EeePad Transformer

Asus today announced that it is beginning to push its official Ice Cream Sandwich update to the original EeePad Transformer, just it had promised early last month. The OTA rollout of firmware will start today in Taiwan, with other markets set to receive the update"soon after." Asus has been known to be committed to updating its devices in a timely manner: its Transformer Prime tablet is already running Android 4.0, while the original Transformer saw timely updates to Honeycomb.

Although we will announce several new innovations at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week, we take great pride in delivering on-going enhancements and support for products that are well into their life cycle.

We'll keep our eyes peeled for the OTA to hit US shores, and of course we'll bring you up-to-the-minute coverage of Asus' presence at next week's MWC.

Asus begins pushing ICS to its EeePad Transformer today in Taiwan


Where has the professionalism gone with these tech companies? You're putting out and update today in Taiwan and you seriously expect people to be fine with "soon"....After the issues with this transformer and your CONSTANT issues with your graphics cards in your gaming computers, I'm done with you Asus...You put quantity over quality and I'm sick of it... That quantity of quality statement seems to apply to a lot of tech companies anymore....HTC...puttin out 15 phones a year minimum all with SH*T software.

Wow, that's a lotta rage... It's a standard process of rolling out an update of such scale in phases. It makes it much easier to deal with potential issues. If the OTA in Taiwan goes good, "soon" will actually be soon.

I bought my transformer last night and am looking forward to the update to ICS. So far I have had no issues with my unit and thank the quality is superb. But I will admit I did not purchase the Prime because of the issues it has had with wifi and gps.
