Update: Asus Italy provides the following clarification in this regard on his Facebook page.

“This whole thing started because our HQ has indicated deadline as a generic” february / march “that has always been interpreted as” approximately the end of February “, or the turn of February and March. It’s the same thing you said ASUS Singapore. It does not change one iota what is already stated in the past. That surely will not update these days. could delay until the first week of March and little more. We doubt you go further, given that the indication is always “february / march” and there were counter-HQ. However, given that it is always possible that an update of this magnitude is postponed for a few days if you find any bugs to fix. For example, the update to first had to go over a week ago. And it arrived today. The update to ICS is much bigger and challenging. So our priority is not given much respect to perfection, as to release a stable update. Recall that the update is completely free and then ASUS is working (hard) to support users who have purchased this product. An effort should be rewarded with trust and positive, not critical if there are delays of a few days “
