With Android 5.0 likely on the docket for an introduction at Google I/O 2012, it's high time that existing tablet makers got on the ball and put their tablets on a fast track to Android 4.0. In fact, it's a little unnerving to think about how long Android 4.0 has been out, and how few devices it's on. Acer knows it, and they're planning to... Read more...

The carrier just announced... Read more...
