CES: Ice Cream Sandwich Demoed on ASUS Transformer Prime

Ice Cream Sandwich for the ASUS EEE Pad Transformer Prime Android tablet was planned to be available much later than it appears to be happening, as it has started to roll out for users just a couple of days ago.

Ice Cream Sandwich May Arrive On Samsung Galaxy Tab, Galaxy S

Presumaby, the same issue must be affecting the port of Ice Cream Sandwich to the original 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab. That shipped with Android 2.2 Froyo last year. The assumption is the elimination (or shrinkage) of TouchWiz would enable ICS to get onto both devices a little more easiliy. Samsung isn’t guaranteeing an ICS port to the SGS and Gtab, so you might have more luck waiting for an unofficial port via the folks at XDA or elsewhere on the web.

And now, we are already on the cusp of the next Google flagship phone, the Google Nexus Prime. No, there’s no relation to Optimus… possibly because Google sounds like it’s sticking with Samsung rather than switching to LG or back to HTC.
