Asus Eee Pad Transformer Ice Cream Sandwich update delayed again
To the disappointment of the many Asus Eee Pad Transformer owners, the release of the tablet's Ice Cream Sandwich update has been pushed back for the bazillionth time. Without giving any explanation as to what caused the delay, a post on Asus of Singapore's Facebook page states that Android 4.0 ICS will reach the Eee Pad Transformer “within the Feb/March 2012 period”.

And that has to be really frustrating for those holding on to their trusty Asus Eee Pad Transformer. At first, the Ice Cream Sandwich update was scheduled for a January release. Eventually, its launch was moved to the beginning, and then to the middle of February. Obviously, the month is coming to an end, yet the Eee Pad Transformer still rocks Honeycomb instead of Android 4.0.

Hopefully, Asus will stick to its word this time and deliver the update on time instead of pushing its release even further and disappointing its loyal fans once more.

The XOOM was the first to ship with Honeycomb it would be a shame if the transformer got it first, they are just making sure there are no major issues, asus is still getting it in record time

not really frustrating, especially since you described it as "trusty" because Honeycomb works great and is beautiful. Sure an update to ICS would be great, but "frustrating"? NO
