Asus Transformer Ice Cream Sandwich update coming this month
Asus has promised its Transformer Android tablet will be upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich before the February is out.
Asus has promised its Transformer tablet will be updated to Android 4.0, aka, before the end of the month.
The Taiwanese company took to its UK Facebook page to keep fans in the loop, saying, "The TF101 [the Transformer] update is still expected in February."

The company also made mention of an update for the, which the company says is designed to "fix the reboot issues experienced by users after installing ICS". Asus says its tests indicate the update fixes that glitch.
I found a lot to love when I reviewed the first Transformer -- beyond the pleasing ker-chunk noise it makes when you slot the tablet into its keyboard dock, I was dead impressed by the build quality, battery life and low price.

Eesh. But on the bright side, Asusto release an 'unlock tool' for the modding community, and while the Prime has also been bothered by Wi-Fi issues, Asus has said are affected by this quirk.
Although Transformer owners will be impatient to try out Ice Cream Sandwich, I reckon Asus deserves praise for keeping fans informed. That's something.
