Android 4.0 coming to Acer’s 7, 10 inch tablets next week

Acer has unveiled plans to begin rolling out an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich software update for two tablets soon. The Acer Iconia Tab A100 7 inch tablet and 10 inch Iconia Tab A500 will be the company’s next Android 4.0 tablets.

Both tablets feature 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processors, while the A100 has a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display and the A500 has a 10 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel screen. The larger tablet has 1GB of RAM while the smaller model has just 512MB.

Acer released the two tablets in 2011, and while the company has already released Android 4.0 for the newer Iconia Tab A200 tablet and launched a new quad-core A510 tablet with Ice Cream Sandwich preloaded, neither of the first two Acer tablets had received the official update yet.

The software updates for both tablets are scheduled to start rolling out in the US on April 27th. Updates should be available in other regions including Canada, Mexico, and Brazil in April or May.
