Yesterday morning, I was finally able to upgrade my Asus Transformer TF101 to the latest Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich. We checked out what’s new with ICS and compare it with the old Honeycomb 3.2.
Since I also have the new Transformer Prime TF201, it’s easy to compare the Transformer TF101 in terms of what ICS offers the two tablets from Asus.
After several minutes of downloading the update directly into the tablet and the system rebooted, I actually did not notice anything in terms of the interface. In fact, unless you go to the settings and look at the profile of the tablet, you would not really notice any difference (well, there’s some subtle changes there if you just look really closely).
What I actually liked with the ICS on the Transformer Prime is that the Status bar shows the battery life of the keyboard dock and the tablet separately. It even animates the icon when you plug the Prime to the power outlet showing that the dock is charging and transfers the same to the tablet at the same time.
As for performance, I didn’t also notice anything significant. I ran a few benchmarks and the results are almost the same.
Has anyone done the update to ICS on their Transformer TF101? Noticed anything new or totally different?
