ASUS Eee Pad Transformer

Aocos PX102 tablet is a Transformer inspired slate for $200 with 4.1 Jelly Bean

The ASUS Transformer tablet really started a new trend in the world of tablets. Many have tried to offer similar options but ASUS is still leading the pack. As usual, those Chinese manufacturers have came up with their own alternative for half the cost. Meet the Aocos PX102 "Hummingbird" tablet with a 1.6 GHz processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and of course a Transformer-styled keyboard dock.

Asus rebrands tablet line to ‘Transformer Pad’ and adds LTE

"Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime" - a bit of a mouthful, isn't it? Asus would seem to agree, since they're finally breaking their line of Android tablets away from the "Eee" branding that started the netbook craze way back in 2007. Now new members of the docking tablet family will simply be known as "Transformer Pad", plus a distinctive model number afterwards. That leaves the Transformer Prime as the last Asus tablet to be saddled with the Eee brand. Other tablet lines in Asus' hardware armada will be known by other names, like the Padfone or the smaller MeMO tablets.

Localization for other markets may take some time, but by the look of things it should indeed be before the end of the month.

Asus UK says Transformer ICS update coming in February

Dear Asus: please get your disparate public relations teams to talk to one another. Follow along, if you will: way back in 2011, before the Eee Pad Transformer Prime came out, Asus assured the many owners of the original Transformer TF101 that they'd be getting a timely update to Ice Cream Sandwich as well. In January, just after Prime owners were enjoying some tasty ICS, Asus said they had planned the OG update for February. Then the Singapore branch of Asus stated on their Facebook page that the update could be coming as late as March.

Android Community Evening Wrap-Up: February 15, 2012

Earlier on today, we had found out CyanogenMod 9 may make use of Onskreen's Cornerstone multitasking engine. It was just recently announced, and proved to be quite an amazing concept. Actually, we had wondered why the concept wasn't already natively part of Android. Next, word got out that Verizon may release a white Galaxy Nexus with reduced price and storage. Reduced price is key here, and if a white model will be available at a reduced price, it's almost certain another cheaper black variant could see stores too.
