Ice Cream Sandwich Update for Asus Transformer Prime Pushing Out Today!

Pinch me; I must be dreaming! About a week ago, Asus gave word that the Transformer Prime would receive Google’s latest tasty treat on the 12th. In a surprise move, Asus started the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich roll-out today to lucky device owners worldwide!

Barring strange budget tablets that no one really wants, the Transformer Prime is now the first real tablet to be officially updated to Ice Cream Sandwich. Now this brings up the pressing question as to why the Motorola Xoom—a Google Experience Device and Google’s lead device for Android 3.0 Honeycomb—has not yet been updated. Shame on you, Motorola. Amazing job, Asus!

Now, however, is when the real fun begins. Sit back, grab a cold one, and watch in the Transformer Prime Development Forum as the inevitable flood of Ice Cream Sandwich ROMs appear. Go, go, go!
