But it seems like Honeycomb to ICS is about the same as the step from Froyo to Gingerbread. Anyone have anything to clue me in on that would make me "excited" to be getting it?
    I think you raise a valid point. Details are kinda sketchy for now until we actually see a final version of ICS on the market with devices running it. Google may have presented it, but things can still change at the last moment AND they haven't released the source code (yet). I think ICS is perhaps a more finished and polished version of Honeycomb but we'll have to wait and see.

    there are lots of features we do not have, face recognition for one the bump or beam will not work on our tablets because we dont have the hardware.
    This will be a worth while update, not just a keep up with the joneses, core improvements alone will be worth it.

    Let's hope we can keep updating the O/S in the iconia tab500. This device is sold for more than some laptops that can always get a new O/S release, even if you have to buy it. Acer needs to remain true to its PC heritage and accommodate tablet users this way. If so, Acer will remains a top choice for consumers. I love the Iconia. Please do not provide reasons to ever dislike it.

    Sweet. I read that ICS will have the GPU acceleration bit enabled by default instead of it being application specific. This hopefully means a better and faster browser...

    I would be really surprised if ICS came to the a500 in January. Not to sound jaded or anything but it just seems Acer has had a hard time keeping their update deadlines. I'm sure it will happen though. They really need to throw developers a bone - send us some leaks!

    Acer is in no way going to abandon the #1 selling tablet on the market. I would love to see the numbers on the tablets sold. I would venture to say it is right up there with their best laptops. We will see updates for a year or more. The A500 is such a capable little machine. Sure they have the new ones being released, but sales will be slow to build the volume of customers, as they have in the A500. Though I think Acer's tech support is like a black hole, their device engineers are taking good care of us with the updates.
