Asus, Samsung, and HTC are among those manufacturer that already come out with some nice words about bringing Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to their product lineup. Meanwhile, there is still no official explanation from other big names like ZTE, Lenovo, LG, or Acer about this.
Talk about Acer, this Taiwan based company has come out with lot of good Iconia Tab series. Some of you might probably own Iconia Tab A200, A510, or A700 by now. I know that all of them might look and feel the same since there are no huge difference on the hardware specs. But still, there are lot of customers interested to invest their money on Iconia Tab since it come with Android 4.0 or recently upgraded with one. But since Jelly Bean officially announced two weeks ago, there’s a big question hanging around the web right now. When will Acer release Android 4.1 update and which Iconia Tab that will receive it?
Thanks to our Dutch friends from Tablet Guide, we manage to figure it out that some of Acer Iconia Tab are already confirmed to get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update this year. Off course since this is not an official statement, we still unable to pull out any complete list of Acer’s tablet that will taste Jelly Bean this year. But we can conclude one thing for sure right now. An Android 4.1 update is cooking at Acer’s lab!
So, does this mean that all Iconia Tab owners can sleep sound right now? Well, it depends. Based on Tablet Guide report, Acer said that “not all” Iconia Tab will receive Jelly Bean treat. This is mean that there’s still a good chance that they will abandon older series like A100 and A200 with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. If that really happen, you shouldn’t be too disappointed at all. I am pretty sure that there are lot of developers that will take care of your tablet. For example, CyanogenMod team is now reported to build CyanogenMod 10 ROM (based on Jelly Bean) to provide the OS for as many non-supported device as possible! Amazing isn’t it?
