Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime and Ice Cream Sandwich on video

Read on for an official video of the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime running Android Ice Cream Sandwich.

What do you do with the world's most clunkily named tablet? Stick the world's most clunkily named software on it, of course! Read on for an official video of the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime running Android Ice Cream Sandwich.

The video comes courtesy of Nvidia, the big brains behind the quad-core Tegra 3 chip that powers the Transformer Prime.

Here we see Ice Cream Sandwich on the Prime's 10-inch screen, showing off Android's new transition effects, drag and drop folders, 1080p video and waterborne racing game Riptide.

Ice Cream Sandwich is the latest version of Google's Android software. It unites the previous phone-focused Gingerbread generation with the tablet-tastic Honeycomb, working equally well on both phones and tablets. Apps designed for Ice Cream Sandwich also work on both your phone and your slate.

The Transformer Prime won't run Ice Cream Sandwich when it launches in the US, but it should do by the time it arrives on these shores next year.

The first device to hit shops with Ice Cream Sandwich on board is the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, a promising phone with just one minor drawback: you can't hear anything coming out of it. Here's hoping the problem is fixed soon so we can all enjoy Ice Cream Sandwich.

The Transformer Prime is a tablet that plugs into a nifty keyboard dock to become a laptop, aiming to give you the best of both worlds. Click here for our official photos, showing the two parts slotting neatly together.

With stunning lines and sharp handling, the F-type S Coupe is an excellent sports car, and as impractical as a true sports car should be.
