Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is meant to find that tasty middle ground between the smartphone-centric Android 2.3 Gingerbread and the tablet-friendly Android 3.x Honeycomb. We already know that the Galaxy Nexus is launching with some ICS, but Asus is quick to point out that its tablets will be getting a nice taste of the Ice Cream Sandwich too.
It has now been confirmed that the Eee Pad tablet range from Asus will indeed support Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This is for the entire Asus Eee Pad “family,” which presumably includes the Transformer and the Slider, as well as any other Eee Pads they may have hiding up their sleeves.
That’s the good news. The bad news is that Asus isn’t quite as quick to point out any kind of timeline for the upgrade process, so you’ll have to be stuck with Android 3.2 Honeycomb in the meantime until they figure out how to get ICS to play friendly with the Eee Pads. It makes you wonder if the Eee Pad Transformer 2 will ship with ICS, but that’s probably just wishful thinking.
