Asus mentioned a few days back that Ice Cream Sandwich for the original Transformer tablet will drop mid-February. A specific date has yet to be revealed, but the update will likely boost the device’s speed as well as bringing that much-improved Ice Cream Sandwich UI. If you’ve a little patience, we highly recommend sticking around for what we suspect will be a little stabler release.
