The Acer Iconia Tab A500 is a 10 inch tablet which Acer has always said would run Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb one day. But for the past few months the company has been showing off the tablet with Google Android 2.x instead. Today the folks at Notebook Italia got a first look at the updated version of the tablet, complete with Honeycomb.

In a nutshell, it looks like the tablet has some custom software running on top of Android which lets you arrange your books, games, multimedia, and other apps and content. the tablet will also come with some media apps preloaded including Acer’s software, a Netflix app, an Acer LumiRead eBook app, and Zinio Reader.

The software may differ from region to region, but you can check out the Italian version in the video after the break. The 10 inch Android tablet features an NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor and it’s expected to go on sale in the US during the second quarter of 2011 when AT&T offers a 4G capable model called the Acer Iconia Tab A501.
