Asus Transformer Prime to get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in January?
The fact that the Asus Tansformer Prime – which has yet to be released worldwide – will be updated to Android Ice Cream Sandwich is certainly not a surprise. We just didn’t know when this would happen until now.
According to Digital Versus, Asus “has confirmed that” it’s going to provide an Android 4.0 update for the Transformer Prime next month, in January. If this turns out to be true, customers over in the UK could get the tablet with ICS from day one. But that will probably not be the case in the US and Canada, where the Transformer Prime should be released before the end of the year (although we’re hearing its launch in Canada may have been delayed).
The Asus Transformer Prime currently runs Android 3.2 Honeycomb, and is the world’s first tablet to be powered by a quad-core processor (Nvidia Tegra 3). Prices for the tablet will start at $500 (32GB version).
