    There is a new rumor suggesting that the Asus Transformer Prime will actually be delayed until December, but luckily this isn't really bad news, as the delay is supposedly to make sure that the device comes out with Ice Cream Sandwich preloaded. The tab was originally going to launch with Honeycomb, but according to DigiTimes, that may have changed. The report indicates that in order to compete more aggressively with the impending launch of Windows 8 from Microsoft, Google has been working hard with Asus to include Android 4.0/ICS with the Transformer Prime. We should probably take this info with a grain of salt as DigiTimes can sometimes have sketchy info, but many of their reports have turned out to be accurate as well.

    If this is true, it will probably be worth waiting a bit longer for, don't you think?

    And take the crown of the first tablet with ICS, sounds like a good move to me. Better hurry it up tho if they want to get in on the Christmas shoppers
