    ... For the community, Do updates roll out at the beginning of the month or could it be any time? From your experience with multiple devices.

    No, the A500 will NOT get Jelly Bean (officially from Acer that is).

    As others have mentioned, your best bet at this point is to root and get a Jelly Bean build by thor.

    You know that really "STINKS:" as others have said the a500 isn't that old, I got mine April of this year and the Tegra3 hadn't even came out yet
    This reeks of a certain software compinies way of doing business, Bring out a new OS but don't support upgrafing from the one before the last just to force others to buy the Full Version more $$$ don't ya know .
    Then after doing this twice and it not luring many from an OS Version three back, their newest one duwe out thgis month will support the OS Version that is now four back
    I'd say it is Acer's way of forcing those who really want Jelly Bean to buy their latest and greatest tablet!!!
    Best part of it is the ones who are now buying the a700 with ICS and is upgradeable to Jelly Bean will be out in the cold just like us a500 owners are now
    WELL the jokes on them
    I wonder how many other Tablet makers will be doing the same to their loyal customers.?

    This really stinks. I was going to upgrade to an a510 but then read about the thermal issues in both the a510 and a700 so have steared clear. At this point I'm leaning towards an Asus or Samsung if acer don't pick up their game
