Asus' Transformer Prime may launch with Ice Cream Sandwich

Shih teases us with the Transformer Prime

As expected, Asus chairman Jonney Shih was on hand at All Things Digital AsiaD conference where he gave the world its first look at the next-generation Android tablet.  According to Engadget this tablet will be known as the Transformer Prime when it debuts on November 9th.  Specifications include a quad-core Tegra 3 Kal-El processor, and an 8.3mm thick body with  USB and mini-HDMI ports.

When asked whether or not the Transformer Prime will see Ice Cream Sandwich by year’s end, Shi replied, ‘Maybe earlier than that’.  Reading the tea leaves, and hoping for the best, this coy response tells us that the 10.1-inch tablet will launch Android 4.0 under the hood.  We suspected that this could be the case, as we found the tag of “Ice Cream Sandwich” listed with the Transformer Prime teaser video.

Expectations were already high for the successor to the original Transformer but now we’re going overgeeked thanks to the rumors.

    I think this may be the point I jump on the tablet bandwagon, or at least buy one for my daughter to use as e-reader/gaming thing/net browser.

    The way the allthingsd.com article reads, it seems that ICS was announced for existing tablets, then he announced the Prime
