Asus Eee Pad Transformer Getting Ice Cream Sandwich Update this Month

Taiwan based consumer electronics maker Asus has confirmed that its flagship tablet device, Asus Eee Pad, will be fed with the much awaiting Ice Cream Sandwich update some time towards the end of the current month.

The revelation was made by the company on its UK Facebook page. Apparently, Asus was trying to connect to all those users who were growing impatient over the delayed launch of the update.

"A few of you have asked for a specific date on the ICS update for TF101. We don't have an exact date yet but it should be this month. Our engineers are all back from their Chinese New Year celebrations so we will have an up to date schedule shortly," the company stated on its Facebook page.

Asus Eee Pad Transformer, right from the first day of its existence - which was March 25, 2011, has emerged as one of the most sought after Android HoneyComb powered tablet around today.

The device is already known for its excellent IPS screen as well as a pretty sophisticated NVidia Tegra chip. So it is highly likely that the addition of Android 4.0, commonly referred to as the Ice Cream Sandwich, should contribute immensely towards beefing up its position in the global tablet market.
