    What's the REAL advantage of running Prime with ICS?

    Does TF201 REALLY works a lot better with ICS than when it is running with Gingerbread <insert>and/or Honeycomb</insert> or is it simply a lot of GUI improvement over Gingerbread <insert>and/or Honeycomb</insert>?

    I am asking the question from a place of really not knowing. I own a TF101 and am considering TF201 (I am not much into playing games with my pad, though) . I am not sure about the ICS update hoopla going on right now.

    I welcome replies from anyone with any information to share.

    Thanks... :-)

    the GUI isn't much different than Asus hc, that is compared to under the hood differences which are quite substantial. Multitasking stability and GUI speed are most notable, yuou do lose ad hoc.

    You could google "android improvements in 4.0" for links on ICS features.

    i think you misunderstand what the ics update is all about.... which is cool

    yes the ics provides better data usage management, android beam feature, faceunlock, etc etc

    but from somebody who owned a gingerbread and ics phone, with a honeycomb & ics tablet

    i can tell you.. the number one complaint for android tablets is that android tablets doesn't have a lot of apps in the market

    so how does google resolve this?? they can't convert gingerbread apps for phones into honeycomb apps for tablets.. and we already tried reversing that and using gingerbread apps on honeycomb and it was disgusting

    so what can we(we as google) do?? SIMPLE.. update gingerbread apps to ics.. which requires updating phones and tablets to ics.. see the magic there? imagine the perfect world where every android device ran ics, no one.. whether you're an developer or consumer would have to worry like hmmm is this app compatible with a phone with a 4in screen or a tablet with 10in or a hybrid device with a 5 or 6in screen... ics was created to bridge the gaps between phones and tablets, not just make quadcore/dualcore devices faster then quadcore/duacore devices on honeycomb/gingerbread

    like i said in your other thread, try tetris or datpiffmobile (which are gingerbread apps) on ANY tablet not including the original galaxy tab of course because it runs gingerbread and you'll see why you too would root for less fragmentation in the android market

    Looks great on paper but actually getting everyone updated will never work. The system is much to fragmented. You could initiate something "moving forward" but no one is, are they? You have new devices hitting the market running 3. whatever and new apps optimized for honeycomb and not ICS.
    Its one of the reasons that I am sometimes attracted to apple tablets and phones.....I don't own Apple Tablets and phones but the ability to download and use something without compatibility issues is attractive...

    well it's something we'd have to give google/android time to address

    apple had a few bumps when they first started as well, not to mention they had a headstart

    of course every device will never run 4.0 or higher let alone 2.3 or higher

    but that's manufacturing companies fault for trying to market low end smartphones with crappy specs for sales

    we have new htc and samsung tabs debuting with 4.0 next month along with 4.0 phones and phones/tablets being upgraded to 4.0 later this year

    i'd have to disagree with the idea of nobody's moving forward
