Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) was expected to address the fragmentation problem with Google’s ubiquitous OS, at least in terms of uniting newish smartphones with tablets.
But since the big reveal a couple of weeks ago, things seem very much up in the air. Asus is the latest manufacturer to give us an indication of what to expect.
The original Asus Eee Pad Transformer was already earmarked for an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich, and a translation from ASUS Deutschland’s Facebook page has dished the dirt on a couple more devices.
According to the Facebookness, the imminent Asus Eee Pad Slider and the quad-core Transformer Prime are expected to ship with Honeycomb (Android 3.0), with an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich at a later date.
A few weeks ago, Asus chairman Jonney Shih confirmed that the Padfone (remember the weird thingy with the smartphone that docks inside the tablet shell?) will ship in Q1 2012 with Ice Cream Sandwich on board.
The Transformer Prime is scheduled for an official unveiling on November 9.
