I have always liked ASUS. Their involvement in the PC business is the cornerstone of their Android business today. Previously they cooperated with Garmin to manufacture a Garmin-Asus Android phone. The Garmin-Asus phone received moderate success, but the enthusiasm towards the device was quenched as consumers were hoping for Garmin to offer their app on all devices instead of just one.
In the tablet segment, Asus generated massive attention for the Asus Ee Pad Transformer – an impressively made dual core tablet that mounts on a keyboard dock. Suffice to say, the Transformer put the Atrix and Motorola’s laptop dock to shame.

Asus has already said a couple of times that we’re going to see Android 4.0 on the upcoming Transformer Prime by the end of this year, but what about their other 2 tablets, the original Eee Pad Transformer and the Eee Pad Slider?
If you’ve already bought one, then you can relax because Asus had put out this official statement where they say the Android 4.0 update is coming to all their tablets, however they don’t seem to give an exact schedule:
“Are you waiting for Ice Cream Sandwich? Good news for ASUS customers. Google recently announced the latest update for Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, which brings some exciting new features and [...]
The Asus Transformer Prime is arguably the most hotly anticipated Android tablet to ever come to fruition folks – and for good reason. Dubbed the world’s first Tegra 3 tablet, it will be equipped with NVidia quad-core Kal-El Tegra 3 for incredible performance and exceptional battery life, and will be sporting a ridiculously thin 8.3mm profile. To make matters even more enticing, its encapsulated in a fingerprint resistant, brushed aluminum body – closely mirroring the aesthetics of Asus’ gorgeous Zenbook. Oh and did I mention it is to be the world’s first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich [...]
The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer 2 is to be one – if not the first – tablets that will use the new powerful quad-core NVIDIA processor codenamed Kal-El (Tegra 3). Tegra 3 was previously reported to be a quad-core processor but recent reports are mentioning that it will bear a fifth “companion” core, making the processor effectively quintiple-core, and consequently making the ASUS Eee Pad Trasfomer 2 more appealing, with better performance and battery life.

Nvidia promised us (again) that we’ll see their latest Tegra chip at the end of August in tablets. I don’t know if it’s their fault, or the manufacturers’ fault for adopting the chip late, or perhaps they all wanted to wait for Android 4.0 to launch it together with Kal-El/Tegra 3, but the first tablets with Kal-El got delayed until October. The first tablet that is supposed to have this quad core 1.5 Ghz chip is apparently Asus’ next-gen Transformer tablet.The first Transformer
The first Transformer was probably the most loved Android tablet from the first wave of Honeycomb tablets. It wasn’t the lightest or the slimmest, but it [...]
