Here's a bit of good news for all the OG Transformer owners out there - ASUS has confirmed via its UK Facebook page that the original tablet-netbook hybrid device will indeed be receiving an update to Ice Cream Sandwich. While it was previously assumed that ASUS would continue to support this older-but-still-awesome device, it's good to see the company step up and publicly confirm that the update is coming instead of leaving users questioning it for months.

A quick rump over the to official TF101 landing page also confirmed the upgrade, as it now proudly displays "4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgradable" text alongside its current software version information.

There's no exact word as to when the OGTF will get its 4.0 update, but ASUS has said that it will be "ASAP after the January 12th launch with the Prime TF201," so hold tight - it shouldn't be too much longer.
