    Will there be a smaller update this week that will put Acer Ring on the Acer A500? If not, is there any other way to capture your screen WITHOUT ROOT?

    I'm not sure about the Acer Ring, but to capture your screen all you have to do is press both the "Power" and "Volume Down" buttons at the same time and hold it for about a second. It should then show that it took a screenshot.

    I contacted Acer support regarding the ring launcher and I was told that A500 will not be getting the ring launcher update.

    That doesn't surprise me. Not sure why everyone thinks we were suppose to get it - it's not like they said we would - seems to be all be based on assumptions by a500 owners.

    I attached a screenshot of the response I got from them, I actually had to write them 3 times because apparently I wasn't clear enough in my first couple of emails for them to even understand what I was asking.......seems to me like even the people at Acer support aren't really sure what's going to happen with the ring launcher and who exactly will be receiving it I hope it is something that Acer is going to update on the A500 though, would love to have it , oh well guess we wait and see .

    i tried to get a screen shot of the acer ring chat i had with acer support, but i was not able too and ended shutting of the tablet by mistake... anyhow... i was very clear in that i was asking about the acer ring launcher and if it was going to be added to the a500 iconia tab... again, they replied " yes, you willl be getting that update. " who knows... i love tab with or without the ring... hopefully it will be a positive that we do get it... best wishes to all....

    Thanks for that. I hadn't read that when I posted.

    EDIT***

    Although one could argue that the features in PR only refers to the a200. I'm not saying it says that, I'm just saying one could argue that in terms of "The update is being pushed to Acer Iconia Tab A200 customers over-the-air now" as opposed to " The Acer Iconia Tab A100 7-inch tablet and Acer Iconia Tab A500 10-inch tablet will both be updated in April." which is a separate update. So everything in the PR, one could argue, only refers to the a200.

    From the article:

    Acer says with the ICS update, the A500 and A100 will receive the Acer Ring launcher (seen above) that's already on the A200. The Ring is a customizable launcher that gives quick access to apps, bookmarks and volume controls. There's also an updated weather widget, and you'll have quick-launch app access from the lockscreen (again, like on the A200). There are improvements to photos and videos as well, including the ability to take still images while recording video.
    Th A200 already had the fatures.

    Right. The article says what everyone is saying, that the a500 was suppose to get it. That's how I read the PR as well.

    Well this is November! Did we get the ring or not? My table is updated to ICS but I don't have the ring. Did I miss something?
