Since being upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich, OG Asus Transformer owners have been plagued with bugs. Luckily for them, Asus is on the ball and has began sending out updates to all tablets that are infected. Bugs included random reboots and various freezes that would require a hard restart along with reports of the sound to completely stop working in the middle of use. Whatever the problems, hopefully they’re being fixed with this new update. Go grab it and let us know if you see anything else.
Cheers everyone who sent this in!
The Asus Transformer 300 tablet that we have been hearing rumors for has been officially shown at MWC. The folks over at Engadget have had a good hands-on with the tablet whose purpose many folks have been questioning. Is it the next Prime? Does it have top-of-the-line specs? Well, no actually. The Transformer 300 will be Asus’ more affordable, slightly less super-tablet for folks who don’t need to spend $600+ on an Android slate. (more…)
Asus said it would be today and they weren’t messing around. The Ice Cream Sandwich update for the “OG” Transformer is available now to all users. From your tablet, cruise into Settings>About and then check for system updates. It should be there. Welcome to Android 4.0.
Cheers Mike61969, Adam, Colton,
According to the “official” Asus Twitter account, Ice Cream Sandwich should arrive on your Transformer starting tomorrow. Only hours after the update was announced for Taiwan with a “soon after” timeline for the rest of the world, this is fantastic news.
Update: It looks like it could happen as early as tomorrow for U.S. customers.
Taiwan isn’t exactly what you wanted to hear, but at least it’s a start, right? Asus has indicated through Facebook that Ice Cream Sandwich for the original Transformer will rollout to other countries “soon after” though, so hopefully that means weeks rather than months. After Prime owners were given the update basically at launch, the OG crowd has been itching for it themselves. Shouldn’t be that much longer.
Specs have leaked before Asus’ official announcement at this year’s MWC for the next Transformer tablet. Just a week back, a couple shots of the rumored tablet made their way onto the Internet with the model number “TF300T” accompanying the pictures. We thought they could have been misleading, due to the fact that there was no flash on the backside of the tablet, but according to this new list of leaked specs, that may have in fact been the next Eee Pad.

A statement regarding the eventual update of the original Eee Pad Transformer to Ice Cream Sandwich has been issued to concerned customers via the Asus Facebook page. The Transformer Prime has been enjoying ICS for a bit now, so we can understand the impatience some Transformer owners may be experiencing.
Dear fellow Asus members, we would like to say that we appreciate all the support we see in our Asus Facebook page every day. It makes our contributions worthwhile and fulfilling.
We are informed that the ICS upgrade for TF101 will be ready within theFeb/March 2012 period. You will be able to receive the upgrade notification via FOTA once we have a confirmation date.
We thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
So, February/March time frame? That’s not bad. Seeing as how we are already half way through the month, March is right around the corner. Just a little bit longer, folks.

Above is a snapshot taken of what appears to possibly be the next rendition of the Asus Transformer tablet. According to documents alongside the unknown tablet, it is said to be model TF300T, which is a higher model number than its descendants. The Transformer Prime is model TF201, while the OG Eee Pad Transformer is model TF101.
Besides its obvious brick red backing, there is not much to actually separate this mystery device from the others in the lineup. One thing that is noticeable is the absence of an LED flash for the camera. Could this be just a red OG Transformer? We can hope that more leaked info (crosses fingers for specs) eventually makes its way to the Interwebz so we can go back to “hypebeastin’ devices.” One more leaked shot after the break. (more…)
