Default OpenGL2.0 ?

Is OpenGL2.0 supported on my Iconia, with ICS update? I tried to open my Google play music and none of my music shows up. It works fine on my Mopho. I don't listen to music on my tablet very much, but I'd like it to be available.
Google says I need to verify that my device supports OpenGL2.0.....but I don't have the patience to call Acer support.

Also.....how do it turn off the clicking sound my keyboard makes since my update.?

Not sure about the OpenGL2.0 stuff (sorry), but for the keyboard... you should see something just beside the space bar (I think)... press that (it's like a settings button or something)... you should then get the option to turn off the sounds

Per the SDK, OpenGL ES 2.0 has been supported on Android platforms since Froyo (Android 2.2). If you are interested in racing your a500, you can also see some OpenGL 2.0 benchmark test results for it at glbenchmark.com.

Now parts of OpenGL may be broken in ICS though. I recall seeing OpenGL exceptions and stack traces in the logs when looking into why Sims Free play is crashing. You may want to try using aLogcat to peek at your system log when you have the problem to see if there are any hints there. It may seem like mere gibberish, but it may also provide some clue.
