Acer does not plan to update the A500 to Jelly Bean.

completely unacceptable...acer is not a good company....very very poor...even the asus tf101 the first transformer will be updated to jelly bean...guess when all the owners of a500 upgrade to a different brand they'll wake up

Shame, really.  The A500 was one of the best tablets when you rolled it out...and you've fumbled things each step of the way, from locking it down tight to not providing Android 4.1.x or later.

If this is beyond limits, I'd hate to think what the limits are...

RE Buying Samsung: I'll probably consider ASUS.  They're the most open and the most forward thinking of the bunch in the Android tablet space.

 

To Acer: If you're upset about me talking about the competition in your forums, you should contemplate the why of what I'm doing.  I used to tell people this was a good choice.  But, with the expensive, limited docking station (What?  No HDMI out of it? That's CLUMSY!), the missed timelines on firmware, etc. you're more the non-play these days.
