Update: We've spoken to Acer about the Honeycomb 3.1 update and it seems that users in India will only get their hands on it sometime in mid-August OTA. So that means there's some more waiting for us. For now, those who haven't yet updated thier devices will receive an update to 3.01. We'd like to thank all our readers for sending in their comments about the upadte.

About two weeks ago we heard that the Acer Iconia Tab A500 was  going to get the latest Honeycomb update sometime in July. In doing so, at least after the update, the tablet’s high-end specifications will be utilized in the right manner, so we hope. Well July is here and it looks like Acer has kept their promise of delivering the update.

The goodness inches closer...

The goodness inches closer…

According to AndroidOS.in, the update should bring a leap in system performance. Better support for USB and Bluetooth devices is also expected.  Acer has balanced the focus with support for HTML5 video content and there’s also support for additional video file formats, as well. The goodness doesn’t stop there though, there’s improved Wi-Fi networking and last but not the least, there’s support for Microsoft Exchange server, as well.

That’s definitely a whole lot of improvements that’s being promised. The update is globally available OTA, but we hope it’s also available for the Indian community. If you’ve got the notification for a software update, do let us know whether you’ve found any improvement in the performance. Since we have the product in our labs, we checked for the OTA update however there was none. We'll keep checking of course spo stay tuned.
