ASUS Confirms Ice Cream Sandwich for the Transformer

According to the droves of email that invaded our inbox, ASUS has just tweeted something sweet. And by sweet I do mean Ice Cream Sandwich related. They’ve confirmed through Twitter that their popular Android tablet – the Eee Pad Transformer – will be getting Ice Cream Sandwich. “Stay tuned for updates,” they say. We’ll certainly be doing that. [Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]

    Considering how diligent ASUS has been with updates, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Transformer get it before the Xoom.

    • Magus2300

      True, but I hope my Xoom gets it in a timely manner as well. ……….. I know, I know. You can stop laughing now. =/

        Haha, I hope so too, my friend… I hope so too :)

      So very very glad I got my Transformer instead of a Xoom. The Euro Xoom is still on 3.1. That would have driven me nuts.

    Finally I picked a device that gets support!!!!! Usually if I get a phone or computer it is always the last to get updates the others are getting. I’m looking at you HTC Thunderbolt!

  • Jesse Hamlin

    Not only is the transformer the best and cheapest tablet on the market, it gets updates quickly!

    Isnt honeycpmb better then ics? The only reason for ics was to bring honycomb phones.

    • http://www.phandroid.com Quentyn Kennemer

      There are some new optimizations and features being brought over to the tablet side as well. ICS is better than Honeycomb since it’s Honeycomb with more features.

      Think that ICS brings hardware accelerated graphics to the UI, which as far as i know isnt supported in honeycomb. That means even more sweet swiping in the homescreens :D

    Isn’t ics also designed to optimize the dual cores of devices. I though they said something about that in the debut of the nexus phone, I may be wrong but hopefully it will come soon to the transformer and hopefully my Atrix will receive it at some point as will.
