The Acer Iconia A500 is getting a pretty widespread system update this evening -- actually it's getting two. Users are reporting that they receive the first (7.014.01), and it's quickly followed by version7.014.02. Both are small (less than 10MB) files, and neither are Ice Cream Sandwich. What the updates are bringing is welcome though, namely a change to the latest 3.4.4 version of the Android Market and it's corresponding widget, and improved UI speeds -- including the keyboard. The full changelog hasn't hit Acer's website as of the time of this writing, so it's possible there may be more goodies inside and we'll find them as we go along.
As for root, the jury is still out if these updates will remove it and/or make the current methods to root stop working. If you're on the root train, maybe you should wait for your favorite developer to catch up.
