    With Asus not listed on the preferred OEMs list what are the chances that Transformer owners are left back on updates?

    Google Looking to Promise Android Updates For Up to 18 Months After Purchase; Carriers and OEMs on Board


    Also, do you think the skinning that Asus has done on top of Stock Android to add the usability of their dock will affect the Transformer's ability to get updates. There was a picture of the Transformer on Stage today during the keynote. I wonder how that will affect things.

    Hopefully being a smaller company, Asus will be on top of sending out updates. Keep in mind that they haven't really entered into the Android market until this release of the Transformer, which I believe is their first Android device.

    And as far as Asus skinning stock Android, I don't think they made too many changes other than putting on some of their apps, adding a few Asus widgets (date and weather), and customizing the menu buttons. I don't see why those small changes/updates would affect them being able to update their users to future versions of Android.

    The list on the screen are not all of the companies that have accepted the plan. If the OEM agrees to play ball, they are in.

    Asus is the manufacturer of the Garminphone, so this isn't their first Android device.
