Acer is working on Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) updates for some of its devices
Reporters from the Dutch Website TabletGuide seem to have spoken to few Acer executives over the phone and the conversation freeze on “the company’s tablets will be updated to Android 4.1”.
Right after the Google Nexus 7 launch, this Android 4.1 aka jelly Bean has been spreading over the net like anything. Although there’s no official updates announced yet, a lot of smartphone manufactures have announced Jelly Bean updates to their devices.
HTC has confirmed updates for One XL, One X and One S; ASUS for the Transformer Pad, Pad prime and Infinity; Toshiba for the AT200 Excite 10 LE and AT300 Excite 10; Samsung on the Galaxy SIII and Galaxy SII. Intel too is said to be in works with Google for porting Android 4.1 to their low atom based processors.
Sony, however has denied of any such upgrades to they Xperia family; not at least in the near future.
And now, Acer seems to be in the queue as well. Reporters from the Dutch Website TabletGuide seem to have spoken to few Acer executives over the phone and the conversation freeze on “the company’s tablets will be updated to Android 4.1”.
This however is not concrete information and TabletGuide is the only source to look into. Keeping this in mind, it is also to be noted that Acer might not have plans for all of it’s devices for this update. However, Iconia Tab A110, A200, A510 and A700 have specs good enough to be tested and passed for the Jelly Bean upgrade.
The Iconia Tabs A100 and A500 have recently received Android 4.0 (IceCream Sandwich) updates only in April and may/may not be scheduled for a Jelly Bean updates so early. We have a ray of hope here seeking example of Samsung. Shortly after an ICS update for the galaxy SII was announced OTA, the Jelly bean upgrade news is out!
