If you’re the owner of an ASUS Transformer tablet, the original edition and holding out for the Android 4.0 update, boy do we have bad news for you… The update has been delayed to as late as March, although ASUS originally promised a February release for the ICS software. Keep in mind that the Transformer Prime got it share of updating on January 10th, so at least that’s covered.
The ASUS Singapore’s Facebook page is the one spreading the news here, about the delay of the update for the OG Transformer model. Well, that shouldn’t be that much of a bummer for anyone, especially if you’ve been messing with the likes of CyanogenMod 9 for a while now. ASUS has been really fast when it comes to updates so far, being among the first, if not the very first to release various Honeycomb flavors to its devices and Android 4.0 as soon as it could to the Prime.
Compare that to what Samsung is doing to the Galaxy Tabs and you’ll see that everything is peachy for ASUS slate owners. For those worried about problems causing the delay, we actually have no idea what’s causing it, since the hardware of the original Transformer tablet is capable of running the latest Android. Of course, this delay could only apply locally and eventually fade out as the update arrives overnight… so let’s hope for the best.
