Acer Iconia Tab Getting ICS Goodness In Jan 2012?


Since Ice Cream Sandwich was officially announced just about a week ago, many people have been wondering "when will my device get ICS?" but more importantly, "when will by HoneyComb tablet get the ICS Scoop?". For those of you who own the Acer Iconia A500/A501 and/or the Acer Iconia A100/A101, you can start the countdown - you should be getting the ICS treatment as early as mid January 2012 according to sources.

This is pretty much in line with what the other tablet manufacturers such as Motorola and ASUS have been planning to bring ICS to their flagship tablets, namely the Motorola Xoom and the ASUS EEE Pad Transformer since the upgrade from HoneyComb to ICS should be pretty straightforward compared to upgrading an Android device from Gingerbread to ICS.

January 2012 isn't too far off the calendar, that's a healthy 2 1/2 months-ish away from today, so enjoy HoneyComb while you can because come mid-Jan 2012, all of you Acer Iconia owners will be getting the full ICS treatment.
