System update rolling out for the Acer Iconia, brings a market update and improved UI speed

Acer Iconia

The Acer Iconia A500 is getting a pretty widespread system update this evening — actually it’s getting two.  Users are reporting that they receive the first (7.014.01), and it’s quickly followed by version7.014.02.  Both are small (less than 10MB) files, and neither are Ice Cream Sandwich.  What the updates are bringing is welcome though, namely a change to the latest 3.4.4 version of the Android Market and it’s corresponding widget, and improved  [Read More…]
