Unfortunately the tablet doesn’t have Home, Menu, and Back Buttons, which is a requirement for Honeycomb.

The Acer Iconia Tab A500 is an Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet featuring a 10.1” responsive touchscreen display and a 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 SoC dual-core CPU. It comes with integrated Verizon 4G LTE connectivity, a full-sized USB port, a micro USB port, a dedicated charging socket, and a dock connector. Unfortunately the tablet doesn’t have Home, Menu, and Back Buttons, which is a requirement for Honeycomb. However, users can swipe the corner of the screen to access on-screen buttons. There’s also a rear-facing camera with LED flash. Reviewers say it performs especially well with 3D graphics, which isn’t surprising considering its Nvidia components.
