    Carefully worded statement that says nothing..

    Note the: “our aim”….

    Meaning nothing concrete. They need a WE WILL.

      I hear the Xoom will have 3.2 by the end of November.

        And that really is shite, as the Transformer has had 3.2.1 for 6 weeks or more.

        Don’t get me wrong, I really love my Transformer, it’s a fantastic purchase, and I think the liklihood of it getting ICS is very high, but Asus words are carefully picked.

        Clearly the Transformer is CAPABLE of running ICS, but Will Asus do it, when the Transformer2 is just around the corner, rocking ICS as standard?

        Anyone know if Asus signed up to the 18 month support cycle that Google proposed for Android updates? I know all the others did.,news-11146.html
