The latest Asus Transformer Prime tablet PC has been in the news a lot recently, which was mainly when the device started to receive the new Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. Some users once upgrading their device found that it would suddenly reboot without warning. Today though we have news of the original Eee Pad Transformer, as Asus reveal the time frame for the ICS update for the older device.
A user of the device took to Facebook to ask how long it takes for Google to approve the version of Ice Cream Sandwich for the device. According to a report over at Electronista Asus replied that the Eee Pad Transformer will receive the new software in the middle of February.
This is not the first time a February date has been mentioned though, as earlier this month we told you that Asus had originally said it would be coming in January. The company then withdrew this date but an insider from the company then said the month of February will be when the update will be arriving.
The latest word from Asus didn’t go in to details about the rollout of the software, but the Wi-Fi only releases should allow users to upgrade in a matter of days now. The new operating system will bring the updated interface with improved speed, but it’s not thought to be as a major change seen with the phones.
Owners of the Transformer Prime saw the update released last week even though the device was released quite a while after the original device. They will see an even faster operating system thanks to the units Tegra 3 quad-core processor.
