ASUS Eee Pad Transformer to Get Ice Cream Sandwich by Early February


After the extremely fast and desirable ASUS Transformer Prime got its Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade this week during CES, owners of the original threw their hands up saying “WTF ASUS.” Well, the Transformer Prime is definitely getting the update but we now have a very specific window to look forward to. Android Police was told that the update would be out by early February meaning you might not have to wait more than a month to get your Ice Cream on. We all know that things can change at the drop of a dime, though, so don’t be too vexed if things don’t go as planned.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. I would think that since the Asus EEE Pad has been out longer they would have had MORE time to work on ICS and that it would have hit before Prime.

    1. LOL! 
      Hit BEFORE a new tablet they are about to release?
      They are in the tablet selling business not the tablet upgrade business. 
      When you buy a product you are NEVER GUARANTEED any updates. 
      I think you should be happy you are getting a free update. 

      1. A crass response… but an accurate one nonetheless ;)

      2. I don’t think I should be “happy”.  I bought the tablet BECAUSE they promised an upgrade; they simply didn’t say when.  Had they never said they were going to upgrade, I would not have bought it.

    (Also, the Phandroid article could be clearer – it is the TF101 that will be getting ICS).

  3. Yeah we should expect updates when the company says it. Step on down from that horse, it’s too high for you and your opinion.

  4. really great to hear, cant more to upgrade my transformer

  5. Remember Samsung Epic and the froyo upgrade?

  6. Asus is a shit company tech support blows. Them locking the bootloader changing encryption keys on tablets that have no worries from carriers worry about hacker attacks on there network. But one thing about Asus there smart at selling shit so of course there going to push ICS on the prime way before the first one. Its strictly a business move that’s all the longer wait equals to more sales on the prime when the first one sales are leveling out. When both are in the same range quad core is the hope ASUS has that people will buy that one over the dual core. Asus had ICS sitting for the first one for a bit your telling me Asus didn’t make the software that different from the first one to the second one. Porting it by Asus developers was done the same time they be doing ICS with Prime strictly is a business move nothing more. For I personally don’t care cause I have a rooted Asus Transformer and Prime so whatever you not missing much at this time. Its worth the wait.

  7. This is great news! Asus has been so diligent with updates for the OG Transformer. Good to know we’ll get ICS… even though it’s not even a year old!
