It’s time for another round of “When is this device getting Ice Cream Sandwich?” I know a lot of us have probably gone onto our respective manufacturers Facebook pages’ asking when we can expect the OTA for an Android 4.0 update, including me. This one includes the original Transformer from ASUS. We’ve already heard that Google is approving the update for the Transformer tf101 tablet, another user posted on ASUS’ Facebook page asking how long that would take? ASUS answered “You should be receiving your update in mid-February” that’s kind of good news, I know all you Transformer owners want a taste of ICS right now don’t [...]
Within days after the source code of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) was released, a couple of Android smartphones have been bestowed unofficial builds of the latest Android version. It was only a matter of time before the developer community made a tablet version, a near-perfect build of which made it to the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer TF101.
As shown in the video below, most of the fundamental Android features are working: the touchscreen, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, and Web browsing. In the meantime, the devs are still ironing out the kinks regarding GPS, sensors, graphical glitches, audio, and screen rotation.
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 [...]
With all of this crazy Ice Cream Sandwich, Galaxy Nexus (Prime) madness afoot, it’s easy to forget about one of the most loved Android tablets out there – the Asus Transformer.
The Asus has rightly earned its place on the podium of best selling Android tablets for a few reasons. First, it came to market with a spectacular price, the quality of it is quite good, and ASUS has been great about providing prompt updates.
Still – with all that being said – so many of you have held out for a 3G variant of the highly acclaimed ASUS Transformer.

I was once like most people out there, pondering over whether or not I should purchase a tablet. Do I need it? What can I use it for? Will I get bored with it? All these questions floated through my mind before I purchased the highly praised Asus Eee Pad transformer 32gb Android tablet. I settled on the Transformer because of the great specs, excellent reviews and great price point. The Transformer is my 2nd tablet, as I owned an original iPad for about a week and then promptly sold it due to it not having flash. I felt handicapped with the iPad, and for what reason? A possible theory I’ve heard is that Apple doesn’t want flash because they want people to purchase [...]

Anyway, according to Taiwanese English news site Digitimes, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer is a huge hit, and has, so far, managed to ship over 400,000 units since its launch. This makes it the best selling Android tablet in the world currently. Plus, Asus was caught off guard with [...]
In this article, we compare what we think are going to be two of this year’s hottest Android tablets – the Asus Eee Pad Transformer, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Both are excellent – there is no question. Really, at the end of the day, like with most things – it all comes down to personal preference. Google has just updated Android Honeycomb to Android 3.1, and with it, come several significant improvements to the user experience. Browsing is snappier and more responsive, flash plays more seamlessly, and things are just all around better. Critics in the mobile computing space are finally agreeing that Honeycomb is ready for prime time, and can finally [...]
