    4.3 is almost pointless, but I hope at least Android 4.4 will be released.

     

    Acer must do it. They can't abandon a tablet with less than 6 month old.

     

    Or next time I will think 10 times before buy an Acer product.

    I hope we can get updates. Otherwise as you said ACER may lost customer confidence. Updates very important for android devices and i believe Acer already known that.

    Have been a buyer of Acer laptops for years and now android tablets, I believe in the brand and hope that they will continue to roll out updates for their products. The tablet market is fiercely competitive and Acer have to look after their customers.

    Is there anybody in this Forum that make a comment about that requests.

    Or we will tell to each other very nice wishes Smiley Happy

  • Acer! We want android 4.4 (kitkat). Please release it immediately...

  • BluforceBluforce Posts: 4Member

    No 4.4? Ok. This is really disappointing.

     

    I'll sell my A1-810 as soon as possible.

    Good bye Acer. Never again.

    Do you do the same thing with your phones (sell it and swear off the vendor) when they stop doing upgraded OS versions after about a year? My Motorola Bionic is stuck with Jelly Bean and that is well over a year old, yet I'm not going to swear off Motorola because of it... It's costs a lot of money and resources to do an upgrade, with no payback when done on an older model.

    I had a Nexus One, now a Nexus 4.

    Before you ask, I didn't buy a Nexus 7 because i like 4:3 ratio for tablets.

    Cost a lot of money also buy a tablet that 6 month after is abandoned by Acer (in this case)
  • viskondeviskonde Posts: 3Member

    Just like me.

     

    I was between the Nexus 7 and any 8" tablet.

     

    I decided to give a try to acer because I really liked the 4:3 ratio.

     

    Now i know it was a bad choice.

    I knew I would not be getting updates in one week like a Nexus, but I hoped to at least have a 4.3 or 4.4 update about 6 months after its release.

    This tablet didnt recevied ONE single update. was released with 4.2.2, and will stay that way forever.

     

    Just sad. Will stop recomending Acer and for sure will not buy another device from them.

    Unfortunely, with Android, or you go Nexus or you better go to the dark side.

    Has anyone heard anything since this article?

  • billseybillsey Posts: 3,795ACE Pathfinder

    Nope, and I imagine we won't hear anything more until the finally offer it. They aren't likely to give us much insight into the development process, be cause it's too easy to slip a milestone date and fill the ether with compliants.

  • A1GirlA1Girl Posts: 9Member

    Just saw this Post and Acer-Cory told them the A1-830 is getting an update so maybe they will update A1-810 too. 

  • potroubpotroub Posts: 9Member

    After Talking to Acer then Google Android's team...that shoot me right back at Acer...Saying it is to them to make all updates available ...for now they are locked by Acer team.
    Even thought they want you to believe that they have not finished testing KitKat with Iconia A1-810...
    They are lying...because...not only they are not doing any test...they just stopped supporting this device and locked it to Jelly Bean 4.2.2.
    They will not confirm you this over the phone or on Chat .
    But clearly Acer will not update this tablet like the advertisement said when we all purchased the unit.

    Nothing in the hardware would prevent the unit to get KitKat...and even the new L upcoming...(asides from certains feature that won't work because of it's hardware limitations)

    So...Acer is fooling us... +

    Be aware that the Heartbleed fault issue for security is not protected from when on Jelly Bean 4.2.2.
    Google advises all to update to the latest KitKat 4.4.3 to get protection from the Heartbleed.

    Hi all,

     

    I just want to confirm that the A1-810 is scheduled to receive the KitKat (Android 4.4) along with the A1-830. That has not changed at this time. While I am not able to share any timelines at this point, as soon as information is available to be shared publicly we plan to do so. Here is the post a made a couple weeks confirming that the A-810 is scheduled to receive an update. http://community.acer.com/t5/Android-Tablets/when-the-upgrade-to-android-4-4-will-be-available-for-a1-810/m-p/256708#M17088

     

    Hope this helps,

    Cory

    It is very kind to tell us again to wait patiently...
    But you guys should learn that if you use the word schedule then a date should be listed in your thread.

    At the moment, we are still floating points...with no idea about how secure we are using our tablets.

    Still until the update happens we are left with the issue of the Heartbleed breach in 4.2.2.
    Why not give us a little security.

    «Marc Rogers, principal security researcher at Lookout Mobile, a provider of anti-malware software for Android phones, said some versions of Android 4.2.2 that have been customized by the carriers or hardware manufacturers have also been found to be susceptible.» - Taken from (http://arstechnica.com/security/2014/04/vicious-heartbleed-bug-bites-millions-of-android-phones-other-devices/)

    Your agenda should not be helping the agenda of hackers...
    Don't let any of your users think of this kind of affiliation.

    Of course one would need to really have an enemy to be such target of hacking using the Heartbleed exploit.
    But in these days of economical and political uncertainties it is not impossible.

    Thanx for making a better effort to secure us and keeping our OS up to date...

    Using this tool

    It clearly shows that our devices are vulnerable
    As It states :

    The version of OpenSSL on your device is affected by the Heartbleed bug (1.0.1.c) 


    So please secure our devices as soon as possible.
    An update will correct this situation unless google delivers a patch wich they are not to bound to release because they suggest to update all devices to KitKat.

    Hopefully today...your team will secure us a little !!!

    I really hope so...because... none of us out there have secured devices at the moment.
    None.

    You can scan your own devices to see if you are secure or not... If you have an Iconia A1-810 running Jelly Bean 4.1.1 or 4.2.2 you are affected.

    Thanx

    There is a big urgent issue pending...?

    Why is your team, if you say that you are testing KitKat...are not speeding up the time to do so...in order to secure it's users ?

    What is the truth...

    I do not know any computer makers that treat their user like this.

    Microsoft, Google, Linux etc... IBM DELL HP ... I do not recall or know any of these business... to put a huge delay to put out the corrective patch...to our OS...and allow our update as suggested by Google Androir Team !!!


    You are the first ever to not secure us !!!

    They may wait for the android 5.0 came out, so they could told us to wait for the 5.0 update. Just let us keep waiting, or tell us to purchase a new tablet with the new android system. 

  • potroubpotroub Posts: 9Member

    I doubt that Android L (5). will be released soon enough and really not sure the A1-810 will be getting this update in it's full brew.

    Incompatibility will be higher than with previous Android version for this tablet. Not a 100% sure. But it sure does look like it.

     

    As for now the réal issue is the security breach until we receive KitKat we are not protected at all.

     

     

    Please Acer Team. We need this update to use our device securely.

    Thanx

    Thank you Acer!

  • potroubpotroub Posts: 9Member

    Sounds like good news...
    And it's about time.

    I just checked on my side...but still no update available for me...
    I can't wait to get it.... As I really wish My Device Was Secured From The HEARTBLEED breach

    Thanx AcerTeam...if you good just accelerate the rollout of this update for all right about now...
    We need it bad

    Thanx

  • potroubpotroub Posts: 9Member

    I just finished red the posted article...

    It does not say anything more that we...know

    there is still no dates for the Rollout of KitKat 4.4.4

    You just received an update for 4.2.2. as it will give insights that kitkat is on the way...

    But you cannot say that we are closer to KitKat...
    Still we will have to wait...

    And really Acer Team what is the deal with not securing all of it's user's devices ?
    Please make it available soon...we are all at Risk with HEARTBLEED breach and it is uncool...since January 2014...

    7 Months of uncertainty is too much

    Please do something

  • danyroluxdanyrolux Posts: 3Member
