Who wouldn’t like to get that new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich firmware for your Acer Iconia Tab? In fact, Acer has already released one for the A200. Now, it’s time for Acer’s Iconia Tab A100 and Iconia Tab A500 to be upgraded. You will need to be a bit more patient though. That’s because you won’t get any until late April. Just don’t get too upset. After all, you only need to wait for a couple months more.
Anyways, you’d surely be delighted to know that the official Android 4.0 ICS build for the Acer Iconia Tab A100 and Iconia Tab A500 has recently been leaked over to XDA. The build appears to be pretty stable (with no known bug issues or whatsoever) but we aren’t really sure if it’s the final version. But before you go and flash the leaked build onto your tablet, we would like you to know that it will certainly break your slate’s root access. If you don’t really mind, you can download the Android 4.0 ICS source file for the A100, while the Android 4.0 ICS source file for the A500 can be downloaded. Better ask for help if you know nothing about custom ROMs. You could get your tablet bricked, you know?
Not too long ago, Acer released the Iconia Tab A100 with 7 inch LCD capacitive touchscreen and 600 x 1024 pixels of full screen resolution. At that time, the tablet ran on Google’s Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Meanwhile, the Acer Iconia Tab A500 was released last April and it currently flaunts its 10.1 inch LCD capacitive touchscreen with 800 x 1280 pixels of full screen resolution. Like the A100, the tablet ran on Android 3.0 Honeycomb. You can also rely on its 5MP rear facing camera with auto focus and LED flash that goes alongside with its 2MP front camera for video calls.
