We recently told you about the upcoming Asus Eee Pad Transformer 2, with its quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 it is easy to forget its dual-core younger brother, but today we have heard that the original Eee Pad Transformer has booked a table and should be snacking on Ice Cream Sandwich sometime in the future.
This news was exclusively revealed by Pocket-Link, we don’t yet have any indication as to when an update will be rolled out to bring Android 4.0 ICS to the tablet / netbook hybrid, in fact all we have to go by is the following quote:
“Transformer will be getting update to ICS – but we can’t provide a schedule at this stage”
Currently the Eee Pad Transformer runs Android 3.2 Honeycomb, it should have no trouble running Ice Cream Sandwich as it features a 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, at least 16GB of local storage and a 10.1-inch display which outputs at 1280 × 800, that said when we got to see Ice Cream Sandwich at Google and Samsung’s recent press event a lot of the changes and optimizations seemed to be smartphone-centric.
As and when we hear of details regarding a launch date for the Eee Pad Transformer Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update we will keep you posted. We hope that ASUS don’t keep us waiting too long for this update, perhaps this could be the first-ever Ice Cream Sandwich – we are sure that this will cause a rise in sales.
What improvements would you like to see the next major firmware update bring to the Transformer?
