ASUS EEE Pad Transformer WIll Get ICS Shortly After Prime

The original ASUS EEE Pad Transformer TF101 is slated to get the Ice Cream Sandwich treatment sometime shortly after the new EEE Pad Transformer Prime TF201 gets its ICS upgrade according to ASUS. 

That means the expected release date is after January 12 and this is good news for those of you who own the original TF101 tablet like myself and we have been waiting very patiently for this new upgrade to arrive.

Lets hope this upgrade comes in before the end of the month (fingers crossed!). Here's some of the expected changes for the TF101 once it is upgraded to ICS:

  • Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3
