Question [Q] Acer Iconia Tab a501: ICS Update

Hey... Anybody know the scheduled date for official ICS update on Acer Iconia Tab a501? The tab unpacks with an official app "Iconia Tab Enhancement", which claims in the Play Store to be required for ICS update for a501.

Let's discuss any ICS related updates (including new stable ICS ROMs) on Acer Iconia a501.

I KNOW THIS FORUM IS FOR a500. I DONT SEE ANY FORUM FOR a501, AND MOREOVER SINCE BOTH MODELS ARE ALMOST SAME, I THOUGHT COULD BE DISCUSSED UNDER a500. POSSIBLY ONE OF YOU ARE AWARE ON THE ANSWER TO THE ABOVE QUESTION!!
THANKS GUYS!

Agreed. The A501 section is needed. So much A500 fat to chew to find A501 relevant info.
Almost the same but A501 uses cell data with SIM cards.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but according to this link on Acer's site no update of the 501 is planned:

Doesn't say anything about the rest of the world...
America seems to sell through telco's so there would be a problem there.. But I bought an A501 without being stuck to a provider in Australia.
I believe you can buy an A501 outright without being stuck using a providers own unique brand of android...
I'd like to know if Acer(the rest of the world) is going to release an ICS update soon... There has been a leaked A501 ICS rom so hope Acer get their finger out of their respective bum and release to the A501 community soon...
