The early part of February has officially passed, and owners of the Transformer tablet by ASUS are still without Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It was in January that we originally reported that ASUS was planning to update the original Transformer tablet in the early part of February, but a new report courtesy of ASUS’ Singapore Facebook page suggests that the update is now being scheduled for March.
Unfortunately, there isn’t a reason provided on the Facebook page as to why the update would be pushed back. Here’s the official statement found on the region-based social networking site:
“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 the Feb/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”
Android Police point out that this piece of information is based on the Singapore site, and it could potentially mean that the US-based version of the device will not be effected. However, they are talking about the Wi-Fi model, which is the same model here in the States, so there probably wouldn’t be any reason to think the update for the device hasn’t been delayed here as well.
As soon as we learn more, we’ll pass it along.
