Asus Transformer Prime getting Android 4.0 today
It wasn't expected to be available until this Thursday, January 12th, but Asus has surprised us all and released the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Transformer Prime starting today. If you've been watching our live blog of the event, you'll have seen the news already, but at around 4:35 PM PST, NVIDIA President and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang announced that the Asus Transformer Prime would be getting the Ice Cream Sandwich update today. 

This officially makes the Transformer Prime the first Ice Cream Sandwich tablet on the market (you know, except for anyone with an alpha Cyanogenmod 9 ROM loaded up.)

What good is this if the GPS on the prime doesn't work properly due to the metal case Asus used for the tablet? They have acknowledged this is a major flaw yet refuse to do anything about fixing it. It'll just be another half baked tablet just as the Moto Xoom was/is

Just updated to ICS and I am using it now. I like what I am seeing so far! Browsing and speed in general seems to be much better.

Jan 18 - after 6 weeks of waiting on my Champagne Prime, Best Buy cancelled all orders. I was told that ASUS failed to honor their contractual obligations to Best Buy. Best Buy had not received any Champagne Primes in over the a month. Query 1: Does this have anything to do with HASBRO? Query 2: Does this have anything to do with all of the faulty WiFi units showing up in Europe now? Query 3: If the first two questions are no, then why didn't they post-pone Europe's distribution a few weeks and take care of the American market. The CEO of ASUS promised pipelines filled in the US by now and hasn't honored this. He denied, at first, a problem with WiFi and a problem with the GPS too. He has forced a flawed product on the consume with no regrets.He shows 'no' concern for the consumer, only getting distribution. This will eventually be their downfall if he isn't replaced immediately. The only good thing he has done, is opened the eyes of the real techno companies and we'll see Apple, Samsung, Toshiba, Motorola respond with a vengeance in a few short months. I ordered two and received one. If not for the fact that I also bought so many accessories for the ASUS - I'd write them off now. But the first company to come out with a similar tablet has my business! I hope tat Amazon, Best Buy and others boycott ASUS in the future.
