a A500 to the USA that was built for sale in Europe- that may actually be a real A501.
