My poor Acer Iconia A500 Tablet has been looking for the 3.1. I seemed everyone else was getting it. And so, it finally arrived! The Android OS regulary checks for system updates. It finally “found” one – the big one – from 3.0 to 3.1. Either Acer or Google releases their updates in waves. I just had to wait for the right wave.
So what do I think? It feels faster. It now supports Exchange email syncing. Still no Netflix or Hulu. Citrix app almost works – I can see icons now. Citrix is what I use to run any app I want (Quickbooks, Word, Excel, etc.) from the office.
The OS now feels more mature. I think it’ll be a good alternative to the iPad at some point – but it’s still a bit green – and not in the energy efficient way.
