Transformer Prime Gets 4.0.3 (ICS) Updateby Anand Lal Shimpi on January 11, 2012 3:25 AM EST
A couple of days earlier than originally expected, ASUS pushed out an update to its Transformer Prime bringing the tablet up to Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich). I brought my Prime with me to Vegas just to be ready for when this update went live. I installed the update last night and have played with the platform a bit since then. Tegra 3 definitely does a better job of handling the ICS UI compared to OMAP 4 in the Galaxy Nexus (more on this in our review tomorrow). In particular, bringing up the task switcher on the Prime is much smoother than it is on the Galaxy Nexus.
ASUS kept the quick settings menu in the lower right as well as the CPU governor settings we loved from our original review.
I'm very pleased to see such a quick turnaround on the TF Prime ICS port. If we can get similar progress on Tegra 2 based tablets I'll be very happy.
