ASUS Transformer Prime to get Ice Cream Sandwich on January 12 (updated)

Along with making an announcement about the locked bootloader issue of the Transformer Prime, ASUS has also included a date of when the quad-core tablet will receive the Android 4.0 update. The software bump will start on January 12 of this year making it the first Android tablet to receive ICS.

We’re not sure at this point if we will get the update here in the U.S. comes January 12. Let’s hope that ASUS includes a date in their upcoming statement.


ASUS U.S. has just released their own statement confirming what what their other counterparts have already revealed as far as the ICS update is concerned:

ASUS has been working hard to make the highly anticipated Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich available on the Transformer Prime, and today, we have good news for you. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich FOTA worldwide update for the Transformer Prime will start from Jan 12th, 2012. Thank you for your patience and support through this process.
