Developer gives a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich to the Asus Eee Pad Transformer
What about the Asus Eee Pad Transformer? Is there hope for some sugary software desert for users of this tablet, in the form of an Ice Cream Sandwich update? It is quite possible although the Transformer Prime will garner more resources from Asus than its older tablet. While the manufacturer might play favorites and give most of its attention to the newborn, the development community is never one to follow the rules and instead has been hard at work to port Android 4.0 over to the Transformer.
How successful has the effort been? You can actually judge for yourself by viewing the video below. One developer has Android 4.0 running an Asus Eee Pad Transformer, although there is no sound and the OS is slow and buggy. But it is a start. This is the beauty of having third party developers, hard at work to deliver software solutions to devices quicker than you might expect from the manufacturer.

No, I think it would be unfair for the slider and original Transformer not to get updated. They are both great devices with capable hardware.

i would be surprised if this and the Tab 10.1 didnt get it. those 2 alone make up the bulk of the android tablet sales. for the rest of the honeycomb tablets we should probably flip a coin or ask a magic 8 ball the answer to the ICS question.. :)
