Asus Eee Pad Slider Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update starts rolling out in the US

The update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich has started rolling out to Asus Eee Pad Slider tablets sold in the US today. The update will naturally arrive over-the-air, and as such you’ll be able to install it directly on your tablet. After applying the update, your Slider will run software version 9.2.1.21.

While not nearly as successful as the Transformer series, the Eee Pad Slider brings a unique design to the Android tablet world, one that’s unlikely to be repeated (because of the aforementioned lack of success). So if you like your tablet to come with an integrated physical keyboard (or just hate docks), give the Slider another look.

With this rollout, all of Asus’ tablets now run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, just as the company promised last year. That’s something that its competitors (Samsung mainly) can’t brag about.

    I got it and it works fine so far. My Slider works as well as before with all of the new features. I’m relieved after the bad press from the Transformer upgrade posts I have seen over the last couple of months. I think they got it right this time, I’m glad I patiently waited and didn’t root to get ICS.I hope it stays stable and keeps on trucking, this device is wonderful.

    Just to add I upgraded and found the slider to be more responsive overall. They fixed the low sound level issue from honeycomb. I was havin random restarts bad under honeycomb and that stopped or at least reduced the number of restarts after the ICS upgrade. Overall it makes the slider an even better value.

    this new update is horrible my slider hasnt acted the same since. i always have to reset it. It runs so much slower. Applications will force close all the time . and the camera used to be able to take black and white photos now that option is gone .. I really want to switch it back. very very upset about this new update!
