Wouldn't you know it - not long after ASUS has to delay the Jelly Bean update for the Transformer Pad Infinity, Acer silently starts pushing the update to the Iconia Tab A700.

Considering there are zero details at this time, we have no idea what changes have been made, but hopefully Acer found a way to make this HD tablet run a little smoother this go around.

To see if this update is available on your device, you can head into Settings > About tablet > System update.

      Thanks for sending the tip, Matrino, but I didn't even click the link. I don't speak Dutch, so instead I grabbed the A700 and pulled the update myself. There's no need for us to source a site when we didn't even look at it.

      • Matrino

        The tip wouldn't be in your mailbox if the source hadn't published it. So, yeah in my opinion it matters. For the next story from another source I'll tip you by copying the complete text of the source in an email. So, you don't have to look at the link, right? Also, that you don't speak Dutch does not matter. It wouldn't be the first non-english source here.
        I really think it's somewhat disrespectful.

    Who had Acer as the second OEM to get JB on a tablet? *crickets*

    Some 'Butter' is the only thing this tablet was lacking!
    I can't wait to read more about this update!

    Wow, pretty unexpected. I have been in contact with Acer Malaysia, and also following others reports on XDA, the JB update for A510 was due only in December. At the end of the day, the A510 is basically the A700 with a lower-res screen. I hope the A510 gets the update sooner rather than later.

    I hope you'll update this post or the A700 review to let us know if the lag issues are gone.
