The latest Android build was officially announced mid October for the upcoming Galaxy Nexus smartphone, but tablets sporting version 4.0 are still MIA.
German site Tabletblog.de, however, claims that the Transformer Prime tablet will be upgradeable to Android 4.0 sometime after its launch. Asus had reportedly already hinted at the Android upgrade through its Facebook page. While no date for the supposed update was provided, we would be surprised if Ice Cream Sandwich didn’t make it for the tablet, especially since the device will be sporting Nvidia’s quad-core Tegra 3 processor. The Transformer Prime is still expected to ship with Android Honeycomb out of the box.
The original Transformer will also be updated to Android 4.0 as well. Hopefully the updates will release swiftly, as the long update delays remain a major criticism for Google and its Android platform. Asus had stated that tablets running Ice Cream Sandwich should reach market before the end of this year.
More news regarding the 10.1-inch Transformer Prime will be coming November 9th.
