I woke up this morning to a prompt notifying me an update was available for my Acer Iconia Tab A100.  What a great surprise considering I purchased my acer a100 from for only 189.99 last week (with free shipping).  I am not paid or endorsed in any way by  They are just a great business that was started by an army veteren and gadget geek.  You can find more out about Ben Federman on the blog.

Mobile Web Development is becoming an integral part of internet marketing.  Updates like the 4.0.3 ICS update for the Acer Iconia Tab A100 (and A500) improve app performance and usability.

After doing a small preliminary update (some are reporting 17mb, mine was 23) clicking settings, about, and update software will start the update process.  Everything I have read has been positive, including my own experience.  Acer moved their update from early May to April 27th and actually started launching the update to users the past few days.   This is a great move from Acer as many manufacturers like HTC have committed to updating their devices, such as my evo 3D , but have no set date in sight.

So what does the update bring to the 4.0.3 update?
