Acer brings Android 4.1 to four Iconia Tab models

An Acer spokesperson advises that Jelly Bean is coming to four Iconia Tab models this quarter.

The Iconia Tab A700 is the first Acer tablet to see Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Acer

Acer confirmed that an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update is in the cards for at least four of its Iconia Tab models.

The software update is coming to the Acer Iconia Tab A110 , Tab A210, and Tab A510 models, a company spokesperson recently said.

Each tablet will reportedly get the tasty OS treasure later this quarter. The Iconia Tab A700 , on the other hand, began seeing its own Jelly Bean rollout last week.

It's not all good news for Acer owners, though. The company rep says that the Tab A100, Tab A200, and Tab A500 will not see any 4.1 love.

Matters could be worse. This trio should still run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich; unlike other tablets, they won't be confined to Honeycomb .
