ASUS did promise the original Eee Pad Transformer would receive Ice Cream Sandwich in February, and have now, begun to fulfil that promise. The original TF101 Transformer is now receiving the ICS update, with users in Taiwan seeing the update first.
The UK are expected to be the next ones on the list, with other regions across the various ponds to receive the ICS update over the coming days. ASUS are known to stagger releases, in case any nasty bugs pop up at the last minute, instead of unleashing the updates to the entire user base, and experiencing issues somewhere along the line.
ASUS have also used the announcement to remind us of its pride in commitment to long product life-cycles and also to look forward to some new innovations at next weeks Mobile World Congress.
I ended up giving my Mum my original Transformer, I might have to update her to ICS so I can check the OS out myself shortly.
