Ice Cream Sandwich update for ASUS Transformer Prime now available

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) is rolling out to the ASUS Transformer Prime tablet today, a full two days earlier than previously anticipated. Engadget has posted a hands-on with the Transformer Prime post-update and found that the quickness of the device is vastly improved with ICS, especially when it comes to web browsing; websites that previously took 10-20 seconds to fully load now do so in about 6.

There are a few user interface tweaks in the Ice Cream Sandwich update, the most noticeable being the upgrade to the Roboto font scheme Google developed. With the ICS update comes the swipe to dismiss notifications feature, which comes in handy on tablets where the resolution is high enough that the “x” next to the notification you want to dismiss is so small.

Though the upgrade won’t magically upgrade your device to the Transformer Prime TF700T that ASUS announced yesterday, it will make your Transformer Prime tablet feel┬álike a brand new tablet. If you haven’t received your OTA update yet, be sure to head into settings and manually check for the firmware update.

Once you’ve upgraded to ICS, be sure to leave a comment below and let us know how Google’s latest and greatest OS is treating your Transformer Prime tablet.
