Acer Iconia Tab A700 Gets Official Jelly Bean Update
Acer has begun rolling out the Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) update for its newest Iconia Tab A700. The update, measuring around 332MB, will be available to users over the air (OTA).
If required, you can manually check for the Jelly Bean update on your tablet by heading to Settings > About tablet > System update. With the release of the Jelly Bean update, users could expect an improvement over its previous Android version on the Iconia Tab A700.
The update should bring Jelly Bean goodies such as expandable notifications, automatic resizable widgets, enhanced accessibility and more for Tab A700.
The Tab A700 that made its debut in August is powered by Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset with 1.3GHz Quad-core processor. It ships 1GB of DDR2 RAM and is paired with a ULP GeForce graphics processing unit. The 10.1in device sports an LCD capacitive touchscreen packing a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels.
It comes with internal storage options of 16/32/64GB and a micro SDcard slot with an additional memory space of 32GB. It features Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR wireless technology.
While the company has released the update for the 10.1in tablet, there is no word as to when it will roll out the update for its tablets such as Iconia Tab A100, A200 and A500.
Recently, Acer launched a 7in tablet, the Iconia Tab A110, that comes pre-installed with Google's latest operating system, the Jelly Bean. In the UK, the tablet will come with a price tag of £179.99. The 7in tablet seems to compete directly with the recently launched Nexus 7 as well as Amazon's Kindle Fire HD that comes in two versions, the 7in and 8.9in.
