I'm afraid not, only that ASUS said they were working hard on bringing it to the device as soon as possible after the (now incorrect) Transformer Prime Jan 12th release.

Hopefully this early launch on the Prime means that us '101 owners will also get ICS early. :thumbsup:

Edit: just found this https://www.facebook.com/asus.uk/posts/10150469186597677 which says:

ICS 4.0 will be coming to existing Eee Pad Transformer TF101. Exact date TBC but we are working on making the FOTA update available a.s.a.p. after Jan 12th launch with Prime TF201.
