Yesterday, during the NVIDIA press conference at CES, it was announced that the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablet would receive Android 4.0 starting immediately. The NVIDIA Tegra 3 boasting tablet was initially scheduled to begin receiving the update on January 12th, but I’m Transformer Prime owners are more than happy to see the update come earlier.
With the ICS update, the Transformer Prime becomes the first tablet available with the coveted Android OS. Now, this is also good news for Asus Transformer owners because that tablet is scheduled to receive the Android 4.0 update as soon as possible after the Transformer Prime is upgraded.
Hopefully, we will see the same update roll out soon for the original Transformer, but either way, it’s nice to see Asus on top of things and it will surely pay off with consumer loyalty in the long run.
