For those of you excited about your new Transformer Prime tablet, things just got better. Right now ahead of schedule Asus is releasing OTA the ICS update for its Transformer Prime model. Ice Cream Sandwich which is the development name for Android 4.0, brings with it a lot of polish. GPU accelerated graphics are working more smoothly. The base Holo UX theme has been updated with the attention and planning of Matias Duarte (of webOS fame). Roboto is the now the default font, and it is quite scale-able and looks very pleasant in larger from factors. You can watch a YouTube video below of the newly released OS.
Of course the big question now is where is ICS for the Google Experience Device the Motorola Xoom? Google admitted the source code natively compiled for the hardware, and essentially it was zero work for Motorola Mobility to put the drivers in place. The fact that Asus beat them to the release on this is a sign of customer treatment on behalf of the companies. Kudos for Asus on pushing for a rapid release. Although admittedly this was mainly to help the sales of a new device. Too bad this didn’t fix the marginal GPS and WiFi issues caused by the solid aluminum body in the Prime. They are releasing a newer 1920×1200 TF700T, with an altered backing to resolve the issue.
