LATEST: Android Honeycomb 3.1 update for Acer Iconia

Update delivers increased system performance with enhanced peripheral support and enterprise support

Acer Iconia consumers can now access the latest Google Android Honeycomb 3.1 update on their tablets.

The update delivers increased system performance with enhanced peripheral support and enterprise support, while offering support for USB and Bluetooth input devices.

Other key features include HTML5 video content support, additional video file format support, more robust Wi-Fi networking, an updated set of standard apps and greater enterprise support to Acer’s Iconia A500 Tab.

Acer Computer Australia smart handheld devices product manager, David Niu, said all Iconia Tab A500 owners will receive a notification prompt of the update.

“From browsing the Web to taking advantage of the USB support for mouse, cameras and even gamepads, using the updated OS will become more seamless with new multimedia formats supported and business connectivity improvements,” he said.

The update also provides greater enterprise support and email accounts manageability.

Google Android Honeycomb 3.1 improvements also include: UI transition animation refined with smoother transition to and from the apps list, resizeable home screen widgets, proxy and IP configuration backed up and restoration across system updates and resets and Microsoft Exchange server support (ActiveSync protocol).

06/07/11 UPDATE: Due to numerous comments and some confusion surrounding the update, ARN contacted Acer, which confirmed that the current update in Australia is Android Honeycomb 3.1. The company product manager said 3.0.1 was a FOTA update back in May and that the 3.1 update will only show after the 3.0.1 update has been applied properly.

Acer commented that in maintaining the server balance, the device lists (Australian version) are updated to the server in batches and intends to complete it shortly. As such, some users should already have received the update.
