The Android 3.1 Honeycomb update for the Acer Iconia Tab A500 has just been released internationally, but will be arriving in India only by the end of this month. According to company representative in India, the reason for the delayed arrival is one that we've heard before – most Indian service providers do not regularly support over-the-air (OTA) updates.
[RELATED_ARTICLE]However, it must be noted, a direct download of Acer's update, or desktop-based update software should have been made available instead, quite simply over Wi-Fi, if OTA is so hard. Especially since not all customers would necessarily insert an operator-tied 3G SIM in their device, especially in India, where contract based deals are not so popular. The update, when it arrives, will probably be via a Wi-Fi based method.
Android 3.1 Honeycomb brings a number of improvements over v3.0, including resizable widgets, increased USB peripheral support, improved task manager and app launcher, and more. Refer to our previous coverage for more information. Do also check out our Acer Iconia Tab A500 review.
