    Question About the Future!

    I hope this is not a dumb question! I am not terribly well versed in the world of all things Android or tablets!

    I have been contemplating getting a Transformer for a few weeks. Essentially I'm trying to decide if it'd be better to wait for the next rendition sometime down the road..

    My question is regarding the android software (honeycomb/gingerbread/ice cream sandwich, etc)... will the current Transformer be fully upgradeable to say "Ice Cream Sandwich" when it is inevitably released upon the world? Does anyone know for sure yet?

    I'm sorry if this has been asked before! Thanks for any help/suggestions/or encouragements to go ahead and get this awesome looking thing!

    You should be able to count on all Android upgrades working on the new generation of tablets up to at least 4.0. Ice Cream Sandwich is expected to be Android 3.3 based on what I've read. It is mainly intended to bring some 3.0 tablet features to smartphones.

    We'll need to wait to find out how backward compatible Google makes Android 4.0 but I wouldn't expect 4.0 to be out any sooner than 18-24 months.

    Don't wait for the latest and greatest or else you'll never get anything. Ice Cream Sandwich will be honeycomb for smart phones. So don't worry about that.

    Yeah it should definitely be able to handle it. However Ice Cream Sandwich is a good ways off.
